HB 1419 by Lawrence McClure (R) This bill (the companion to SB 1048) would allow churches, synagogues, and other religious institutions to authorize concealed license holders to take their firearms onto their properties. This also means that the designated carrier could take their concealed weapons into schoolsif the religious institution owns, rents, leases, or borrows the property. The proposal will be heard in the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee TOMORROW, Wednesday, Jan. 24th, at 8:00 A.M. EDT.
SB 1048 by Dennis Baxley (R) is back after being tabled last week in the Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill will be heard in that same committee on Thursday, Jan. 25th at 10:00 A.M. EDT. This bill, in a different form, was voted down in December. Yet Chairman Greg Steube continues to place it on the agenda.
Let’s resoundingly tell the members of both of these committees to vote NO on HB 1419 and SB 1048!
Your calls make a difference!
