Senate Local Courts Defeats Attack on Preemption

Yesterday, the Senate Local Government Committee defeated SB268 by a vote of 9 to 6. This bill would have created a patchwork of local gun restrictions by allowing local governments to pass ordinances banning firearms on property owned or leased by the locality. It would have also applied to access roads and parking areas for those facilities.

Please contact the following members of the Senate Local Government Committee and thank them for defeating SB268.
