On Feb. 21, HB429 was introduced to protect the 2nd Amendment from federal usurpation in Kentucky. (learn more about it here) It was promptly referred to the Judiciary Committee where it will need to pass through a majority before it can be voted on by the whole house.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! It doesn’t matter where in Kentucky you live, ACT NOW!

1. Call the Committee Chair, John Tilley. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move this important bill forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.

2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on HB429. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they’re undecided, let them know you’ll call back in a few days.
