House Bill 405 as substituted and reported by the Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security revises certain restrictions regarding the carrying or possession of a pistol, and eliminates the requirement to obtain a pistol permit in order to carry a concealed pistol.
Additionally, this bill could reduce receipts to the several counties, by an undetermined amount, dependent on the number of individuals that would no longer obtain a concealed carry permit to carry a concealed pistol and the cost of the permit.
This bill could decrease potential receipts to the State General Fund and municipal general funds from fines; decrease potential receipts to the State General Fund, county general funds, municipal general funds, and other funds to which court costs are deposited; and could decrease potential obligations of the district attorneys and local jails by an undetermined amount dependent on the number of persons would have otherwise been charged with and convicted of violating provisions regarding carrying a concealed pistol and the penalties that would have been imposed.
