The House Judiciary Committee will hold decision-making on this bill, HB2999, on Thursday, February 28th at 2:50 p.m. in Room 325 of the State Capitol. It is the only bill on the agenda. As this is decision-making only, no public testimony will be accepted. (See blog post on 2/23/08 for a summary of the issue.)
The bill proposes several things, but the controversial part of the measure is the following: Prohibits importation, manufacture, possession, sale, barter, trade, gift, transfer, or acquisition of any .50 BMG rifle or .50 BMG cartridge.
