HB 35 (Prohibit Firearms Seizure/Registry) scheduled for proponent testimony in House committee

Chairman Ron Maag has announced that the House State Government committee will be hearing proponent testimony on two firearms-related bills today, Wednesday, May 13, at 2:00 p.m. in Room 121.

The Chairman had previously announced a hearing for HB 152 (Constitutional Carry), and he has now added HB 35 (Prohibit Firearms Seizure/Registry), sponsored jointly by Representatives Wes Retherford (R-Hamilton) and Ron Hood (R-Alliance), to the schedule for proponent testimony.

The bill seeks to prohibit any agency and its employees and agents from seizing or authorizing the seizure of any firearm from any person lawfully in possession or control of the firearm except when a law enforcement officer reasonably believes the immediate seizure of the firearm is necessary for the safety of the officer or another person or to preserve the firearm as evidence, to prohibit the establishment of a firearm registry, and to prohibit law enforcement officers and international agents from enforcing a firearms registration requirement or firearm ban.
