Several Pro-Second Amendment bills will be considered by the House Judiciary Committee this coming Tuesday, March 10.
House Bill 2727, the NRA-backed Concealed Handgun License confidentiality bill sponsored by State Representatives Kim Thatcher (R-25) and Jeff Barker (D-28), would keep records on Concealed Handgun Licensees (CHL’s) private and prevent newspapers and other media outlets from publishing information about permit holders.
House Bill 2644, introduced by State Representatives Wayne Krieger (R-1) and Arnie Roblan (D-9), would exempt Conceal Handgun License holders from mandatory background check requirements when purchasing any firearm.
House Bill 2645, also sponsored by Representatives Krieger and Roblan, would require the State Police to destroy records of approved firearm purchases within 24 hours, preventing any registration of lawful gun buyers.
