Yesterday, April 20, Senate Bill 199 was voted out of the Senate Civil Justice Committee by an 8-3 vote. SB 199 will now go to the Senate floor and may come to a vote as early as next week. Please contact you state Senator and urge them to vote in favor of SB 199. Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator!
SB 199, sponsored by Senator Joe Uecker (R-14), would exempt active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces from the concealed carry permit license requirements. The bill would make several important changes in the Concealed Handgun Law regarding a person who is an active duty member of the U.S. armed forces and is carrying a valid military identification card and a certificate issued by the person's applicable service branch indicating that the person has successfully completed small arms qualification (qualifying member of the military).
