NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  Today, the Arkansas Senate passed Senate Bill 71 by a 28-4 vote, with three senators not voting.

This legislation, introduced by state Senator Bryan King (R-5), would remove the absolute prohibition on concealed carry permit holders from being able to defend themselves in any church or other place of worship.  If SB 71 is passed and enacted into law, churches and other places of worship will be able to decide if permit holders will be allowed to carry concealed firearms on their property for self-defense.

An NRA representative testified in support of this legislation last week in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  The NRA also testified in opposition to an amendment that sought to weaken this bill by requiring places of worship to acquire liability insurance if they allow permittees to carry concealed firearms on their property.  The amendment was defeated in committee.

This legislation now goes to the House, where it may face more opposition than in the Senate.  Please contact your state Representative and urge him or her to support Senate Bill 71 when it is brought up for consideration.
