After a rocky start, Mississippi appears ready to pass a 90% constitutional carry bill. Bickering among second amendment supporters seemed to doom constitutional carry in the state early this year. Hard feelings were ignited between longtime legislative supporters of the second amendment, and serious, unfounded allegations were tossed about. But it appears that those supporting the second amendment in the Mississippi legislature have overcome those difficulties and passed a significant reform to restore second amendment rights on Friday, 27 March, 2015.
SB 2394 started off as an incremental reform to amend the concealed carry permit fees in Mississippi. It became a vehicle to enact 90% constitutional carry in the state. It appears that in the conference committee, the legislative leaders realized that all the bickering was about non-issues, and that they agreed far more than they disagreed.
