Am I missing something?
Since 36 states "shall issue" carry permits (and another 10 have some restricted right to carry), why not get 2/3 of the states to pass a new consititutional amendment to expressly allow concealed carry?

I think part of the problem is that certain states, even though they have RTC laws, have turned back over to the democrats and would be hard pressed to pass RTC again let alone constitutional amendment. Just my thoughts though.

I don't buy it. 39 states have recently passed a "Protection of Marraige Act".

Because it would be redundant. We already have "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." and obviously it is being infringed because we are not allowed to bear arms to protect ourselves even though protecting ourselves, our loved ones, and our property is our responsability.

We don't need a new amendment, we need to have all of these faciasts violating the Constitution to be arreseted and tried for treason. But even treason only gets you a slap on the wrist now :cuss:

Sure, it would be redundant, it could be worded to reflect the fact that it is intended to undo the misinterpretation of the second amendment by the courts.

I've never looked, so I'll have to reserve judgement; I can assure you, however, they've made it abundantly clear for decades they have neither brains nor spines.

What's actually needed isn't more legislation, but a single Supreme Court ruling in favor of the Second Amendment. That saidâ„¢, I'm not holding my breath while waiting for it to be announced.
