HesseMartone Attorney Virginia Lay provided Senate testimony regarding SB613—a controversial gun bill that loosens gun restrictions and could nullify some existing guns laws.  If passed, this law would

  • nullify all federal gun laws;
  • allow the open carry of firearms up to 16 inches in length;
  • lower the age for concealed-carry permit holders from 21 to 19;
  • allow school districts to designate one or more teachers or administrators as armed school protection officers;
  • specify that no licensed health care professional may be required by law to ask a patient if he/she owns a firearm; and
  • prevent conceal-carry permit holders from being disarmed or physically restrained by law enforcement officers unless under arrest.
