Committee Hearings: Week of 3/15

We need you to help stop gun control and defend your rights!

This week’s hearings include several small pro-gun bills that clarify certain issues — and several very dangerous anti-gun bills. A committee hearing is a personal invitation to you to show up and give your opinion to the legislature — and it’s a critical opportunity to give input to the committee that has all the power to kill bills or move them forward.

Here are three ways that you can help at the committee stage:

  1. Attend a hearing and testify for or against the bills. You will be able to speak for 2-3 minutes per bill to give your position and opinion to the committee members. If you plan to attend, text Felisha at 832-622-8781 so we can know to expect you. See details for each hearing below.
  2. Call the committee chair and members and tell them to SUPPORT and VOTE IN FAVOR of the good bills — and OPPOSE and VOTE AGAINST the bad bills. Committee member information is listed below.
  3. Submit a written statement for or against each bill. Your statement will be posted publicly, and it’s critical to show strong numbers in support of gun rights (and against gun control). Use the links below for the forms to submit your statement.
