GUNS

  • “1/2 step forward”
    • Decriminalizes open carry of a handgun – as long as you have a permission slip (CWP)
  • “2 steps back”
    • Gives local governments authority to restrict your gun rights at public events
    • Drastically expands the amount of information that the state reports to the FBI gun database

*After immense pressure from his bosses (you) back home, Pope dropped his co-sponsorship

What does the bill do?
