Batch of gun bills close to floor votes
Sunday, February 12, 2017
The tail end of the first half of this legislative session will go out with a bang in a couple weeks as more than a dozen bills relating to firearms law will head to the floor of their respective chambers.
Among those being deliberated include concealed carry in schools as well as a bill proposing “constitutional carry” in North Dakota, which would allow people over the age of 21 to carry without a permit if not otherwise prohibited by law.
Changes to law governing permission for guns in churches is being proposed, as are changes to permission to conceal carry at public gatherings. A few clean-up bills also are being reviewed.
