HB 1911 and HB 1927 would allow law-abiding citizens to carry a handgun without a state-issued License To Carry (LTC), and the current LTC law would not be repealed under these measures. Criminals who are prohibited from possessing firearms would still be barred from carrying guns.
The committee also voted out HB 918, which lowers the age eligibility requirement for an LTC to 18 for, and extends this option to, a person who has obtained an active family violence protective order or magistrate’s order of emergency protection. HB 1407 would allow a LTC holder to have a handgun in his or her vehicle that is visible and in a holster but not on the person.
All of these measures will head to the Calendars Committee, which will consider whether or not they will receive a House floor vote.
