Today, the House Judiciary Committee passed gun control legislation, House Bill 63. HB 63 will now head to the House floor for consideration. Please contact your state Representative and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 63 when it comes up for a vote.
House Bill 63 amends the current law on access to firearms to create a blanket prohibition from having a firearm unsecured and unavailable for use if it is potentially accessible by an “unauthorized person.” This mandatory storage law would do nothing more than render firearms useless in self-defense situations. Criminals love this bill as it tips the scales in their favor in self-defense situations. Further, this legislation seeks to place the blame on law-abiding gun owners for the potential criminal actions of others.
Again, please contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 63 when it comes up for a vote.
