This week, the State Senate agreed to accept the House amendments to Senate Bill 2411, an NRA-supported right-to-carry reform measure sponsored by State Senator Eric Powell (D) & State Representative Bubba Carpenter (R). SB 2411 still contains language extending the term of right-to-carry permits from 4 to 5 years and reduces permit renewal fees for senior citizens by 50 percent.
The House amendments called for an interim report on the feasibility of (1) allowing Mississippians to apply to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) for carry permits by mail; and (2) reducing the time-frame within which DPS must act on carry permit applications. Such a report will help NRA-ILA lay the groundwork for further improvements to Mississippi's Right-to-Carry law in the future. SB 2411 now moves to Governor Haley Barbour (R) for his expected signature.
