Mississippi: Bills Filed in Jackson to Reduce Concealed Carry Permit Fees

This week, state Senator Terry Burton (R) filed Senate Bill 2394, NRA-supported legislation to reduce fees for both new and renewed concealed carry permits to $80 and $40, respectively.  State Senator David Parker (R) also introduced a measure (Senate Bill 2226) to lower permit costs.

Application fees for Mississippi concealed carry permits are currently $100 for new permits and $50 for renewals.  While these fees are set in statute, the law also provides that the applicant shall be responsible for the cost of processing fingerprint cards.  This drives the actual cost of a permit up to $132 for new permits and $82 for renewals.  Individuals who are on fixed incomes may be priced out of this important personal protection option, especially when you factor in the cost of training to obtain the enhanced endorsement on a carry permit. 

Lt. Governor Tate Reeves (R) has made this a centerpiece of his legislative agenda for the 2015 session.  NRA strongly supports SB 2394 and applauds this effort to make self-defense more affordable for law-abiding Mississippians.  The measure has been referred to the Senate Accountability, Efficiency & Transparency Committee.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to monitor and report to you on its progress.  In the meantime, please contact your state Senators and state Representatives and politely urge them to support SB 2394.
