Gun Bill Saturday - May 4th

#1

Post by Charles L. Cotton » Mon Apr 29, 2013 3:23 pm

Saturday, May 4th, is being dubbed "Gun Bill Saturday." The following gun bills will be debated on the House floor:

HB47 - Reduction of CHL class hours (SB864 will likely be substituted) - SUPPORT!
HB48 - Removes the requirement to take a renewal class to renew your CHL. - SUPPORT!
HB485 - Relating to the CHL fee for peace officers and military veterans - Neutral
HB508 - Creates large civil penalty for governmental entities posting unenforceable 30.06 signs. - SUPPORT!!
HB698 - Requires DPS to establish an alternative to digital fingerprints by L1 for people living more than 25 miles from L1 - Support.
HB801 - Requires Hunter Education Courses to include warnings about rounds leaving the property; also requires the posting of "School Nearby" signs. - OPPOSE.
HB972 - Comprehensive campus-carry. SUPPORT INCLUDING ALL PRO-GUN FLOOR AMENDMENRTS.
HB1009 - Creation of new "school marshal" program. The bill is too narrow and will prevent thousands of volunteers - OPPOSE.
HB1304 - Changes code from "failure to conceal" to intentionally "displays" a handgun; and corrects McDermott decision. SB299 will likely be substituted - SUPPORT!!!!
HB1421 - Creates an option to sell certain seized firearms rather than destroy those guns. Support
HB1349 - Prevents DPS from requiring the disclosure of social security number on CHL new or renewal applications. - Neutral.

Please call and/or fax your Representative and ask them to support HB 47, 48, 508, 698, 972, 1304, and 1421, including the Senate substitutes of SB864 for HB47 and SB299 for HB1304. Please ask them to oppose HB801 (too costly for no gain) and HB1009 (too restrictive). It's your call on the "neutral" bills.

Thanks,
Chas.

I just got an email from the NRA-ILA about SB 1907 being considered as early as tomorrow. I searched the forum and didn't see any posts on it. According to the NRA-ILA's summary it sounds like a positive one. Is this one we should include in our emails to our Senators?

Should we expect a vote on these bills on Saturday or just debate?

Yes! It's basically a version of the employer parking lot bill that protects students from being expelled.

OK, so it adds protections, I guess that's good. I'm wondering how it got in after the deadline? I'm also concerned that it is going to shine attention on the fact that we can bring guns onto the campus at all....


idk, maybe I'm just at the point right now I want to fly under the radar? it's been a long week

What happened to HB 700 that if passed allowed CHL holders the option to open carry?

Nothing, it is still in Committee without a vote. Someone reported that Rep. Lavender's website indicates HB700 will not get a committee vote.

So bottom line, no campus carry and no open carry, right? The campus carry bill HB972, just allows IHE's the option of allowing concealed carry on premises. I don't see that being any different than today. Very disappointed in this years legislature. A lot of good bills that we've been fighting for years, that will never see the light of day. :tiphat:

Not necessarily. Watch the floor debate.

I'm sure most poepole don;t just copy and paste their emails but just in case, there is a slight error in Chas original post......

Please call and/or fax your Representative and ask them to support HB 47, 48, 508, 698, 801, 972,

I'm guessing he meant to move 801 on the oppose line only. It's just listed in two places and I'd hate for someone to send their support for 801.
