Re: 2017 Legislative Priorities

We need to cleanup and strengthen the prohibition against local governments posting unlawful 30.06 and 30.07. Too many cities are skirting the law by pointing the finger at private entities and then claiming exemption under the AG opinion. The law needs to be explicit that any government- or publicly-owned property is exempt from 30.06 and 30.07 and that anyone who posts or enforces such a sign will be held personally liable.

As license-holders, we bear all the risk in these situations. How many times have we seen a 30.06 sign we knew to be invalid but still left our gun in the car because security was wanding, and we knew we'd never win that argument. We know we're right, but we're also afraid of a beat-the-rap-but-not-the-ride type of situation. We need to hold employees and security responsible for their actions. They need to know that if they unlawfully turn away a license-holder, they will face a fine. This way they are assuming risk and are thus incentivized to follow the law.
