The 5 worst shall issue CCW states

Thank God I'm alive!
5. Missouri: Missouri's inclusion on this list might surprise a few people, but I included it because I dislike its provision that makes carrying while riding on public transportation a felony. That excludes many business travelers in both Kansas City and St. Louis, which last year was ranked the most dangerous city in the nation. How are bus riders supposed to protect themselves if they can't carry while going from point A to point B?

4. New Mexico: New Mexico is the only state whose permit only allows people to carry the caliber they qualify with during their training, and all smaller calibers. Also, anyone carrying concealed in New Mexico is only allowed to carry one concealed gun at a time. Finally, prior to the law being changed last year, concealed carry in establishments that sold alcohol, even for off-premises consumption (such as gas stations) was a felony; open carry in these places is still a felony.

3. Georgia: In Georgia, it is illegal to carry concealed at "'public gatherings'" which include, but shall not be limited to..." That language in Georgia's concealed carry law has entrapped many otherwise law abiding citizens, some of whom have been arrested at Wal Mart for violating the "public gathering" provision. Also, it is a felony to carry while on public transportation, or for that matter, while in the parking lots of the facilities being served by public tranportation. So much for relying on public transportation if you are a permit holder.

2. Ohio: Ohio's asinine car carry provision, by itself, is enough for it to be on this list. Prior to the legislature's override of Governor Bob Taft's veto in 2006, permit holders, whether they were drivers or passengers in private vehicles, were only allowed to carry their handguns in plain sight on their person. Handguns not carried on the person could only be carried in a locked glovebox or in a lockable container. Even with the new law, which allowed permit holders to carry concealed on their persons, handguns not carried on the person can only be carried in a bag or purse, or locked away. They cannot be carried in the console or under the seat.

1. North Carolina: North Carolina's list of off limits places include public gatherings, which include, but are not limited to, funeral processions, parades, rallies and protests. Also, no carry is allowed in places that charge an admission fee, in "areas of emergencies and riots" or in places where they would be going "armed to the terror of the people." Finally concealed carry is not allowed in "financial institutions." It is virtually impossible for a law abiding citizen in North Carolina to carry over the course of the day without running afoul of the law at some point.

Missouri

Yep!!! Truly asinine. I am of the opinion that having passed this law, and since I hold a valid Missouri CCW and if allowed would have the responsibility to defend myself from attack, the state of Missouri is guaranteeing my security on public transportation and going to and from a police station. If attacked on public transportation and I survive the attack we will find out in court if the state of Missouri is responsible for my security since they have denied me the right to defend myself.

1: they MAY ISSUE you a LTC
2: if issued, its MOST LIKELY VERY RESTRICTED
3: pray that you NEVER have to use your weapon to defend yourself, you're likely to be in as much trouble with the law as the bad guys are

Actually, a couple of months ago I included Massachussetts on my list of the socialistic nine. However, if you had paid attention to the title post, you would see that Massachussetts does not belong on the list that I provided on this thread, because this thread is about the five worst SHALL ISSUE states. Massachussetts is may issue, therefore it does not belong.

Restristed carry in shall issue states

I agree that all of the laws stated above are assinine and probably a knee-jerk reaction to a very specific incident. I'm probably flagging myself here, but since I hold a CCW permit in Connecticut I will carry a weapon where and when I choose. I am a mature and responsible person. I'm also a former Marine NCO; not a "cowboy". If while in a bank or a bar and a situation occurs I will defend myself and the innocents around me. It's the right thing to do and as such chould be easily defendable in court. Who knows? Maybe it will set a new precedent for the good guys!

5 worst

New Mexico does have it's problems with CCW, but you have to remember, it's pretty new at CCW, but does have GOLD open carry status, & it is a very slow state to do anything. One problem, the legislature only meets for 30 days on even years, and only for budget/financial matters. That means that we have to wait two years (odd years) for 60 day legislative sessions that can address our collective grievences. In 2007 we did correct the carry where alcohol sales are for off-site consumption, and will make a concerted effort to make other changes in 2009. We do also have the "no carry on buses", which is one place for sure, that I would want to be carrying!
