The following NRA-supported bills have been introduced in the 2004 Mississippi Legislature: HB 988 and SB 2623 create a specialized NRA license plate and send fees collected for the tags to the for NRA Foundation`s State Fund Account for Mississippi for hunter education programs, firearms safety courses, marksmanship training, and wildlife conservation. HB 989 and SB 2705 streamline Mississippi`s reciprocity law by requiring Mississippi to recognize carry permits from other states which, in turn, agree to recognize Mississippi permits. This would greatly expand the number of states where Mississippi permit holders could lawfully carry when traveling. Both House bills are sponsored by Representative Warner McBride (D-10). The Senate versions are sponsored by Senator Walter Michel (R-25). Please contact your State Representatives & State Senators and urge them to support these measures.
