Re: HB 1177, SB 506 - Unlicensed Carry During State of Disaster

Interesting article on the passage of the HB 1177 conference committee report in the Senate.

Looks like there are a few Republicans who are not friends of the Second Amendment.
Though a supporter of the Second Amendment, Huffman labeled the changes dangerous and preposterous.

“I think it’s really, really poor public policy that is not thought out,” Huffman said. “I think you are creating a situation which will be very difficult for law enforcement because, instead of having to deal with rescuing people or helping people, they have to deal with situations about how to confront someone with a gun.”
The same old tripe about making difficult situations for law enforcement. Let's see how this SHOULD go:

Law enforcement officer comes to a MWaG call. Dispatch has determined that the person isn't doing anything suspicious, but a "concerned citizen" has called indicating someone is carrying a firearm in an emergency shelter.

Officer: Hello, I'm officer X with Y police department. We received a call about a person carrying a gun and you match the description of that individual.
Suspect: Hello officer. I'm evacuating from X location due to the state of disaster that was declared. I've already cleared carrying in this shelter with the owner and am following all the rules that they have set out.
Officer: Carry on.

What is so difficult about that?
