On April 1, the Senate Judiciary passed out of committee Senate Bill 1332. Sponsored by Senator Harold Caskey (D-31), this bill authorizes all county sheriffs to pay the costs and expenses for activities related to the issuing of handgun carry permits from their revolving fund. This legislation will fix the Right-to-Carry funding problems outlined by the Supreme Court in its recent decision by allowing sheriffs in all counties to issue Right-to-Carry permits. Please continue to contact your State Senator, and respectfully urge him to support SB 1332. The main information number is (573) 751-3824. You can find further contact information for your Legislator by using the "Write Your Representatives" feature at www.NRAILA.org.
