you want to answer is fine with me. I will share this with our members
and the board.
Thanks so much for your support!
I hope you don't mind that rather than answering each question individually that I just tell you in a statement that I support all of the items listed and will vote FOR all of these and will glad to co-sponsor legislation on their behalf. I am a solid defender of gun rights. Please let me know if you need any additional information from me.
for State Senate District 9
From: Steve Jones
I contacted you last week about completing our survey about potential gun legislation. I am attaching a copy to you, and am also appending it to the end of this email.
Thanks for you attention to this!
1. Would you vote FOR a bill legalizing licensed open carry in Arkansas , similar to Tennessee ’s law?
2. Would you vote FOR a bill legalizing the open carry of firearms in rural, unincorporated areas only for persons engaged in hunting, fishing, hiking and camping activities?
3. Would you vote FOR a bill legalizing unlicensed open carry by non-felons in Arkansas ?
4. Would you vote FOR a bill legalizing unlicensed concealed carry in Arkansas while still protecting the ‘CHCL’ program for those wishing to have reciprocity with other states?
5. Would you vote FOR a bill that allowed churches to decide whether congregants may carry a concealed weapon – and if so, who may carry them? Currently, the law specifically forbids concealed carry in churches.
6. Would you vote FOR an employer parking lot bill that would protect workers with an Arkansas CHCL from being fired for having a legally possessed firearm in their vehicles, for the purpose of defending his or herself coming to/from work?
7. In a written opinion, the Arkansas State Attorney General said our current journey law needs to be defined. Would you vote FOR a bill that defined a “journey” under Arkansas gun law as leaving one’s “voting precinct”?
