1. Sanity prevails.

 

Hopefully, the tide will continue in this direction.

And I applaud both Senators Prozanski and Burdick decision to enact reasonable, and common sense gun control legislation that respects and observes the RKBA and yet leaves room for public safety.


--Ban guns in the Capitol. Under the measure, Prozanski said, those with a concealed handgun license could still bring a gun into the building with the permission of the legislative administrator or law enforcement.

--Expand background checks to also cover private sales and transfers between individuals. There would be an exemption for sales or transfers between immediate family members.

--Ban concealed handgun licensees from carrying guns onto school grounds. However school districts would be able to opt out of the ban under the measure.

--Require live-fire training to obtain a concealed handgun license. Prozanski said most courses for the license already require this training.
