Pro-gun Bills Reported Out of Senate Courts of Justice Today

The Senate Courts of Justice Committee reported out two pro-gun bills today. SB 476 (Hanger) and SB436 (Vogel) were reported out of committee with bipartisan support. SB476 repeals the ban on carrying concealed handguns in restaurants that serve alcohol. SB 436 creates a new exemption to the general prohibition against carrying concealed weapons by allowing a person who may lawfully possess a firearm to carry a handgun in a private motor vehicle or boat if the handgun is locked in a container or compartment.

SB 476 was reported by a 9-4 margin and SB 436 was reported by a 10-4 margin.
