Good bills for a change! (Don’t worry, a bunch of fresh bad ones are out there)

SB2788 by Todd (R)

As introduced, allows law enforcement officers, whether on-duty or off-duty, retired law enforcement officers, active duty and retired members of the armed forces of the United States, whether in discharge of official duties or not, and enhanced handgun carry permit holders, except in certain circumstances, to possess or carry, whether openly or concealed, with or without the intent to go armed, a handgun in any Pre-K-12 public school building or bus, school campus, grounds, recreation area, athletic field, or any other property owned, operated, or while in use by any public board of education or Pre-K-12 school.

Hello Campus Carry. And gets rid of the annoying Schrödinger GFZ of people suddenly illegally carrying in public places just because a school bus suddenly and unannounced dropped a bunch of kids for a field day.

SB2763 by Bowling (R)

 As introduced, preempts the entire field of legislation regarding extreme risk protection orders to the exclusion of all county, city, town, municipality, or metropolitan government law, ordinances, resolutions, enactments, or regulation; declares a federal statute, rule, executive order, or a federal judicial order that has the effect of enforcing an extreme risk protection order to be null and void; creates a Class A misdemeanor offense of attempting to enforce a federally implemented extreme risk protection order. –

In the past, State’s preemption has proven to be one of the most effective ways to eliminate the hodgepodge or multiple laws and regulations for multiple jurisdictions which leads to the self-censuring and self-restriction of Rights.  And it is easier to choke bad laws at one location that waste time and resources on multiple fronts.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. I’d call that first one “School Carry” and not “Campus Carry “. Campus Carry implies colleges and universities, and that bill specifies Pre-K-12 school grounds and facilities.
    Still, a great step in the right direction!
    The second bill brings all ERPOs — including federal ones — under state preemption, declares them unenforceable, and gives it teeth? Am I reading that right?

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
