SB 1122 was dropped on the last day of last month.
Licenses to Carry Concealed Weapons or FirearmsReducing the number of years that such licenses are valid; requiring that certain persons successfully demonstrate firearms proficiency through a specified course to obtain a license; providing course requirements, etc.
It drops the number of year the license is valid from 7 to 4 while the fee remaining the same. The bill now adds an order to “demonstrate proficiency safely handling and discharging a firearm” with a 50 shot course of fire and must get a passing grade of 70. Back to the Jim Crow laws requiring a demonstration of ability before being able to exercise a Constitutional Right. “Negro can’t read? Negro can’t vote.”
The bill has been introduced in the Judiciary Committee and that means we need to start pounding them. You know our new Agriculture Commissioner Nikki “Ganja” Fried is gonna come out in full support of his really bad bill.
I will remind you again Monday to call and write.
And other than Church Carry; we don’t have a pro-gun bill in the Legislature.
And we do have a shitload of bad ones. I’ll expand also on Monday.
