Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Senate Bill 71, the Church Protection Act, has been assigned to the House Judiciary Committee and could be heard any day.

This legislation, introduced by state Senator Bryan King (R-5), passed in the Arkansas Senate yesterday with bipartisan support.  SB 71 would remove the absolute prohibition on concealed carry permit holders from being able to defend themselves in any church or other place of worship.  If SB 71 is passed and enacted into law, churches and other places of worship will be able to decide if permit holders will be allowed to carry concealed firearms on their property for self-defense.

Please contact members of the Arkansas House Judiciary Committee and urge them to support Senate Bill 71 when it is brought up for consideration.
