North Dakota Senators killed a measure that would allow any elected official to carry a hidden firearm in a government building or at a public gathering.

The Senate rejected the bill that the House overwhelmingly passed earlier this month. Senate and House negotiators could not agree on some provisions in the bill. Senator Kelly Armstrong says the Senate wanted to allow elected officials to only mean those holding statewide office.

Sen. Kelly Armstrong: “It’s kind of the opposite- that was never really the intent of the bill in fairness. It was supposed to deal with statewide and legislative candidates but it’s kind of the opposite of local control in that you can do whatever local elections you have and where you’re at at your local level could affect everybody at every school district or public building across the state.”

 Armstrong also says the Senate wanted to exclude churches and schools from the bill.
