State Representative John Becker (R-Union Township) today announced that he has introduced House Bill 236, which will allow all non-federal, public sector employees with a concealed carry license to carry into all non-federal and non-secured public buildings.

Regarding the legislation, Representative Becker made the following statement:

“House Bill 236 will allow employees and elected officials who have a concealed carry license to defend themselves. Buildings secured with metal detectors would remain off limits except for law enforcement personnel. I believe that we ought to be able to defend ourselves. As criminals continue to ignore state gun laws, this bill empowers law-abiding citizens to respond to these threats with equal force.”

House Bill 236 will now receive further consideration upon being assigned to a House standing committee.
