    HB 26: Failure to carry concealed handgun permit; penalty

    Delegate Cole has resubmitted his bill that was illegally killed in the subcommittee. This is not a high profile issue, but current law allows you to be convicted of a gun crime for merely forgetting your wallet on you dresser in the morning. They say LEOs are "supposed" to use common sense in this matter... I don't want to bet my clean record on a LEO that happens to hate guns and law-abiding CHP-holders.

    Concealed handgun permits; confidentiality of permittee information

    Failure to carry concealed handgun permit; penalty. Provides that failure to produce, upon demand of a law-enforcement officer, a concealed handgun permit and a government-issued photo identification while carrying a concealed handgun is punishable by a $25 civil penalty. A court may waive this penalty if the person presents a valid concealed handgun permit and government-issued photo identification to the court. The bill also introduces an affirmative defense of having a valid concealed handgun permit to a charge of violating the concealed weapons statute.
