Current Bill Summary

SB 884 - This act reenacts a provision that was rescinded from law by HB 294 (2011). The provision authorizes the use of certain otherwise unlawful weapons if the weapons are being dealt with as curios, ornaments, or keepsakes.

Training requirements for concealed carry endorsement applicants were increased in HB 294 (2011). This act adopts a grandfather clause for those who were issued a firearms safety training certificate prior to the date the standards were increased, so these certificate-holders can receive a concealed carry endorsement without having to retake a training course.

Under current law, a sheriff may make any inquiries he or she deems necessary to determine the accuracy of statements made in the application for a concealed carry permit. This act provides that the sheriff may only make inquiries necessary to verify statements made in the application.

This act specifies that any person who meets certain qualifications must be considered a qualified firearms safety instructor with regard to training requirements for concealed carry permits.

This act contains provisions similar to provisions truly agreed to and finally passed in SS/HCS/HB 1647 (2012) and SS/SCS/SBs 489 & 637 (2012).
