Senate Bill 1402, which would amend existing law to revise provisions applicable to the issuance of a license to carry concealed firearms, was expected to be heard in the Senate Judiciary and Rules Committee at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1. However, this NRA-backed legislation has been pulled from the agenda and denied a public hearing!
It is critical that you take a moment to contact members of the committee and ask him or her to put this important legislation back on the agenda for tomorrow, March 1!
