The PUBLIC SAFETY AND SECURITY committee has a JF ( Joint Favorable) deadline tomorrow Thursday, March 9. All bills not considered tomorrow will be effectively DEAD. If ALL current gun bills in PS Comm were to die it would suit our needs - positive bills can be addressed later. Contact PS Comm members TODAY!
Raised S.B. No. 304 AN ACT CONCERNING COLORED HANDGUNS. Public Safety and Security Committee. To ban the possession, manufacture or sale of handguns that are coated with various colors. OPPOSE. Public Hearing 02/28. CCS Testimony. This bill is a Chiefs of Police bill which in our opinion MAKES NO SENSE and has no documentation of any problem.
Raised S.B. No. 307 AN ACT CONCERNING TEMPORARY STATE PISTOL PERMITS. Public Safety and Security Committee. To require specific information in pistol permit applications. Public Hearing 02/28 This bill was opposed by the Chiefs because it standardizes local Permit Application requirements.
