Right to Carry States

CCW legislation in Kansas & Mississippi

Kansas is poised to become the fifth US state to allow CCW everywhere without a permit (see MS legislation below). You haven’t heard much out of the other four states (Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming, plus unincorporated areas of Montana [and Idaho — April 3, 2015 correction]) because the predicted bloodbath didn’t happen. Again.

Right to Carry StatesIn the green states in the graphic, if it is legal to own a gun, it is legal to carry it openly or concealed without any special permission from the state.

The “Second Amendment Enforcement Act,” a bill introduced in the US Senate this week by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and in the US House by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) would essentially leave the District of Columbia governed only by federal gun laws. Should this pass, we then only need to do away with all the unconstitutional federal laws (about 90% of all federal laws in my estimation).

Mississippi legislation

SB 2394, which reduces CCW license fees for some people (service members, old folks) has been amended in conference committee to also revive the special-looking CCW licenses for other “special” people (retired LEOs), AND to remove the requirement for a CCW license to carry “a loaded or unloaded pistol or revolver [carried] in a purse, handbag, satchel, other similar bag or briefcase or fully enclosed case.” The conference version has apparently been adopted.

SB 2619, which exempts active and honorably discharged military veterans from additional training required to obtain an enhanced concealed carry permit, and removes the state ban on “armor piercing ammunition as defined in federal law” from Section 97-37-31, Mississippi Code of 1972, has also passed conference committee and been adopted.
