House Bill 786 accomplishes the following:
Expands current permitless carry options to include belt and shoulder holsters. Legislation passed in 2015 had authorized Mississippians who are eligible to possess a firearm under state and federal law to carry a pistol or revolver without a license in purses, handbags, satchels, other similar bags or briefcases or fully enclosed cases.
Allows church authorities to develop security programs that designate enhanced carry permit holders or those with military or law enforcement backgrounds to protect places of worship and receive the benefits of existing protections under the state’s “Castle Doctrine” law.
Prohibits state or local enforcement of federal executive orders or agency regulations not approved by Congress which conflict with the United States or Mississippi Constitutions.
