BILLS BEING HEARD
___________________________


Oppose: H.B. No. 5408 AN ACT CONCERNING THE PRESENTATION OF A CARRY PERMIT.
To require the holder of a permit for the carrying of any pistol or revolver to present such permit upon request of a law enforcement officer.

This bill (if it becomes Law) would remove the requirement for a person to be under ‘suspicion of a crime’ and compel individuals produce a permit to carry firearms upon request. Currently, a sworn officer needs reasonable suspicion of a crime being committed in order to request a permit to be produced. This is similar to the need for reasonable suspicion to pull an automobile over.

Support: H.B. No. 5409 AN ACT CONCERNING APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR A TEMPORARY STATE PERMIT TO CARRY A PISTOL OR A REVOLVER.
To create uniform criteria for the issuance of a temporary state permit to carry a pistol or revolver.

This bill (if it becomes Law) would remove the ability for local issuing authorities to ask for additional information beyond what is already required by state Statute (29-28). This would mean that applicants in every municipality would have the same standard for requirements  when applying for a permit to carry firearms.
 

No Position: S.B. No. 20 AN ACT CONCERNING CARRYING A FIREARM WHILE INTOXICATED OR UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL.
To lower the alcohol in blood ratio from .100 to .080

This bill (if it becomes Law) would lower the blood alcohol level to .08; the same as it is for drunk driving.
