    Twelve States Considering Constitutional Carry

    Constitutional carry is becoming more popular as at least twelve state legislatures are considering removing legislative impediments for bearing arms. Four states, Alaska, Arizona, Vermont, and Wyoming already have forms of Constitutional, or "permit-less" carry. No ill effects have been connected with any of these efforts, as crime rates continue to fall across the nation.

    South Dakota's legislature recently passed Constitutional carry legislation. It sits on the desk of Governor Daugaard, waiting only for his signature to become law. If Governor Daugaard signs the bill, as many expect, South Dakota will bring the total of Constitutional carry states to 10 percent, covering over 25 percent of the land area of the United States.

    Montana and New Hampshire came very close to passing Constitutional carry in 2011, and while a "shall issue" law passed in Wisconsin, the push for Constitutional carry there was so strong that the shall issue law is widely considered one of the most liberal in the nation.

    Other states where Constitutional carry is under consideration include: Virginia, South Carolina, Rhode Island, Oklahoma, Ohio, Maine, Kentucky, Georgia, Iowa, and Colorado.

    Proponents for Constitutional carry claim that more guns in citizens hands will reduce crime, and that the ability to bear arms without government permission is inherent in the Second Amendment. Those who argue against this political surge profess that guns that are not in the hands of government agents are a threat to the public safety.

    Didn't happen in South Dakota and won't happen for Iowa anytime in the near future unfortunately.

    Ohio is still a long way from "Constitutional Carry". There are no bills proposed or written for it. They are still arguing on having to still inform LEOs if you are carrying, and carrying in churches is banned etc.

    It sounds like it has a grimm future for it to become reality. Living CT it would be nice to see it happen in RI and NH seeing that 1 borders me and the other is so close.

    Oklahoma's is stalled purely for politics, has passed by huge margins every time, but representatives are holding the bill hostage till they get something else they want (re-districting) this kind of representation is shameful...

    Oh, it would be so nice for MN to head that way, but sadly, I think it would be state #47 to pass that law, right before California, New York, and Illinois. Stupid scared city dwellers ruin just about everything around here.
