Two NRA-Backed Measures Advancing in Mississippi!

Friday, March 14, 2008

This week two important pro-gun bills were heard in committee and were reported out.  

The House Judiciary B Committee reported out Senate Bill 2411, an NRA-backed bill sponsored by State Senator Eric Powell (D-4) and State Representative Bubba Carpenter (R-1) that would require the Department of Public Safety to establish procedures by which applicants for Right-to-Carry permits may submit their paperwork by mail.  The bill has been amended during various stages of the legislative process to also grant senior citizens a 50% discount on renewal permits (originally a separate bill sponsored by State Senator Doug Davis-R-1); extend the term of validity for original and renewal permits from four to five years (offered by State Representative Bob Evans-D-91 in committee); and shorten the time-frame within which DPS must issue or deny a permit from 120 to 60 days (originally pushed as an amendment to a separate measure by State Representative Dirk Dedeaux-D-93).  The bill now moves to the House floor for consideration. 

Also, the Senate Municipalities Committee reported out House Bill 346, NRA-supported shooting range protection legislation sponsored by State Representative Warner McBride (D-10) and State Senator Walter Michel (R-25).  HB 346 would protect existing shooting ranges and allow them to make repairs or modifications to the existing building, expand range membership, and allow for participation opportunities in the community, etc., without the local government placing certain restrictions upon them.  The bill will be considered next by the Senate County Affairs Committee and then the full Senate.  

Please contact your State Representative and respectfully urge him or her to support SB 2411.  Also, please contact your State Senator and respectfully urge him or her to support HB 346.  To find contact information for your legislators please click here.
