Default March 2nd Deadline

Urgent: Right-to-Carry Reform Legislation Needs Your Help in Mississippi!

Please Contact Your State Representative!

You may have read about the new federal law that took effect February 22 that allows concealed carry permit holders to carry firearms for protection in national parks and wildlife refuges. However, this important change will not take effect in Mississippi because state law currently prohibits the possession of firearms in parks and the new federal law would not preempt any state ban.

The Mississippi Senate recently passed Senate Bill 2153, an NRA-supported bill repealing the prohibition on permit holders carrying in parks -- so that the new federal law would apply in Mississippi -- and rolling back many other restrictions on where permit holders can lawfully carry, including private businesses such as restaurants and public buildings that have court rooms and other government offices. However, this important legislation remains stuck in the House Judiciary B Committee.

The deadline for the committee to act on this bill is Tuesday, March 2.

It is critical that you contact your State Representative and respectfully urge him or her to support this important legislation. Please ask them to urge the House Speaker Billy McCoy and House Judiciary B Committee Chairman Willie Bailey to allow the house to vote on this critical bill.
