Go To Airport… Become a Felon

As we warned, SB 554 is now scheduled for a hearing on Feb 22.

This bill will make you a felon if you travel near an airport and have a firearm, even if you are a concealed handgun license holder.

There are no exceptions and you do NOT have to enter the terminal or even leave your car.

If you pick up a friend or family member and just drive near the terminal or parking lots you can be sent to prison.

But wait, there’s more. The bill will also make you a felon if you go near any loosely defined “public building” that has declared itself a self defense free zone.

We are not making this up.  The bill also doubles the cost of a concealed handgun license, but you really won’t need one if this bill passes because it won’t be good in too many places.

The shortcomings of the “new and improved” remote hearing system means that there will be very tight limits on who gets to testify. So it is essential that you sign up as soon as possible to express your opposition to this insanity. Now would be a good time.

Public testimony will be limited to 3 minutes per person. The committee will hear testimony at its regular scheduled time from 8:00 am to 9:45 am, then recess until 5:30 pm and continue to hear testimony until 7:30 pm.

Registration is required to testify by phone or video link.  To sign up, either use the online form at: https://survey.sjc1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3xajjlV800PXp5k OR register by calling 833-588-4500.

Note, they do not answer this phone after 5pm.

You may submit written testimony here:

Registration closes at the time the meeting is scheduled to begin.

You should, but may not, receive a confirmation email. If you do not, please contact the committee assistant.

Do not wait to do this.  The gun grabbers will be working overtime to take the limited number of slots available for oral testimony.

And please, reach out to the Republican leaders and let them know how important it is that they stop this attack.

Remind them that you really won’t be able to vote for them if you are in prison. (Unless of course the Democrats are successful in their attempts to let felons vote from prison. Yes, they are trying to do that too.)
