Default More states are allowing people to carry concealed handguns without a permit

"New Hampshire this week passed a law allowing residents to carry a concealed handgun without a permit, joining a growing number of states that are allowing residents to carry weapons out of sight without a license.

At least 11 states have passed laws allowing the concealed carry of guns without a permit, and 16 states have introduced legislation this year to do the same, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures and the National Rifle Association. Gun rights advocates see the laws as the next frontier in Second Amendment rights. But the legislation has been controversial in many places where it has been introduced, with law enforcement members, politicians and gun proponents arguing that the bills go too far.

“That’s kind of the next step in expanding law-abiding gun owners’ constitutional right to self-protection,” said Jennifer Baker, a spokeswoman for the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “It’s where a lot of states are moving.”

This is exactly the way it should be.
The 'permit' to carry is the Second Amendment.
I also love the fact that overall our country's trend these days is MORE gun freedoms. Sort of a "screw you" to the left.

This animated map shows the evolution of gun freedoms by state since the mid 80s.
A great trend!

I agree, and any other permits shouldn't be needed.

This is good news.Although its a shame that due to corrupt judges and politicians that additional laws need to be created to reinforce what the 2nd amendment says we already have the right to.

Yep KS., carry concealed is in-effect next month. And there is pressure to not carry on college campus and in hospitals in our state. Law makers are debating these issues right now.

As for any rules I don't know as I stopped following when I gave up my fire arms..

I got Jesus.......... And have not missed having all of my guns. Still have 2 muzzle loaders.. And several ounces of powder...

But can't find any .58 cal. mini balls.
