Bill Caption

Relating to the prosecution of the offense of possessing a weapon in certain prohibited places associated with schools or post-secondary educational institutions. 

Bill Analysis

HB 349 would tighten and clarify statutory language with respect to where firearms are prohibited and under what circumstances involving schools or postsecondary educational institutions. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

The goal of this bill is to ensure that unintended interpretations of the law relating to firearms carry do not occur and to prevent prosecution under those laws in a way not intended by the legislature. This supports limited government. For this reason we support SB 349.
