2019 - 2020 LEGISLATURE
September 5, 2019 - Introduced by Representatives Subeck, C. Taylor, Anderson,
Billings, Emerson, Kolste, Ohnstad, Sinicki and Sargent, cosponsored by
Senators Larson, Risser, Johnson and L. Taylor. Referred to Committee on
Criminal Justice and Public Safety.
AB416,1,3 1An Act to amend 941.29 (1g) (a), 941.291 (1) (b) and 973.123 (1); and to create
2941.29 (3m) of the statutes; relating to: storage of a firearm in a house in which
3a resident is prohibited from possessing a firearm and providing a penalty.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill requires a person to store any firearm he or she possesses in a securely
locked box or container or other secure locked location or with a trigger lock engaged
if the person resides with a person who is prohibited from possessing a firearm under
state law. A person who violates this requirement is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor
for a first offense and a Class I felony for a second or subsequent offense.
Because this bill creates a new crime or revises a penalty for an existing crime,
the Joint Review Committee on Criminal Penalties may be requested to prepare a
report.

enact as follows:
