On Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted in favor of three important self-defense bills. House Bill 2389, sponsored by State Representative John Kavanagh (R-8), would allow a person to carry a firearm in a vehicle so long as it is kept in a locked compartment. House Bill 2629, introduced by State Representative Russell Pearce (R-18), clarifies how and when a firearm may be displayed for defensive purposes. Finally, House Bill 2630, also introduced by State Representative Russell Pearce (R-18), would reduce the penalty for carrying a concealed “weapon” without a concealed carry permit to a petty offense. All three of these bills are now headed to the Senate floor, but have not been given a hearing date at this time.
