A Mississippi bill that would safeguard gun-owner rights during natural disasters and from local municipalities seeking to regulate gun possession is now headed to the governor’s desk for signature.
The bill, HB314, forbids confiscation of legally owned firearms in the event of emergency or natural disaster as well as provides for guns in public housing, passed the state Senate with amendments by a 40-11 vote and was confirmed in the House by a 103-18 vote on Wednesday.
I’m very pleased that House Bill 314 passed both chambers of the Mississippi Legislature and is now being sent to Gov. Bryant for signature,” Rep. Andy Gipson, the bill’s sponsor, told Guns.com Friday.
