House Bill 1417 states: Regulation of rifles and shotguns. Prohibits a person from carrying a rifle or shotgun in public after December 31, 2006, unless the person obtains a license to do so from the state police. Provides certain exceptions. Makes the penalties for carrying a rifle or shotgun without a license the same as the penalties for carrying a handgun without a license. Prohibits a person from possessing a rifle or shotgun in a motor vehicle while the vehicle is in operation on a public highway or the vehicle is located on the right-of-way of a public highway unless the rifle or shotgun is: (1) unloaded; and (2) contained in the locked trunk of the motor vehicle or, if the motor vehicle is not equipped with a trunk, a locked case, or other secure container. This is currently in Legislation that could become law this year. That would require every one of us that hunt with guns, to have to get a license, similar to the personal protection permit required for hand guns. What do you think?
