Convicted felons could be carrying guns in a mall near you

In perhaps my last post of the day to make up for my inactivity during the Easter weekend, I want to announce that HB 1393 by Rep. Kino Flores (D-Mission) was approved during second reading today and passed to engrossment. HB 1393 would exempt corporate private security forces from felony background checks and fingerprinting by the state's Private Security Board. Its companion bill, SB 622 by Sen. Florence Shapiro (R-Plano) is still in the Senate Business & Commerce Committee.

If passed, guards hired through a private security force employment company would not be exempted. HB 1393 would only apply to those hired individually or "in house" private security.

Nevermind: I didn't check the amendments until now. The bill would still exempt "in house" private security guards, but an amendment by Rep. Haggerty would disallow the hiring of a person who has "been convicted of a crime that would otherwise preclude the person" from being qualified for the job. So the language is ambiguous, but it looks better at least.
