U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On October 28th, the House Government Oversight Committee will hear House Bills 5187 and 5188, to ensure that Second Amendment rights remain protected during a state of emergency. Please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT HB 5187 and HB 5188.

House Bill 5187 and House Bill 5188 prohibit the state government from restricting the lawful carrying of firearms and ammunition, seizing firearms or ammunition, restricting firearm businesses and shooting ranges, and restricting hunting and fishing activities during a declared state of emergency or as an emergency response to an epidemic. Further, the legislation provides legal recourse for people who experience unjust infringements.

During the state of emergency last year for COVID-19, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued an executive order for all nonessential businesses and activities to cease, which purposefully referenced an outdated list of such industries, rather than the most updated federal guidelines that designated firearm and ammunition retailers as essential. In addition, 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 actively shutting down gun stores and ranges. HB 5187 and HB 5188 protect the exercise of a constitutional right from such politically motivated attacks and ensure that citizens have those rights when they need them most.

Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT HB 5187 and HB 5188.

Whitler hates freedom and the Constitution. It’s in their way.

This is just another bill that sounds like it protects our rights when in fact it is a red herring. All government has to do is delay the declaration of an emergency until the goon squads have disarmed the law abiding citizens thus making them unable to defend themselves from the politicians’ preferred constituents, the criminals. Just like Katrina. Don’t forget the picture of those brave California Highway Patrol officers ripping the old rusty .38 Special out of the hand of that 80 year old woman and throwing her to the floor breaking her shoulder and some of her ribs.… Read more »

Whitless is no different than any other CRB.
