Bunch of new bills today. The big one to watch looks like H.B. No. 6001, which appears to be another unconstitutional “show your papers” law. CCDL and it’s members have successfully defeated this bill multiple times in the past, but the gun grabbers never give up, and neither do we.
Remember, these are just the bills announced today. You can always see the full list of bills CCDL is tracking this year by clicking the “Pending Legislation” button near the top of the page, or bookmarking this link: www.ccdl.us/blog/2017-legislation
