HB 6005 restores the right of certain individuals to store a firearm in a vehicle on school property. Under the
bill, a school district can prohibit a student from storing a firearm inside a vehicle on school property, but can
no longer prohibit anyone else who may be on school property, such as employees or parents, from storing
firearms inside their vehicles. The bill does not change the prohibition against carrying a firearm into a school
facility or school-sponsored event.
