2016 MS Gun Bills Still Alive - House bills assigned to Senate Judiciary A

Note changes to HB 786.

Next deadline: March 22 for committee action in receiving chamber. You can view bills at http://www.legislature.ms.gov/Pages/default.aspx under "Legislation."


SB 2313
Sen. Tindell
PASSED SENATE - goes to House

Removes silencer registration requirement from state law.

SB 2515
Sen. Hill
PASSED Accountability, Efficiency, Transparency
PASSED SENATE - goes to House

Exempts the records of the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks relating to applications for and holders of hunting licenses from the provisions of the Mississippi Public Records Act of 1983. Records shall be released only upon proper court order or to law enforcement upon request.


HB 1300
Reps. Hood, Crawford

Cleans up and adds some protections for sport shooting ranges, but also includes provision allowing the government to close private ranges due to "incompatibility with nearby population or land use."


HB 758
Reps. Hood, Morgan, Patterson, Mettetal, Beckett, Rogers (61st), Tullos, Oliver, Baker, Kinkade, Hale, Rushing, Formby, Chism, Byrd, Mims, Criswell, Willis, Currie, Boyd, Henley
PASSED HOUSE - goes to Senate Jud. A

Adds state agencies, commissions and boards to the preemption law generally prohibiting their adoption of firearms restrictions or taxes. This is desperately needed, and should solve the problem of illicit "no guns" signs and prohibitions at various state and local government buildings throughout the state.

HB 1294
Reps. Frierson, Moore
PASSE HOUSE - goes to Senate Jud. A

Adds knives and knife businesses to local ordinance preemption law.


HB 600
Rep. Gipson
PASSED HOUSE - goes to Senate Jud. A

Revises CCW license renewal process: Extends expiration notice time, adds alternating on-line renewals, reduces senior renewal fees, provides that DPS shall promulgate rules and regulations to certify firearms instructors (including standards for certification, documentation of certification, a listing of all certified firearms instructors within the state, and fees for certification - i.e., what they're doing now without legal authority).


HB 571
Reps. Gipson, Morgan, Patterson, Mettetal, Beckett, Rogers (61st), Tullos, Oliver, Baker, Kinkade, Hale, Rushing, Formby, Chism, Byrd, Criswell, Boyd, Currie, Bomgar, Weathersby, Shirley, Moore, Crawford
PASSED HOUSE - goes to Senate Jud. A

Clarifies the meaning of "courthouse" and "courtroom" in existing CW law. This is the part that many judges and court officers are currently violating. I don't know why they would obey this bill any better than they do current law.

See Rep. Gipson's article about the bill here:

HB 786
Reps. Representatives Gipson, Morgan, Mettetal, Beckett, Rogers (61st), Tullos, Oliver, Baker, Kinkade, Hale, Rushing, Formby, Chism, Miles, Bain, Mims, Criswell, Willis, Currie, Boyd, Bomgar, Hopkins, Weathersby, Moore, Shirley, Arnold, Staples, Monsour, Barnett, Crawford, Dixon
PASSED HOUSE - goes to Senate Jud. A

Allows churches to authorize armed "security" church members & offers a defense of statutory immunity of churches and those members from related civil liability if such members are enhanced permit qualified, and an additional defense (with burden on the accused member and NOT an exemption or immunity) to those members against criminal prosecution.

Note that it's already legal to CCW at a church with the enhanced permit or to open carry without a permit, and the bill does not speak to those actions outside of the new security teams, so I think the practical effect of this part of the bill is very minimal, and of no consequence at all for CCW with the enhanced permit. The liability limitation is new. Also, it seems that this bill allows the "authorized" members to CCW at church with no permit (if they want to give up the civil immunity).

HOLSTER CARRY - This bill also now includes the open carry language (not related to churches) from HB 1352, that "No license shall be required under this section for a loaded or unloaded pistol or revolver carried upon the person in a sheath, belt holster or shoulder holster..." (''...or carried in a purse, handbag, satchel, other similar bag or briefcase or fully enclosed case").


HB 782
Reps. Formby, Gipson, Morgan, Patterson, Mettetal, Beckett, Rogers (61st), Tullos, Oliver, Baker, Kinkade, Hale, Rushing, Chism, Byrd, Criswell, Currie, Boyd, Bomgar, Weathersby, Shirley, Barnett, Moore, Crawford
PASSED HOUSE - goes to Senate Jud. A

Prohibits enforcement by MS public employees of federal firearms laws which violate the Mississippi Constitution, with civil penalties and misdemeanor violations provided.
