    I thought the Bill(s) would also eliminate the License to Purchase for those without a CPL...Guess I was wrong.

    Below is an analysis of the proposed law on the elimination of safety inspections. The law would eliminate these inspections, but you still need a license to own, purchase, etc.a handgun. You can get the license from your local LOE office. After getting a license to own a handgun you must keep the license with you for 30 days when you have in your possession your handgun. After 30 days you do not have to have the license on you when possessing said weapon. I think CPL holders are exempt from this?????
