The 2013 legislative session is underway and several pro-gun bills have been introduced.
House Bill 205, sponsored by state Representative Krayton Kerns (R-58), would legalize the use of suppressors for all hunting. HB 205 has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee. For more information on firearms and suppressors, click here.
House Bill 223, sponsored by state Representative Mike Miller (R-84), would exempt non-profit shooting ranges from property tax. HB 223 has been referred to the House Taxation Committee. House Bill 240, sponsored by state Representative Cary Smith (R-55), is known as the “Higher Education Rights Restoration Act.” Among other constitutional protections, this bill would limit the authority of the Board of Regents and University System to regulate firearms. HB 240 has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee. Senate Bill 145, sponsored by state Senator Frederick Moore (R-20), is a much-needed bill which would make all information relating to concealed weapon permit (CWP) holders confidential. The bill was heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, but has not yet been voted on. Please contact committee members and respectfully request that they support SB 145. Contact information for the Senate Judiciary Committee can be found below. Additionally, these pro-gun bills are currently in the drafting process: - LC 1042 will allow for permitless carry within city limits. - LC 1041 will create a prohibited places exemption for CWP holders.
The NRA will continue to keep you apprised of new legislation as well as the advancement of current bills.
