I’m listening in this morning to the measures backed by the National Rifle Association as they’re being heard in Senate Judiciary this morning, after they both successfully moved through the House of Representatives.
HB 1096, An act to revise certain procedures for issuing a permit to carry a concealed pistol and
HB 1116, an act to repeal and revise certain provisions relating to the requirements for a permit to carry a concealed pistol taken together would drastically alter laws on how concealed weapons are carried in the state, both in terms of the nature of background checks and how concealed weapons are carried and stored in the state.
House Bill 1116 was opposed by the Administration in the House.
….. And it looks like both of them were sent to the 41st day by committee members.
How did House Bill 1096 fare?
HB 1096, Senate Judiciary, Deferred to the 41st legislative day
And House Bill 1116 fared about as well, except on this measure, Mike Vehle appeared long enough to speak against, and then leave….
