One bill, Senate Bill 239, would allow permit holders to carry concealed guns in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. It also would loosen restrictions on how guns must be carried in vehicles.

The other, Senate Bill 247, would allow people with certain misdemeanor drug convictions to carry guns.
