Senate splits on 6-bill firearm legislation package
BISMARCK -- Senate lawmakers split their votes Thursday over a six-bill package of firearm legislation.
Lawmakers said concealed weapons should not be allowed in schools, but they are welcome in churches with the permission of a church leader.
Other bills that passed include one to require nonviolent felons to file a petition with the state's attorney to gain their gun rights and another to allow concealed weapons in gaming sites, or any place that sells lottery tickets.
