Here Comes The Flood Of New Gun Legislation - Updated Post #7

This time of the year is insane for us, the laws roll in almost as fast as we can check them and it normally doesn't get better until some time in February.

There's no way I can list all the laws in their own thread and to be honest it would be pretty rude to try and do it so I will hit the 'highlights' of what has come in some far this year.

I wont link to them all either as that would be rude too you can find all of these under the Proposed State Legislation menu item on the site by clicking on the appropriate state name. BTW, we are also testing out a new 'thumbs up or down' rating system on the site.

These are not in any order BTW, sorry!

Virginia:

HB535 would require background checks at gun shows by any vendor.

SB279 would provide an exception for concealed handgun permits for 'qualifying retired member of the enforcement division of the Department of Motor Vehicles'

SB287 would make it a class 6 felony to transfer a firearm to a person that is prohibited if the seller does not peform a background check.

HB448 creates a means of reporting to the state police when a felon's firearm rights are restored.

SB520 would make it a class 2 felony for anyone that 'is not a licensed dealer to sell, rent, trade, or transfer a firearm to any other person who is not a licensed dealer.'

HB878 requires LEO to certify NFA applications within 15 days provided the applying person is not prohibited.

Oklahoma: SB1264, SB1266, HB2351

Take the time to read HB2351 - they should call this bill the 'taking stupidity out of schools' bill

Missouri bill SB656 removes the language that requires firing a revolver and semiautomatic pistol for live fire requirements for a concealed carry license. The AND would be replaced by either.

Florida

H0523 allows tax collectors to issue concealed permits, while H0525 makes ALL concealed weapons application information confidential.

Indiana

SB0045 would add a mandatory 8 hours of training for anyone applying for a license to carry after December 31, 2014

SB0169 sets penalties for anyone 'to provide an individual with a firearm if the person knows or has reason to believe that the individual: (1) is legally barred from possessing a firearm due to the commission of a crime; or (2) intends to use the firearm to commit a crime.'

HB1018 sets up preemption laws for firearms carried on state property.

HB1017 would provide immunity from civil liability for damages 'if the other person's use of force was a valid exercise of the other person's right to self-defense.'

Colorado

HB1041 appears to allow anyone over 21 to carry a concealed weapon without a permit as long as they follow the same guidelines and restrictions a permit holder would and they are not prohibited.

SB038 would eliminate the governor's ability to 'restrict the distribution of firearms during a state of emergency.

New Mexico

HB44 has been introduced, requiring background checks on all firearms sold at gun shows except 'relics' (C&R firearms)

Missouri

SB491,SB613, HB1164, SB548, HB1129, SB556.

Most notable (bad) is SB556 which requires reporting of lost or stolen firearms ... the language in 319.515 'owner should have been aware' is dangerous at best.

On the positive side HB1164 would drop the minimum age for a carry permit from 21 to 19

SB549 attempts to set up rules for 'failing to stop illegal possession'

SB565 is the old 'lost and stolen' and again contains language such as 'should have know' in relation to a lost or stolen firearm.


Mississippi

HB64 would allow school districts to appoint certain employees authorization to carry concealed weapons on campus.

HB139 would prohibit cities and municipalities from running gun buy back programs.

West Virginia

SB199 outlines the right of private property owners to prohibit carrying of firearms on their property.

SB298 clarifies the distinction between hunters and shooters in the field. It would allow shooters who are in possession of a firearm in or near the woods to not have to possess a valid hunting license.

SB80 changes the laws about carrying a weapon on the capitol complex.

There are of course more but those are the highlights. At this point we are pulling close to 100 new gun law bills a day so make sure to check back often.

Washington State

I-591: Bill would forbid seizure of firearms "without due process" during state of emergency. It would also require that the state follows national standards with reard to background checks. Essentially a one-page counter-bill to the 15 pages of the I-594.

I-594: Bill would require background checks for all transfers and require that they be completed by an FFL. I beleive there are some storage regs thrown in too, see the thread about it for more details...oh, and Bill Gates just tossed in $25k

How can MO lower the age for a pistol to 19?

By Federal law it's age 21 to buy one. This is an implicity "ok" for private sales, I'd say? Doesn't seem likely to be passed.

These aren't "laws" yet. They are bills or initiatives. Basically just proposals.

Some good, some bad. Love how UBC is basically being tried at the state level. It's interesting how these laws require a background check, is there a stated degree/type of background check necessary. Could I just use any program off the internet promising a background check?

New Friday January 10

New York

S06268: Not like we didn't know this but NY has officially lost their mind with the introduction of this bill, coded ammunition and a database to track it.

Indiana

SB0229 would prohibit local governments from holding gun buyback programs and would stop firearms bought in any such way from being destroyed unless the serial number is missing.

Virginia

HB827 sets up new language on permit holders and temporary firearms restrictions.

HB8812 requires all firearm transfers to go through a background check.

HB992 adds section 1 (E) to §15.2-915:

'Nothing in this section shall prohibit a locality from adopting an ordinance that prohibits firearms, ammunition, or components, or a combination thereof, in libraries owned or operated by the locality.'

HB823 would require state police to be at every gun show set up to do background checks but conflicts with HB812 (see below) in that background checks would be voluntary.

HB1015 adds language to §18.2-119 specifying that 'no firearms allowed' signs must be 'where they may reasonably be seen at all entrances to the building or to the part of the building to which the restriction applies, (ii) state the nature of the prohibition in conspicuous type, and (iii) have dimensions of at least five inches by seven inches.'

HB809 would outlaw the sale or transfer of any magazine capable of holding more than 20 rounds.

HB786 adds language to §22.1-307 regarding the dismissal of teachers or school officials, adding section b that states they may not be dismissed solely on the grounds they had an unloaded firearm or knife in their vehicle.

