NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, Senate Bill 232 passed unanimously in the state Senate Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee by voice vote and will now be considered by the full Senate.

SB 232, sponsored by state Senator Brandon Smith (R-30), would require that when a chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) signoff is required for the transfer of a firearm or other item regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA), certification must be provided within fifteen days as long as the applicant is not prohibited by law from receiving the firearm or other item.

Under current law, CLEOs are not required to act on an application for an NFA item, so a law-abiding applicant has no recourse when an application is denied by a CLEO for any reason, including their own personal feelings toward NFA items.  By removing any possibility of personal bias and creating a statewide standard, SB 232 protects the rights of law-abiding gun owners across the Bluegrass State.

SB 232 is an important pro-gun reform that protects your Second Amendment rights, and we need your help to ensure that the Senate passes SB 232.  Please e-mail your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support SB 232.  Please also call 800-372-7181 to register your SUPPORT for this NRA-backed legislation.  Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
