Yesterday’s hearing for House Bill 231 was a success! Multiple organizations, students, religious leaders, teachers, and concerned citizens showed up and let their voices be heard.
House Bill 231 would open the door for people to carry concealed weapons in places like churches, day care centers, schools, government buildings, and other places where they are now prohibited. Allowing people to carry a concealed weapon diminishes our right to be free from gun violence.
From this point, the bill could either die in committee (meaning not get another hearing for a vote) or it could receive another hearing, where more testimony will be permitted and possibly voted on by the committee members.
