New Mississippi Concealed Carry Bill Signed Into Law; Allows Off-Body Carry Without A Permit, Reduces Permit Fees

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI — The Governor of Mississippi has signed two new bills into law that changes the way people can legally carry firearms in the state.

Senate Bill 2394, which was signed today and will take effect July 1st, will let Mississippians carry a concealed gun in a purse, briefcase or other fully enclosed satchel without a state-issued permit.

The fee structure for concealed carry permits will also change as follows:

The fee for a new license would drop to $80 from $100, and the renewal fee for people younger than 65 would drop to $40 from $50. For people 65 and older, the renewal fee would drop to $20 from $25.

The second bill signed into law, Senate Bill 2619, allows disabled veterans, active-duty military service and current or honorably retired law enforcement officers to count firearms training toward the requirements needed for an enhanced concealed carry permit.

Things are a-changin’, folks.

    In Texas we have a similar law that allows us to carry in our vehicles without a license. The only stipulations are you can’t be a gang member, have alcohol in your system, or be prohibited from owning a handgun

    • Bob Wilkins

      Right but as I remember, you have to have a conceal permit to carry it once you leave your vehicle. Not a big fan of that stipulation.

  • robert g

    Another step in the right direction.

  • Ralston Hughes

    Mississippi considers your vehicle the same as your home, you can keep a fire arm any place in your vehicle that you choose.

    Dear Mississippi,

    Can we borrow your legislature and governor for a while? We promise to take really good care of them and not teach them any bad habits.

    Sincerely,
    Gun owners of Tennessee

    Wish that would happen here in California, but the liberals and governor moonbeam would fight it tooth an nail.
