Debate unfolds: Rep. Walsh takes stand against bill targeting firearm owners, HB 1903


During recent House floor debate, Rep. Jim Walsh, R-Aberdeen, offered an amendment to HB 1903, a bill that would hold firearm owners liable in the event of a crime. The proposed legislation mandates that victims of firearm loss or theft report the incident to local law enforcement within 24 hours or face a $1,000 fine. Walsh vehemently denounces this as government overreach, condemning the measure for unfairly criminalizing law-abiding citizens.
