U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Wednesday, four pro-gun measures were passed out of the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee.  These bills now head to the House Floor where they could be voted on as early as Wednesday or Thursday of next week. Thank you to the bill sponsors for ushering these four important bills through the House Committee.  These measures protect our freedom in times of uncertainty and emergency, including during the current Covid-19 outbreak.  Please contact your state Representative and ask them to support these pro-2A bills.

House Bill 746, sponsored by Rep. Ray Garofalo, allows those who lawfully possess a firearm to carry concealed for self-defense during a mandatory evacuation under a declared state of emergency or disaster.

House Bill 781, sponsored by Rep. Blake Miguez, establishes that firearms and ammunition manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers, and retailers are “Essential Businesses” that shall not be prohibited from conducting business during a declared disaster or emergency.  HB 781 further prevents law-abiding gun owners’ rights from being infringed during proclaimed curfews.

House Bill 140, sponsored by Rep. Blake Miguez, prevents local authorities and municipalities from imposing restrictions to prohibit the possession of a firearm.  Preemption legislation is designed to stop municipalities from creating a patchwork of different laws that turn a law-abiding citizen into a criminal for simply crossing a jurisdictional line.

House Bill 334, sponsored by Reps. Bryan Fontenot, Blake Miguez, and Charles Owen, authorizes a concealed handgun permit holder to carry a concealed handgun in a church, synagogue, mosque, or other similar place of worship.

Again, please contact your state Representative and ask them to support the above pro-2A bills.

Here’s hoping that all pass the Legislature and receive the Governor’s signature. Too bad House Bill 746 doesn’t provide for such at all times, not just during evacuations under declared state of emergency.
