The legislation, House Bill 1143, initiated by 18 state leaders, aims to curb ‘gun violence’. As the year concludes, these regulations are set to take effect.

The significant change is a mandatory 10-day waiting period for all gun purchases, including shotguns and pistols.

House Bill 1143 received leadership from State Representative Liz Berry and Senator Strom Peterson. Rep. Berry, who recently attended a White House event on Gun Violence Prevention.

Let’s hope this works, because outlawing murder hasn’t been working.
