This bill authorizes governing bodies of certain public entities that own or control public building to adopt policy, ordinance or regulation or precluding affirmative defense for possession of firearms in public building and adjacent grounds by concealed handgun licensees. Provides that in prosecution for possession of firearm in building or on grounds subject to such policy, ordinance or regulation, concealed handgun licensee affirmative defense is not complete defense, but results in Class A misdemeanor conviction punishable by 364 days’ imprisonment, $6,250 fine, or both.
“Gun Free Zones” don’t work! It simply gives more buildings for criminal intent, where a person is “not allowed” to carry, more people are going to be put in a dangerous situation. Police aren’t sufficiently funded and can’t even respond to some situations. This infringes upon the Second Amendment Rights of a free people causing a major open invitation to anyone who would choose to create massive chaos.
If enough buildings adopt this policy, it effectively eliminate carry, which is unconstitutional.
