The bill that would strip local municipalities of the ability to cite civilians for disorderly conduct for openly carrying a weapon in public passed the state House Tuesday, despite a long floor debate about whether it would hinder police from handling potential threats, the newspaper said..

Fraternal Order of Police lobbyist Kelly Atkinson said his group’s membership was divided on the bill, with some members saying it helps gun rights and others saying it put police in danger on the street.
