That's not what HB913 does. The latest version (passed out of Senate committee) bans "improvised explosive devices".
Whoops! I'm completely messed up here! That was supposed to be HB 1819 which was already sent to the governor. I'll fix my post above.

The session isn't over yet. There are still a few other bills that will benefit firearms owners/LTCs that are still being worked on.
From what I hear, every gun bill that hasn't finished going through the process is pretty much dead.
That is quite possible, however, the following bills still have a chance (from my reading, more-so in the Senate than the House:
HB 14 - State Mental Hospital Clarification - Placed on Senate Intent Calendar
HB 1819 - De-regulation of Suppressors, other non-NFA items - Sent to Governor 5/22
HB 1935 - "Location Restricted Knife" - On Senate Local and Consent Calendar - not a gun bill but still a reduction in restrictions on weapons

SB 263 - LTC Qualification Caliber - On House Local and Consent Calendar
SB 2605 - Place of Worship Volunteer Security by way of amendment - Read second time yesterday, just needs 3rd reading and Senate Concurrence.

Still a lot of time left for things to go wrong, I agree and none of these are major bills, but they do improve some things for LTC holders, those who will qualify for them or other aspects of weapon/firearm ownership.

UPDATE - SB 2605 passed the House.
UPDATE - Did not mean to have HB 913 - should have been HB 1819 which was sent to the governor on 5/22
