BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Senate has rejected a House bill that would create new concealed carry licenses allowing firearms at public gatherings.

The Senate killed the House bill on 36-11 on Monday.

The bill would require annual training equal to police and private security officers training.

Holders of the licenses would be exempt from state law’s ban on possessing a firearm at a public gathering, which includes athletic events, schools, churches and public buildings.

The Senate killed a similar House bill in 2017.
