Public Hearing for Emergency Right to Carry Permit to be Held Wednesday, March 15!
Next Wednesday, March 15, the House Judiciary Committees Criminal Laws Subcommittee will have a public hearing on H 4473, introduced by Representative Catherine Ceips (R-124).
This legislation will establish an expedited process for issuing an emergency Right-to-Carry (RTC) permit to victims of domestic violence. H 4473 will also require victims be notified of this personal protection option if their request for an order of protection is granted, and will ensure that, should a domestic violence victim obtain an emergency RTC permit, that victims personal information cannot be released unless for the purpose of an official police investigation. This will prevent abusers from tracking down their victims by exploiting the current system that allows easy access to personal information regarding RTC permit holders.
