Arkansas: Multiple Pro-Gun Reforms Introduced in the Natural State


Charlotte, NC –-( State Representative Justin Harris (R-81) has introduced House Bill 1503, which would protect lawful firearm retailers from illegal gun sting operations such as those orchestrated by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Anti-gun extremist Bloomberg has sent hired agents into other states to attempt illegal firearm purchases in an effort to blame federally licensed firearm retailers for gun crime in New York City and around the country

HB 1503 has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee and has been placed on its calendar.  Please contact members of this committee and urge them to support HB 1503.

Also, state Representative Charlotte Vining Douglas (R-75) has introduced House Bill 1819, an important reform to the Governor's Emergency Powers.  HB 1819 would remove the ability of any Arkansas Governor to impose restrictions on the transfer or transportation of lawfully possessed firearms during a declared State of Emergency.  This bill has been referred to the House State Agencies & Governmental Affairs Committee.

Please contact members of this committee and urge them to support HB 1819.

Finally, state Senator Jason Rapert (R-35) has introduced Senate Bill 858, which would establish that Arkansas recognize any valid Right-to-Carry permit issued by another state.  This important reform would replace the current conditional reciprocity standard.

SB 858 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee, so please contact members of that committee and urge them to support SB 858.

    1. WHY ??? is this column being reprinted more than a year later ? AR does NOT carry-over legislation. Bills not passed DIE !!

    2. Read the Constitution. IT says the people have the right and the duty, to oust a tyrannical government. wake up america. The constitution is written is stone. Believe in it.

    3. Mayor Bloomberg needs to be doing some ( in house cleaning) before he sticks his screwed up nose where it does not belong!! Thats a feds job not a mayors job to run stings out of state. He should be more concerned in cleaning up that cass pool of a city than trying to catch a gun shop selling guns !! If he wants to go after illegal gun selling why doesnt he push the issue of the Obama administration running guns to the Mexican Drug Cartels !!! And the subsequent murder of 2 border patrol agents and hundreds of mexican nationals the guns killed??? Eric Holder should be in jail and Obama impeached for this. Mayor Bloomberg would be better off trying and convicting gun criminals in his own city. God knows the murder rate their is high enough as it is ( trying to blame gun shop owners) is cowardly and taking the ” easy way out !!!) He should be having the criminals doing time !!!! Not letting them out after a year of a15 years to life sentence! Who does these crimes??, not law abiding citizens !!! But dirt bags !! Who CANT BUY A DAMN GUN LEGALY !!!!! IN A GUN STORE!!!!”. they need to trace the guns they confiscate and convict the people who buy them for criminals!! Not go after gun store owners !!
      Why dont he figure out what food hes gon na ban next !!!! Like 12″ pizzas, boxes of popcorn, 16 oz beer cans etc
      he is nothing more than a spineless, crusading, liberal Democratic coward
