Montana House changes Mind Again on Automatic School Suspension Gun Bill
HELENA, Mont. (AP) – The House is again changing its mind on a measure dealing with guns at school, essentially leaving the law as it currently stands.
The chamber rejected House Bill 384 in a final 53-45 vote Wednesday. The bill would have ended the requirement for automatic suspension for students accused of bringing guns onto school property.
The House had approved that measure a day earlier.
The bill originally would have allowed students to have guns on school property if they were locked in their vehicles. That version was rejected last week.
The chamber endorsed another gun rights measure Tuesday that says medical patients are not required to say whether they own or possess guns in order to receive services. Supporters argued such information could be used to track gun owners.
