Chair reads a slightly outdated number for the slips, ~40 to ~1000 with 6 no position.

 

Raoul complains that HB218 was not on the agreed bills list.  Claims that the bill is intended to help law enforcement when enforcing laws and to revoke the licenses of rogue gun dealers.  Claims that it is only adding liability for actions that are already unlawful.

ISRA speaker Jay Keller speaks next, NSSF representative as well.   Notes that with this many co-sponsors, this will pass.   Mentions in passing supremacy clause and federal preemption.  "Clearly violates federal law."

 

States that HB218 does not fall into any of the exceptions to the federal law.  Notes that there are only 6 specific exemptions.   Places clear restrictions on what states can and cannot do.  "The courts will find that federal law preempts state law."   "Does not pass the smell test."   "Gun advertisements do not deceive." 

 

Identical bills in other states have failed.  "This is one of those issues that will end up in a court of law."

Ed Sullivan of ISRA speaks next.

 

Two issues: not just about gun manufacturers, but also about people.   A person could be liable under this act.

 

Section 1(b) - If you have not done reasonable controls, including theft, individuals selling from their home could be liable for thefts from their homes.

 

Identifying straw purchasers as someone who has filled out a 4473 form as not using marijuana, but that has been allowed by the state.  Adds penalties for people who mark that on the 4473.

The agreed bill list are bills on which there is no opposition and, under procedures established during the COVID shortened session a few years ago, require no debate.

 

I think Mr. Raoul was being sarcastic toward the R side of things.

Josh Wichoski(?) - hunting and trapping group representative

 

Defines groups but not the subgroups -- worried that the definition is ambiguous and overly expansive, eg, covering organizations that hold raffles or auctions.

 

Notes that promotion and marketing is also overly expansive.

 

Notes that youth shooting teams will be impacted.. clothing and discounts on ammunition purchases would be impact.

Wants language to exclude organized youth shooting.
