Repeal of Restaurant Ban Reported Out of Senate Courts

Senate Courts of Justice has reported SB 334 on an 8-7 vote. More updates will be coming as the committee takes up the other firearm related bills but this is good news. We have cleared the first hurdle in finally repealing this ridiculous rule banning the carrying of concealed firearms in restaurants like Applebees and Olive Garden that serve alcohol along with food. It has never made sense to me that we could openly carry a firearm in such establishments but could not carry concealed. We still have to pass the bill through the full Senate but gun owners are one step closer to winning this great victory.
