Three states have already passed a new version of concealed carry giving citizens the right to carry a concealed firearm without having to go through any permitting process. It is called “Constitutional carry” and it is an idea that is gaining steam across the nation.
The good folks at BearingArms.com recently reported on the new laws in Kansas, New Hampshire, and West Virginia and how the idea is a growing goal for gun advocates across the nation.
Supporters of the legislation in Kansas pointed out that permitless open carry was already the law of the land, and that citizens shouldn’t have to get a permit to simply put on a coat that might conceal the same firearm. They also pointed out the absurdity of requiring law-abiding citizens to get a permit, when criminals were going to carry weapons illegally, regardless of laws. The bill now heads to the Kansas House.
Already one of the safest states in the nation, the New Hampshire Senate passed a constitutional carry bill on a party line vote, with anti-liberty Democrats once again in opposition to reasserted gun rights. The bill now heads to the New Hampshire House.
In West Virginia, the Senate passed constitutional carry legislation in an overwhelming bipartisan 32-2 vote, where once again the only opposition came from a pair of anti-liberty Democrats. The West Virginia legislation also drops the age requirement to carry a concealed weapon from 21 to 18.
Currently, residents of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Vermont, and Wyoming (for residents) have constitutional carry, while five other states recognize a limited form of constitutional carry. A total of 21 states have had some form of constitutional carry proposed within recent years.
What part of “shall not infringe” don’t anti-gunners understand… well, besides all of it?
