Mississippi: NRA Members Score Major Victories During 2013 Legislative Session
Posted on April 5, 2013
In January, the state House of Representatives passed NRA-supported House Bill 485, sponsored by Representative Mark Baker (R-Brandon), by a 101 to 18 vote. This measure was then sent to the Senate where, under the leadership of Senator Briggs Hopson (R-Vicksburg) and his colleagues on the Senate Judiciary A Committee, it was approved by the state Senate by a 49 to 2 vote. Governor Phil Bryant (R) signed HB 485 into law today, and it took effect immediately.
