NRA Institute for Legislative Action reports that House Bill 314 has passed the legislature and will go to Gov. Phil Bryant for signature. HB 314 provides 2nd Amendment protections as described by the NRA below:
H.B. 314 expands protections against government confiscation of legally-possessed firearms during a state of emergency or natural disaster. It would also protect law-abiding gun owners from restrictive gun control laws at the local level by giving them a legal remedy to challenge those that are enacted outside the scope of what state law allows. This bill would also protect the rights of law-abiding citizens who live in public housing to possess firearms and put a stop to local governments destroying firearms rounded up in taxpayer-funded gun buyback programs.
Executive Director for NRA-ILA Chris W. Cox credited Rep. Andy Gipson (R-77) and Senators Briggs Hopson (R-23) and Sean Tindell (R-49) for getting the bill through their respective legislative bodies and also noted the leadership of House Speaker Philip Gunn (R-56) and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves.
