Phil Bryant on Gun Control
Concealed carry without permit; that's a fundamental right
Governor Phil Bryant has signed two gun rights measures into law. Senate Bill 2394 allows Mississippians the option of carrying a pistol or revolver in a purse, briefcase or other fully enclosed case without a concealed carry permit. Senate Bill 2619
allows active duty military, veterans and retired law enforcement officers to count firearms training toward the requirements for an enhanced concealed carry permit and protects Mississippians from federal overregulation of ammunition.
"The right to
keep and bear arms is fundamental to America and to Mississippi," Bryant said. "I have always been a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, and I am proud to sign these bills into law."
Senate Bill 2394 also:

Defend the Second Amendment
Defend the Second Amendment: As citizens of the United States, we have been constitutionally given the right to bear arms. We must always support the rights of law-abiding citizens to own guns for hunting, shooting sports and personal protection and
safety. I am a longtime member of the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action and a recipient of the Kirk Fordice Freedom Award presented annually by the Central Mississippi chapter of the NRA.
