Current Bill Summary

SB 1005 - This act specifies that an individual, who owns or leases private property and is claiming a justification of using protective force, may use deadly force against a person who unlawfully enters, remains after unlawfully entering, or attempts to unlawfully enter the property.

The owner or lessor of private property does not have a duty to retreat from such property.

Currently, a person commits the crime of unlawful possession of a firearm if he or she is a convicted felon possessing a firearm. This act would allow such persons to possess antique firearms.

The minimum age requirement for obtaining a concealed carry endorsement is lowered from 23 to 21 years of age. To process a change of address for a concealed carry endorsement, the sheriff of the new jurisdiction may charge a fee of not more than $10. Also, a sheriff may charge a fee of not more than $10 to change the name on an endorsement.

This act has certain provisions that are similar to HB 1787 (2010), HB 1206 (2010), HB 1669 (2010), HCS/HB 1787 (2010), SCS/HB 1802 (2010), HB 2068 (2010), and SB 968 (2010).
