Rep. Rick Jasperse
District 11

This bill removes the restriction on the carrying and possession of firearms in a place of worship. However, individual places of worship may chose to restrict access for those carrying firearms as the owners or legal occupiers of private property.

The bill also provides for rules that municipalities must follow regarding the disposal by sale of firearms in the municipality's possession. These rules include the creation of a cause of action through mandamus that a person can bring who wishes to compel the provided for disposition of the firearms in the municipality's possession.
