North Dakota legislative committee hears variety of gun bills
Thursday, January 26, 2017
With Second Amendment rights and public safety concerns at the forefront, North Dakota lawmakers heard testimony on a group of gun bills Thursday.
Perhaps the most contentious piece of legislation heard Thursday was the so-called “constitutional carry” bill, introduced by Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck. That bill would make it legal for people who are at least 21 years old to carry a concealed firearm without a permit in North Dakota, as long as the carrier is not otherwise prohibited to do so by law.
