Mississippi “Permitless” Carry Measure Becomes Law

posted on April 18, 2016

Despite months of misleading attacks by New York gun-control advocate and billionaire Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun state groups, Republican Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has signed House Bill 786 into law.

The measure, by Republican State Rep Andy Gipson, accomplishes several things:

  • Expands current “permitless” carry options to include belt and shoulder holsters;
  • Allows church authorities to develop security programs that designate enhanced carry permit holders or those with military or law-enforcement backgrounds to protect places of worship and receive the benefits of existing protections under the state’s “Castle Doctrine” law; and
  • Prohibits state or local enforcement of federal executive orders or agency regulations not approved by Congress that conflict with the Constitution of the United States or the Mississippi Constitution.

Mississippi became the ninth state to pass legislation recognizing a law-abiding adult’s ability to carry a concealed pistol or revolver for personal protection without government-mandated permitting or fees. The new law takes effect immediately.
