Under current law, an applicant for a concealed handgun permit must satisfy certain criteria, including a requirement that the he or she is at least 21 years of age. The bill amends this requirement to state that the applicant must be either:
- Twenty-one years of age or older; or
- Eighteen years of age or older and on active duty in, or honorably discharged from, any branch or reserve branch of the United States military forces, including the National Guard.
(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
