The state senate on Tuesday passed an expanded Constitutional Carry bill.
The bill (HB 786) started as a mere church security bill to allow concealed carry permit holders to carry in church.
It was amended in the house to include Constitutional Carry — enabling law-abiding citizens to carry firearms in a “sheath, belt holster or shoulder holster” without getting permission. The bill was then sent to the senate.
Having arrived there, HB 786 was expanded yet again to include a provision nullifying many types of Obama gun control.
The bill passed overwhelmingly — by a 36-14 vote in the senate — and now goes back to the house.
