The Senate agreed Thursday to minor changes the House made to Senate Bill 2425. Gov. Phil Bryant, who says he will sign the legislation.

“Hunting, fishing and enjoying the outdoors are an essential part of the fabric of Mississippi, and I have worked to defend Second Amendment rights and protect our state’s outdoor heritage,” Bryant said Thursday. “This measure will help Mississippians access firearms and supplies to enjoy the outdoors, and I look forward to receiving and signing the bill.”
