    Couple of SB93 Questions

    I've read through the FAQ and found a couple of items I was hoping some on this forum could clarify for me:

    1) The "bill modifies the prohibition against possession of a firearm . . . in a wildlife refuge" and state parks and fish hatcheries. Does this apply to both open and concealed carry of a handgun?

    2) The FAQ states that a licensee is subject to a Class B forfeiture "if a person possesses a firearm at a place the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is within 1,000 feet of the grounds of a school." Does this mean that the GFSZ is still in effect, and having a license only reduces the penalty?

    I'd appreciate any feedback from you legal eagles out there . . .

    1) After reading the bill a couple of times I believe you need the permit to carry in a wildlife refuge, state park, or fish hatchery. With the permit, open or concealed doesn't matter

    2) Without a permit, the penalty is only reduced, but only the state penalty, federal is still the same. With a permit you are good to go within 1,000 feet of school grounds but not on school grounds.

    I'm sure on number two but only pretty sure on number 1.

    As I said in another thread, this bill is a tangled mess of stuff.

    Oh, and IANAL of course.

    1. either way as long as you have a permit.

    2. Only if you don't have a permit.
