Concealed Carry Compromise Advances
Concealed Carry Compromise Advances

A compromise concealed carry bill has passed a House committee by a comfortable 13-3 margin.

It includes bans on guns in parks, athletic fields, and on public transit systems.  It would also cost 150 dollars to get licensed to carry a gun in public.

Some say these measures could be enough to push the bill through the House; it’s expected to get a full hearing and possibly a floor vote on Friday.
