This Wednesday, February 16, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear Senate Bill 126 at 8:00 a.m. in Room 249. This legislation would streamline the Conceal Carry Weapons (CCW) permit process by allowing an applicant to qualify for a permit for both revolvers and semiautomatic firearms. To allow for greater participation, this hearing will be teleconferenced to Room 4412 of the
Under existing law, a person applying for a permit to carry a firearm concealed is required to list on the application each specific semiautomatic firearm to which the permit will pertain, but may receive a permit for all revolvers owned by the person without listing each revolver specifically. Sponsored by state Senator James Settelmeyer (R-Capital), SB 126 would revise this provision to allow a person to complete one application and obtain one permit to carry in concealment all firearms owned by the person. The application must specify whether it pertains to revolvers, semiautomatic firearms or both, and the applicant must demonstrate competence with each category of firearm, as applicable.
Please attend this hearing, either at the Capitol or in
