More Firearms Bills Prefiled

Two additional bills have been prefiled at the General Assembly:

HB 171 Firearms in locked vehicles; immunity from liability. This bill provides that no person, property owner, tenant, employer, or business owner may prohibit a person who lawfully possesses a firearm from storing that firearm in a locked motor vehicle. The bill provides civil immunity for such persons, property owners, tenants, employers, or business owners. The provisions of the bill would not apply to possession of firearms on school property, nor would the provisions apply to vehicles owned or leased by an employer or business and used by an employee in the course of his employment

SB 79 Concealed handgun permit applications; removes option for requiring fingerprints. The title of this bill is self explanatory.
