Mississippi RTC Bill Goes To Governor For Final Approval

posted on April 8, 2016

The Mississippi House of Representatives on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to concur with Senate amendments to House Bill 786, sending the Right-to-Carry expansion legislation to Republican Gov. Phil Bryant for his expected signature.   

Despite months of misleading attacks by New York gun-ban billionaire Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun state groups, lawmakers overwhelmingly approved HB 786 this session. The measure, by Republican state Rep. Andy Gipson, will:

  • Expand current permitless carry options to include belt and shoulder holsters;
  • Allow 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
  • Prohibit state or local enforcement of federal executive orders or agency regulations not approved by Congress which conflict with the Constitution of the United States or the Mississippi Constitution.
