Gun Show Promoter Tax on Senate Courts Docket

Senator Ken Stolle's SB 1385 is on the docket this morning in Senate Courts. This is the bill that requires the gun show promoters to arrange and pay for a law-enforcement officer from the Department of State Police to be present at all times during a firearms show. The bill also allows the Superintendent of State Police to enter into agreements with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that would federalize state police troopers at gun shows by granting federal law-enforcement authority for the purposes of enforcing firearms laws of the United States. If it is reported out this morning it will hit the floor immediately because crossover day is tomorrow.
