Nothing in NC is major :p, but every city here allows CCW as required by state law. Our largest is Charlotte with population ~600k I believe (26th largest in US)

The ones located in states which allow "average" citizens the right to bear arms.

Michigan has a preemption law, where cities can't make laws more restrictive than state law. So Detroit, and every other city in Michigan.

Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburg, Philly, Dallas, Memphis, Nashville, Indianapolis, Miami, Tampa, Charlotte, Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, and probably many others.

I live in Ventura Calif. about 45 minutes north of L.A. I have one, though I'm not sure one would call Ventura a "major" city...

I'd say almost all of them that are in states that allow concealed carry. In Ohio, where I am, you can carry in every locale, other than restricted sites (bars, court, etc.). So that means Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo, etc.

Seattle!

You go to your local PD.
You give them your fingerprints.
You pays your money.
You go home.
30 days later they mail it to you.
You put it in your wallet and start carrying.

As others have said it goes by state not city. NV has shall issue so Reno and Vegas are both good.

You can carry legally in St. Louis.

Just not with a St. Louis-issued Missouri permit. They're still making people send their $$ out of state.

PA is strange...

Philadelphia, the foundation of freedom, has become so bastardized that its the MOST restricted city in Pennsylvania...

Pittsburgh...
Sherriff's office, $19, 2 references, 20 minutes, CCW on the way out

Not necessarily.

It goes by state IF the state is shall-issue, and IF the state has a preemption law. Rhode Island, for example, is not shall-issue. Most of the smaller towns will issue, but you can't CCW in Providence even with a permit valid elsewhere in the state. I've heard the same is true about Portland, ME.

Quote-"It goes by state IF the state is shall-issue, and IF the state has a preemption law." which ,in essense IIRC,says the individual cities and counties are governed by state law and federal law and cannot make further restrictions.
Like Gem says:www.packing.org - check the states individually cause there are differences.

I travel some in the spring and summer for business and to the best of my knowledge from what I have discerned from each website of the states I travel,Florida,Georgia,Alabama,Tennessee, Kentucky,and Indiana,all recognize my Florida CWP and all have the preemption law .

The heck of it all is once I missed my turn in Indiana and crossed the bridge into Illinois and instantly became illegal.

Philadelphia is shall issue and has been since the State Supreme Court ruled that the city cannot pre-empt state law. Go to Spring Garden Street, fill out the form, pay your $19 and CCW is yours within the 45 day period required by law.

You can get one in New York, but I read a quote on a websight that I still like to the day.

"In order to get a CCW in New York, god himself must come from the heavens and lay it at your feet"

How are you defining "major"??? :confused:

Above a certain population? The 20 biggest cities? Those with an NFL franchise? How?

Anywhere in CT - Hartford, Bridgeport and New Haven are the biggest things we got. All good places to CCW.

We just lost a husband AND wife jewelry store team to a BG in Fairfield. He (the shooter) WAS from NY though. I Don't think we got him yet either.

"In order to get a CCW in New York, god himself must come from the heavens and lay it at your feet" The quote should read New York City, although not completely true. Fame or wealth seem sufficient to obtain a permit in the city Many celebrities are rumored to have permits [the permits are not public records]. Howard Stern is supposedly among the elite -- death threats, dontchaknow.

How bout Miami.

And here in Northern Virginia we have more people than in our more famous neighbor across the Potomac. Alexandria, Virginia has a popultion of 128,283, Arlington, Virginia has a population of 189,453, and Fairfax County / Tyson's Corner has a population of 969,749 people more than Washington, D.C. itself. These figures are as of the 2000 census and have probably grown by a total of a couple of hundred thousand since then. Washington, D.C., by comparison, only has 563,384 (as of the 2000 census - and that number is probably even smaller now).

Anyway, as much as the liberals hate it, all of Virginia is shall issue CHL (concealed handgun license - it doesn't cover other weapons) and the state generally ranks only next to Vermont and Alaska in its willingness to recognize the 2nd Amendment.
