BILLS PROTECTING SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS HEADS
TO GOVERNOR’S DESK
JACKSON – Legislation lowering fees on concealed carry permits and recognizing military service for firearm training passed the Senate, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said today. The legislation is part of his legislative agenda.
The bills head to Gov. Phil Bryant for consideration.
“These bills further protect our ability to carry concealed weapons and ensure that the state doesn’t overcharge for that right,” Lt. Gov. Reeves said. “I appreciate the help and support of the National Rifle Association to get these agenda items to the Governor’s desk.”
Senate Bill 2394 reduces the fee on concealed carry permits, clarifies that such permits are not needed to carry a non-holstered pistol or revolver in fully enclosed case, such as a purse or briefcase, and establishes a certain classification for honorably retired law enforcement officers.
