HB 270, introduced by State Representatives Mark Hilton (R-96), Fred Steen (R-76), Justin Burr (R-67), and George Cleveland (R-14), has been deferred to sub-committee for further discussion. HB 270 would eliminate the prohibition on Right-to-Carry permit holders carrying their lawfully concealed firearms into a restaurant that serves alcohol. NRA testified in support of this measure, and we will work to ensure it is reconsidered by the full committee.
HB 269, introduced by Representatives Mark Hilton (R-96), Justin Burr (R-67), George Cleveland (R-3), and Jim Gulley (R-103), has been held over due to drafting issues. If enacted, HB 269 is intended to allow those with Right-to-Carry permits to carry their firearms in state parks. This bill will likely be heard again once the drafting issues are resolved.
