Please Contact State Senator Powell to Thank Him Today!
This week, Governor Haley Barbour signed Senate Bill 2411, an NRA-supported right-to-carry reform measure sponsored by State Senator Eric Powell (D). SB 2411extends the term of right-to-carry permits from 4 to 5 years and reduces permit renewal fees for senior citizens by 50 percent (from $50 to $25). The bill also calls 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.
