    Iowa isn't going to happen anytime soon. We're going to have a hard time just to amend our state constitution to guarantee our right to keep and bear arms. It has to be passed by both house and senate two consecutive years, then be put to vote by the people.

    I haven't heard much lately, but we went through the "there's going to be shootouts in the streets" talk after the shall issue law passed last year, even in rural Iowa.

    Not going to happen in Colorado any time soon thanks to our Leftist controled state senate and our Leftist governor. The anti-press has even dug up some CCW instructors who are against permit free concealed carry. They are putting their individual ability to make extra money ahead of freedom......sort of like "thirty pieces of silver." Keep shootin' and be careful of who you vote for if you value your firearms freedoms.

    When I first saw this I thought 12 states were considering disallowing concealed carry. Now I get it.

    It won't happen anytime soon in OK either. The OK governor and legislature does not want us to open carry without a concealed carry permit.

    If only all our legislators understood such plain, common-sense logic!!

    "States that have been or are considering bills in current legislative sessions include Colorado, Iowa, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota and Virgina, according to the NRA"

    They already tried to make Kentucky a constitutional carry (no permit needed) and it died in committee. I am not aware of any new effort to bring it up again. Where did they get their information from? It was tried and it failed. I hope they can try again, or at least streamline the Conceal Carry process for my state.

    The article is misleading because it gives the impression that there is some current effort going on, when as far as I know...there are no new bills or legislation introduced.

    Well,at least OK. is closer than it was.<http://www.tulsabeacon.com/?p=5820> "House Bill 2522 would allow any individual who obtains a license to carry a firearm under the Oklahoma Self Defense Act to carry the weapon either openly or concealed."

    Yeah, but thats not what the leadership of the OK legislature and our governor promised us before the last election. If this current earth shaking legislation is passed one can carry openly-but only with a concealed carry permit. What a deal.

    No 'constitutional carry' legislation has ever gained traction here in Ohio, to to my knowledge none currently exists that has a realistic chance of passing.

    Misleading thread title. No way are 12 states 'on their way' to no-permit carry, at least not presently.

    You can carry openly or concealed with a permit. There are many places in this country that would envy you.

    Most all the CCW instructors I know are against this. I wonder why?

    Reciprocity? How would that work, or is it even an issue?

    Jeff - I don't think this is related to the national CCW bill, which is what a lot of people are actually against. I believe these states are doing their own separate legislation. I wouldn't worry too much about reciprocity because places like Arizona, Alaska and Vermont(?) already have permit-less carry (which is what I should have titled the thread :) ).

    In my state, we have a permit to carry but our reciprocity is a joke, it would be great for us if our bill passed :D

    In the article it noted that Wyoming still issued permits to those who might want to have a legal permit in another state. Even though they are not required there.

    I don't think it'll happen in GA yet, but hopefully GCO will stay on them about it.

    Concerning reciprocity, the way I understand how it'd be here, we'd only have it with other states that were permitless carry. However, there would still be a permit available to keep from having to get NICS checks, and it would retain the current reciprocity (pending other states of course).


    ETA-Well, the wife got me sidetracked for a few minutes and jmr beat me to it.
