U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, Governor Jim Justice signed Senate Bill 458 into law. It prohibits the state, government officials and agencies, or local governments, from restricting the lawful carrying, sale, or use of firearms and ammunition during states of emergency and also prevents them from closing gun stores and shooting ranges, unless that restriction applies equally to all businesses. This joins two other NRA-backed, pro-gun bills that Gov. Justice has signed so far this year.

NRA thanks Gov. Justice for signing SB 458. Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates.

Why wait until an emergency? The only way to truly protect 2A rights is to repeal all arms laws and use any means necessary to stop those who would violate those rights.

from restricting the lawful carrying, sale, or use of firearms and ammunition during states of emergency”, unless the emergency is related to Martians, or the two political parties merge in to one mega party, or the atmosphere thins…

My rights are not to be infringed. (what is that dot at the end of the sentence?)
