Thankful to be in the Arkansas Capitol on a Leadership Fayetteville trip. Because of this trip, I realized that another gun bill had been presented. Unfortunately, I had been a bit out of touch and had not been aware of this bill. Once I looked into the bill, I realized that there had been lots of coverage.

When the bill was introduced another Arkansas representatives responses made this bill a national viral issue. It is surprising to me that Ballinger feels justified to have submitted this bill. I do hope that the majority of our representatives and our citizens are against this kind of gun legislation. See links below to follow Arkansas Legislations and some of the coverage about #HB1694.
