Dear MSSA Friends,
The Senate and House have rejected the Governor’s gutting amendments to MSSA’s Restaurant Carry bill, HB 494. It now goes back to Governor Bullock for his reconsideration in the form in which it originally landed on his desk.
HB 494 would allow a person with a CWP to exercise that CWP in an establishment that may have a liquor license but for which the main business is food. It leaves in place an existing law making it illegal to carry concealed when intoxicated.
Please contact Governor Bullock (“Steve Bullock” <firstname.lastname@example.org> or 444-3111) immediately and ask him to sign HB 494 (or allow it to become law without his signature). Ask all of your friends and fellow gun club members to contact him too.
Remember, be polite and brief.
