As an attorney, a self-indulgence of mine is to read the house bills being proposed. A while ago I came across House Bill 76. This Bill was released by John Mathis and drafted by Esther Chelsea-McCarty. This law essentially would allow individuals to possess a weapon, concealed or not, as if they had the concealed-gun permit. I found this particularly interesting in the wake of the federal government’s move in the opposite direction.
The law does not allow for weapons to be carried onto schools or otherwise gun-prohibited zones. The bill was enrolled and presented to the governor for signing. On March 22, he vetoed the Bill.
