U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On Monday, the House General Laws Committee is hearing House Bill 1068, to ensure Second Amendment rights remain protected during states of emergencies. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1068.

House Bill 1068 designates firearm businesses as “essential” and prohibits the state, government officials and agencies, or local governments from prohibiting, restricting, or reducing their operations during declared states of emergencies or disasters.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many anti-gun officials around the country, at both state and local levels of government, took the opportunity to unilaterally suspend Second Amendment rights by shutting down gun stores and ranges. Unfortunately, this coincided with many Americans trying to exercise their Second Amendment rights for the first time during that period of uncertainty and resulted in them being unable to access arms, ammunition, or proper training. HB 1068 protects the exercise of a constitutional right from such politically motivated attacks and ensures that citizens have those rights when they need them most.

Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1068.

PLEASE all you Missouri readers, please contact your senator to request they bring up and vote for Missouri HB85. This is the bill also know as the Second Amendment Protection Act. It has NOT been scheduled for a vote and needs to be resurrected, passed and sent Gov.Parsons for his signature. Because of the present federal government, this may be our last chance for passage and firearms protection. If the second amendment goes, the others will be right behind. THANK YOU.

RJG. HB 85 and 1068 are two different bills but they both need to pass. I have called and written and thanks for your efforts too! Every thing we can get done to protect our rights are a step in the right direction.
