'Constitutional carry' gets a clean up bill

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - Legislators are working to clean up some ambiguous language in the state's constitutional carry law.

The law said only people who've been a resident in North Dakota at least a year could carry, but the law never mentioned they'd determine that by driver's license.

When the law took effect in August 2017, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem needed to step in with an opinion on how to determine residency.

"We just needed to go back and make sure the law was very clear on it being a driver's license. We didn't want to leave it to the ambiguity of a legislative intent issue," said Rep. Todd Porter, R-Mandan

Porter says this should be the final change they have to make to the law.
