Gun owners who legally transport and store weapons in their vehicles would have better-defined property rights under a measure debated Wednesday in the Legislature’s Judiciary Committee.

Legislative Bill 785 would provide clearer guidelines for the transportation and storage of firearms in vehicles in publicly accessible parking lots — common lots provided for both employees and customers — throughout the state.

Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial said many gun owners face inconsistent rules and actions by their employers. He and other bill supporters said people should be allowed to have permitted handguns and hunting guns carefully locked and stored in their vehicles and not be subjected to employer weapons bans.
