Summary as passed House: (all summaries)
Control of firearms; applicability to authorities and local governmental agencies. Removes the grandfather clause that allows localities to enforce ordinances governing firearms that were passed before January 1, 1987, and affirmatively declares that any local ordinances adopted prior to January 1, 1987, are invalid. The bill also removes language relating to the purchase of handguns that would allow a more stringent local ordinance relating to purchase or transfer of firearms adopted prior to January 1, 1987, to supersede state law relating to purchase or transfer. This change is necessary because the bill would invalidate any such local ordinance. This bill incorporates HB 483.
