HB 45 Passes Out of House Committee
.. and on to the house for a vote hopefully this week. If it passes the House, then it's on to the Senate.

Specifically, House Bill 45 will simplify the provisions related to the carrying of firearms in vehicles by eliminating the “micromanaging” provisions that dictate where a gun must be stored in a vehicle, which allows law-abiding citizens to avoid accidental violations. It retains the current procedures that are followed when a licensee is pulled over and approached by a law enforcement official.

The legislation would also permit license holders to carry in establishments that serve alcohol provided that the individual is not consuming alcohol or under the influence of alcohol, but maintains existing penalties for violations. Private establishments would still have the authority to prohibit concealed carry on their premises.
