that is interesting does anybody know if this happened with SB 978 before they gutted and stuffed it?
978 was not removed prior to the public hearing. SB-979's removal says they feel confident that whatever bills have been passed or are in the works is enough to get through the legislature. Good news is, SB-978 probably won't get worse than it is nor will be a bill with more restrictions be gut and amended. Bad news is we are stuck with the horrible SB-978.

I'm still clinging to the hope SB 978 doesn't pass.

Stuck in the sense that it is not yet dead, yes. Stuck in the sense that it is destined to become law, hopefully no. Let's continue to come up with ideas, look for receptive ears, and do everything we can to make sure that it doesn't become law.

We all know that CHL holders as a whole belong to the group of most law-abiding citizens in the country. Perhaps we can find some people in law enforcement to speak to the stupidity of the "gun free" zone idea in SB978.

I believe @dancinghippos provided some facts about that very subject (law enforcement views on concealed carry).
