Today we saw action on two bills designed to eliminate your ability to protect yourself and your family.
SB 1538, (visit a library –* go to prison) which we told you about on Monday, was officially moved to the Senate Rules Committee.
This afternoon, HB 4005 (mandatory gun lock downs) was moved to the House Rules Committee.
Two amendments were adopted before it was sent to Rules.
The “dash-1” amendment, which we told you about on Feb 8, and a new amendment , the “dash-7” amendment, requested by anti-gun Paul Evans.
The “dash-1” replaces most of the language of the original bill but keeps almost all of the worst provisions.
The “dash-7” basically says you will not be required to lock up your self defense firearm if you are completely alone in your home and all your doors and windows are locked.You might think we make this stuff up. But we don’t.
So, if your wife comes home unexpectedly, you are in violation.
Summertime and your patio door is open? You are in violation.
Upstairs windows open?* Violation.
Amendments by pro-gun members of the committee were voted down.
House Rep Sherrie Sprenger served notice of a possible “minority report” on HB 4005. A minority report is a substitute for an existing bill. Sprenger is a pro-gun Republican, so while we have not seen the language she is proposing you can assume it will be something positive for gun owners.
Now we need to double down to kill HB 4005 in the form it was sent to the Rules Committee.
Your efforts so far have had an effect.* Keep up the good work.
Please use this link to send a message that you strongly oppose legislation to render your family defenseless and hold you responsible for the crimes of others.
