    Remember it is a Bill of Rights, not a Bill of Needs. We don't have to prove a need to keep and bear arms.

    HB 1348 has a hearing scheduled for 8:30 AM on Friday 1/30/09. Please come if you have positive testimony or just to show support. Even if you don't speak, the more supporters there, the better. They will take note of how many supporters in looking at what to do with the bill.

    The hearing went well. The committee has not voted yet, will most likely do so on 2-5-09 when they meet again. This leaves us time to contact the committee members. One of them friendly to this cause told me email is the best way. Their addresses can be found here

    Please email the committee members, even if they are not your rep, and ask for DO PASS recommendation with no amendments to limit campus carry.
