Bloomberg Takes Aim at Self-Defense Bill in Mississippi

Billionaire gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun grassroots group Everytown for Gun Safety have launched an attack on House Bill 786, a pro-self-defense bill that overwhelmingly passed the Mississippi House and is on its way to the State Senate.

  It’s up to YOU to let your elected officials know that he doesn’t represent Mississippi values when it comes to your right to protect yourself and your family.

NRA-ILA had previously reported on House Bill 786, sponsored by state Representative Andy Gipson (R-Braxton), which was approved by state Representatives last week by a convincing 86-32 vote.  The bill accomplishes two things: (1) it allows church authorities to develop security programs that designate enhanced carry permit holders or those with military or law enforcement backgrounds to protect places of worship and ensures that these participants receive the benefits of existing protections under the state’s Castle Doctrine law; and (2) it clarifies current permitless carry options for law-abiding citizens while maintaining the existing enhanced and regular concealed carry permitting systems.
