- The state Justice Department is preparing to enact a second round of emergency rules enabling them to issue concealed carry permits.
The emergency rules were put in place last year for issuing and revoking permits. The regulations are set to expire December 15th.
The DOJ has already drafted permanent regulations. But the package needs Assembly and Senate approval though, and neither house has acted on it.
Legislative leaders say they'll address the rules after the new session begins in January.
The DOJ plans to implement a fresh set of emergency rules December 15. Those regulations will be identical to the ones currently in place.
