HB 89 Passes the Senate Judiciary Committee

The Senate Judiciary Committee passed HB 89 today by a vote of 6 to 4 over some rather stiff opposition from groups that mostly demonstrated at the hearing that they had no real understanding of what HB 89 will do.  HB 89 nows goes to the Senate Rules Committee, where GCO expects it to be set for a floor vote.  When that happens, GCO expects that there are enough votes to pass it (although GCO will not rest on its laurels).  The board wishes to extend a special thanks to the GCO members who made the inconvenient trip to the Capitol on a weekday to show up and support this bill.  Thanks also to those who have been contacting their Senators and urging them to support HB 89.

HB 89 will prevent the arrest and prosecution of persons who are eligible for a firearms license and choose to conceal or partially conceal their firearm while riding in an automobile.
