Securing 2nd Amendment Rights

House Republicans continue to stand firm against arbitrary and unconstitutional attacks on second amendment rights.

House Republicans voted down several bills that would unnecessarily restrict lawful gun owners including allowing localities to create ordinances that prohibit firearms in locality-owned libraries (HB 68), authorizing any locality by ordinance to prohibit the carrying of firearms in a public space (HB 1019), prohibiting the possession of firearms in the Capitol and any building used predominantly for the conduct of the business of the General Assembly (HB 928).

Further, we failed to report legislation that would prohibit any person who is not a licensed firearms dealer from purchasing more than one handgun in a 30-day period (HB 353) and instate a $250 fine for anyone who purchases or sells any large capacity magazines (HB 1145).
