Senate Bill 115, sponsored by state Senator Moises Denis (D-2), would expand the list of places firearms are prohibited from being carried and kept in vehicles to include public libraries. The motivation behind this bill likely stems from an incident last year where a mother of three, who home schools her children, was detained and handcuffed for open carrying in a public library even though it’s not prohibited under current law.Senate Bill 102, sponsored by state Senator James Settelmeyer (R-17), would allow lawful gun owners with concealed weapon permits to carry or store their firearms in their vehicles on school property. This bill would help fix a shortfall in the concealed carry laws that place permit holders in violation of state law by simply crossing the arbitrary line that defines a school zone.

Gunning for Hillary: The NRA's unheralded role in the 2016 elections
