Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Concealed Carry Act. Provides that a law enforcement agency may submit an objection to a license applicant based upon specific and articulable reasons or circumstances (rather than a reasonable suspicion) that the applicant is a danger to himself or herself or others, or a threat to public safety. Provides that the Concealed Carry Licensing Review Board may request more information from the law enforcement agency that submits an objection and if the request is made the agency shall have 30 days to supply the required information. Provides that if the agency fails to respond or does not provide adequate information, the objection shall be rendered moot and the Board shall grant the license. Provides that the Board may not take more than 90 days to render a decision from the time the objection is filed. Provides that failure to render a decision shall be grounds for a mandamus action in which the Board shall be liable for all costs and attorney's incurred by the applicant. Effective immediately.
