Tuesday, the Mississippi House approved NRA-supported legislation that corrects vague and problematic language in Mississippi’s firearm carry laws by a 111-8 vote. House Bill 2, sponsored by state Representative Andy Gipson (R-Brandon), addresses a recent opinion by state Attorney General Jim Hood (D) that has caused confusion and concern among carry permit holders and Second Amendment advocates. According to this opinion, it is now unlawful for both regular and enhanced carry permit holders to carry holstered, partially-visible pistols on their person. Additionally, any permit holder who temporarily or accidentally displays their pistol — when removing or adjusting a suit jacket or sport coat, for example — would be violating the law.
