New this week:

HB0061 would allow firearm dealers to 'occasionally' sell firearms from their personal collection without having to do a background check

With the exception of banning firearms in schools SB0131 is an amazing bill that guts a multitude of regulations and rules regarding firearms. It includes constitutional carry, complete reciprocity with other states and strengthening preemption among other items
