Two pro-gun bills have been assigned to the state Assembly Judiciary Committee and now await consideration. Assembly Bill 143 would streamline the Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit process as well as provide that the identity of CCW permit holders not be made public information. Assembly Bill 8 would guarantee law-abiding citizens the right to self-defense in their homes. At this time, no hearing dates have been scheduled for either of these bills.
