    FL Rep. David Smith: "OC would spook tourists!"

    Also: "I support constitutional carry, not open carry." Funny. Here in tourist-heavy New Hampshire, foreign tourists from anti-gun locations like Quebec and Massachusetts would be disappointed if they didn't see any bearded hillbillies carrying pistols. (Waves hand!)...

    Georgia moving towards permit-free carry

    I don't follow Georgia law. I don't know what other restrictions they have, so I'm just referring to this bill as "permit-free", rather than Constitutional carry. https://thereload.com/georgia-senate-passes-permitless-gun-carry-bill/

    Kentucky AG: cities can't ban carry by employees

    I'm not from Kentucky, so I don't know if there's any controversy about this opinion. Any such local authority is strictly limited, the attorney general’s office said in its review requested by the city of Ashland. State law allows local governments to prohibit concealed weapons in buildings...

    Speaking of forum admin issues: map updates

    With Tennessee and Texas, we're now up to 21 constitutional carry states. The OCDO map shows 11 gold states. :/ https://opencarry.org/maps/constitutional-carry/

    Iowa county sues citizens for asking them to obey the law

    Iowa passed a preemption statute that says political subdivisions may not ban firearms in public building unless they provide security screening. Monroe County banned firearms in all areas of the county courthouse, including non-court areas, and does not provide any security screening. Iowa...

    Florida Republicans blocking pro-gun legislation

    Rep. Anthony Sabatini has introduced bills for constitutional carry, campus carry, and a repeal of the ban on selling guns or ammo during declared states of emergency. With supermajorities in both chambers and the governorship, Florida Republican leadership are still blocking reforms...

    Man arrested for open carry in VA public park

    The occasion was a campaign stop by Libertarian VP nominee Spike Cohen. I will leave discussion of Virginia statutes to those who know them (I don't), but the young man did a good job of stating his objections. Yesterday at my campaign bus stop in Newport News, VA, a supporter of mine was...

    VCDL and PVC in the news

    I haven't explored the details of the proposal, and I will leave that to the VA folks. "Yesterday, in the first event of its kind in Virginia, 300 to 400 gun rights supporters crowded into the plaza outside of Northern Virginia’s Alexandria City Municipal Center to protest a planned vote by the...

    Gun control "special session": closed in less than a minute

    While Evers’ executive order required the Legislature to meet, it did not have the power to make it actively debate the bills. The result was two sessions promptly gaveled in and out in the Assembly and Senate by the GOP majority in less than a minute...

    Sununu vetoes last three anti-gun bills

    Gov. Sununu had already vetoed the red flag bill disguised as protecting vulnerable adults from financial abuse. Now he's vetoed the remaining three anti-gun bills (UBC, waiting period, and school zone gun ban). https://www.governor.nh.gov/news-media/press-2019/20190809-vetos.htm

    Dem legislators react to pro-gun citizen

    So as you might know, four anti-gun bills passed in the Democrat-controlled NH legislature this year. Gov. Sununu already vetoed one of them, and then the President of the Senate (Donna Soucy) and Speaker of the House (Steven Shurtleff) sat on the other three for 39 days. More than a hundred...

    It's time to be vigilant in New Hampshire

    With the change in leadership in the General Court, we can expect a strong push to roll back gun rights in the Granite State. One of the first moves expected is the adoption of rules prohibiting or limiting carry in the State House -- at least by legislators, if not the general public. The...

    Open carry event at Ohio State

    While this was a a rifle carry event, the organizer says he carries his pistol everywhere that he's legally allowed. I think they did an excellent job of tweaking noses: a group of people of color engaging in what is normally seen as a white people's cause, and pointing out the hypocrisy of...

    Update maps and NH information!

    Permitless carry was signed into law by Gov. Sununu on February 22nd, but the maps still show NH as "open carry friendly", and the NH info still says a permit is required to carry in a vehicle. That hasn't been true for three months now.
