    Here Comes The Flood Of New Gun Legislation - Updated Post #21

    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.

    Per 790.601, all personal info is already confidential.

    Maybe I'm not getting the whole picture...but that sounds an awful lot like Colorado looking to become #6 of the constitutional carry states.

    Can't speak to other states, but there's a snowballs chance in H-E-double hockey sticks that anti-2ndA legislation gets passed in our 24-10 conservative dominated Senate, and our 113-50 House.
    Missouri is a G-U-N state. You need to dig a little deeper.

    SB491 - I find nothing relating to firearms in this bill. This is a crime bill creating new classes of felonies and misdemeanors but not relating to guns.

    SB613 - An antifederalist bill making clear that this state will not allow the Federal government to infringe on our 2nd Amendment Rights. It doesn't get any more pro 2ndA than this...READ IT: http://www.senate.mo.gov/14info/pdf-...ntro/SB613.pdf

    SB548 - Single sponsor by in inner city Senator that will go nowhere.

    SB556 - Same Senator, same outcome

    HB1129 - Changes the legal age to carry from 21 to 19, hardly "anti-gun", and coming from Chuck Gatschenberger, from Lake St. Louis, where progressives fear to tread...like those semi-rural, hobby farmers are going to elect ANYONE who would limit their liberties!

    HB1164 - The "Missouri Firearms Freedom Act" states that a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured in and possessed within state borders and stamped "Made in Missouri" is subject to NO federal regulation (we have some slamming guns being made here, including just about the ultimate precision AR (American Made Sporting And Competition Rifles | Rhino Arms)), and I'm sure they had a hand in this. Further, it allows first responders to carry without a permit. READ IT: http://house.mo.gov/billtracking/bil...df/HB1164I.pdf

    So, three of those are very pro 2ndA, one of them doesn't apply, and the other two will go nowhere at all.

    I'm not saying I completely agree with the bills that stick our finger in Uncle Sam's eye and tell him to go fornicate with himself, but I certainly like the sentiment!

    There are allot of states you have to worry about. This is NOT one of them. If anything our liberties are expanding!

    For the Virginia folks (my former home), these three are VERY DISTURBING!!!!!!

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

    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.

    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.'

    The third one essentially makes it illegal to do private sales / trades / gifts. A FELONY at that. I hope the Virginia contingency jumps all over this like stink on a monkey. I have a lot of friends and family up there and that would be hideous.