Oklahoma

SB1240 changes the language of 21 O.S. 2011, Sections 1902, 1903 and 1904 to allow those legal to carry a handgun to carry on public transportation.

And the bills keep rolling in:

No text yet but US SB1908 looks like another attempt at national reciprocity ... what is odd is it coming from the senate and not the house.

Proposed Mississippi SB2030 requires all ammunition sold within the state to 'bear a unique identifying mark' - UGH

Mississippi SB2100 would make honorably discharged vets exempt from training for a concealed carry permit.

West Virginia HB2911 would make all records pertaining to 'the issuance, renewal, expiration, suspension or revocation of a license to carry a concealed weapon' exempt from the freedom of information act.

West Virginia SB317 strikes language from current law that prohibits county commissioners from limiting 'the right of any person to purchase, possess, transfer, own, carry, transport, sell or store any revolver, pistol, rifle or shotgun or any ammunition or ammunition components'

In other words gutting preemption.

Oklahoma SB1344 would add in language to 21 O.S. 2011, Section 1289.6 making it illegal for police to disarm and restrain anyone carrying on property they own, rent, lease or legally control.

Florida H0577 creates more 'gun free zones' by adding in 'hospital, mental health facility, or nursing home'

Mississippi HB179 adds in language that removes immunity from their existing castle doctrine for anyone that kills an aggressor outside of their home and also adds in language requiring drug and alcohol testing for anyone that falls under the existing exemption.

Oklahoma SB1408 would add a new section to Section 199.1 of Title 60 stating that NFA gun trusts are valid in the state

Remember the link to the main state legislation page is in post 1

Thanks for keeping us updated. We need to be ever vigilant. In a world where information is transferred instantly via internet there's no reason we should allow any anti-freedom Bill to be put through without our voiced opposition.

NJ seems nuts to have so many bills on top of their already crazy infringements. You would think that a certain governor with potus aspirations would freeze that silliness with a commitment to veto all of the anti bills just to prove he is not just a democrat, stuffed in a turkey, wrapped in several pizzas, deep fried, and sprinkled with sugar just to look like a republican that is not opposed to the 2nd ammendment. At least Tennessee has all positive bills introduced.

Mississippi Governor response to anti-2A bills:

Gov. Phil Bryant Comments on Proposed Anti-Gun Legislation

JACKSON—“Any bills that attempt to track ammunition, seize weapons or otherwise infringe upon the right of Mississippians to keep and bear arms are a frontal assault on the Second Amendment. I will not stand by and allow gun owner rights to be trampled in this state, and I will immediately veto such bills if they reach my desk.”


http://www.governorbryant.com/gov-ph...n-legislation/

And lots of reps saying the anti-2A bills probably won't leave committees. Not a 100% guarantee but makes me feel a little better about it.

Thanks OP for the post.

I hope everybody keeps in mind that that the ludicrous anti-constitutional gun laws in New Jersey, and the proposed gun control bills, are being allowed to exist by an alleged Conservative Republican Governor who wants to run for President Of The United States.

Just my .02,

Now for the unveiling. This is just a summary of what will be in the bill that I initiated on behalf of KSRA and that Representative Jim Howell has sponsored for us. Jim and I both have worked tirelessly for weeks and weeks to make this bill as clean and comprehensive as possible. We will probably have a bill number on Tuesday as Jim introduced it in committee today.
1. Prohibits any city or county from expending funds derived from the proceeds of implementing, administering or operating a firearms buyback program.

2. Preempts any and all local control of firearms and ammunition. No city or county or agent of such will be able to adopt any ordinance, resolution or regulation or take any administrative action governing the purchase, transfer, ownership, storage, carrying on one’s person or transporting firearms or ammunition or any component or combination thereof.

3. No city or county or agent of such will be able to adopt any ordinance, resolution or regulation relating to the sale of a firearm by an individual who holds a federal firearms license that is more restrictive than any ordinance or regulation relating to the sale of any other commercial good.

4. Clarifies that no municipality can enact any ordinance, resolution, regulation or tax relating to the transportation, possession, carrying, sale, transfer, purchase, gift, devise, licensing, registration or use of a knife or knife making components. Nullifies all existing past ordinances and prohibits future ones.

5. Prohibits the destruction of seized firearms once they are no longer needed as evidence. They may be traded with other departments and KBI, sold or traded to licensed firearms dealers, used for testing or comparison by the forensics laboratory or given to the Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism for use in Hunter Education programs. Payments for transfers will be credited to the asset seizure and forfeiture fund of the seizing agency.

6. If a weapon is seized from an individual and they are not convicted or adjudicated as a juvenile it shall be verified it is not stolen and upon verification returned to the individual from whom it was seized within 30 days.

7. Contains some cleanup language from the Public Building Security Act, Senate Sub for HB 2052, passed in 2013. (Page 11 & 13). Better defines “Municipal Buildings” and clarifies that does not include buildings leased to a private entity.

8. Cleans up the Knife Act from 2013 providing intended prohibition of enforcement of local ordinances passed prior to July 1, 2013 and addresses possession of knives by convicted felons.

9. Cleans up language/terminology usage which created a conflict according to an Attorney General Opinion issued in January 2014.

10. Prohibits municipalities from requiring disclosure or making a record of concealed carry permits. If a need is felt due to certain circumstances, the police are to be called to handle it.

Seeing how pro law-abiding citizen Kansas is, I'm sure we'll see these pass

"As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow-citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms."
— Tench Coxe (1755–1824), writing as "A Pennsylvanian," in "Remarks On The First Part Of The Amendments To The Federal Constitution," in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789, p. 2 col. 1
