Oppose HB 5054
AN ACT PROTECTING VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
This bill would violate due process rights for gun owners. Nearly half of these Temporary Restraining Orders do not become full restraining orders
Oppose HB 5623
AN ACT CONCERNING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, ACCESS TO MARSHALS, AND VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING
This bill would violate due process rights for gun owners. Nearly half of these Temporary Restraining Orders do not become full restraining orders.
The same identical language from HB 5054 is included in this bill. This bill is a very unsettling attempt to divide gun owners to make them look like we somehow support human trafficking.
Oppose HB 5408
AN ACT CONCERNING THE PRESENTATION OF A CARRY PERMIT
This bill would undermine the “reasonable suspicion” clause in the current law and would deprive gun owners of Constitutional rights protected under the 4th Amendment.
Support HB 5409
AN ACT CONCERNING APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR A TEMPORARY STATE PERMIT TO CARRY A PISTOL OR A REVOLVER.
This bill is a worthy of support. This will help establish uniform criteria for local issuing authorities across the state.
It is critical to contact your legislators to let them know your positions on these bills. Your communication with your elected officials is the only thing that will stop anti-gun bills from passing, and help pro-gun bills to pass. Remember, their job is to represent YOU!
