Lifetime Concealed Handgun Permits Moves to Senate Finance Committee

Yesterday, the Senate Courts of Justice Committee reported SB 608, a bill to provide for Lifetime Concealed Handgun Permits was reported by a unanimous vote and rereferred to Senate Finance as it carries a fiscal impact to a state agency.  If passed and signed by the Governor, the bill would change the process for applying for a permit, changing it from the Clerk of the local circuit court to the State Police.  It would also require the State Police to run annual background checks on every permit holder to make sure there has been no change in the holder's legal status.  We will see if the State Police make the case that they cannot handle that requirement.
