HB 17-1036: Permitting the Carrying of Concealed Handguns on Public School Grounds

On January 11, 2017, Reps. Patrick Neville & Kim Ransom and Sen. Tim Neville introduced HB 17-1036, “Concerning Permitting the Carrying of Concealed Handguns on Public School Grounds.”

With certain exceptions, current law limits the authority of a person who holds a valid permit to carry a concealed handgun by prohibiting permit holders from carrying a concealed handgun on public elementary, middle, junior high, or high school grounds. The bill removes this limitation.

The bill was introduced in the House and assigned to the State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee.
