2022 Legislative Session Kickoff

The 2022 legislative session officially starts Tuesday 1/11 and there isn’t much of a stay of execution for gun owners this year. The first gun control bills will have a public hearing on Wednesday 1/12 in the House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee at 10:00 AM. Three new bills that were pre-filed this year will be heard. These are:

  • HB 1618 – Banning weapons at election related offices
  • HB 1630 – Restricting weapons in certain locations
  • HB 1705 – Banning “Ghost Guns”

What We’re Expecting in 2022

Bob Furgeson’s #1 priority remains, as always, banning magazines and “assault weapons.” We’re expecting the bills that didn’t move last year to get a renewed push this year.

While there have only been a handful of bills pre-filed for the session, it’s certainly possible that additional bills will be submitted throughout the session. All the gun-control bills that did not pass or fail last year will carry over as well as we’re in the second year of the 2021-2022 biennium. So be on the lookout for old bills to filter into committee meetings and public hearings.
