  • charles wunderlich

    Iwas wondering would a reservist who is a military police officer have the same right to carry concealed weapon out of state the way civilian police do

  • Travis

    Travis If it’s a right to bear arms then concealed shouldn’t be hard to get if you already went thru the whole process of getting your firearms I just think if it’s expose to public then it would raise concerns of other people about safety..
