Concealed carry is getting a lot of play in the legislative session that's going on right now.

The first bill would allow off duty LEOs and concealed handgun permit holders to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol. Bars would still be off limits.

The second bill would allow for an option to get a lifetime permit. We currently pay $125 for 5 years, and this bill would allow you to purchase a lifetime permit for $500. You would have to renew your training every 5 years and of course if you are involved in a felony it's immediately reported to the state police and your permit is jerked.

I think both are worthy bills and hope they make it into law.
