After reading the letter issued by the ASP, I'm considering writing a letter to the Arkansas Attorney General as suggested byLieutenant Gentry of the ASP, and asking for an explanation of how a handgun fails to fall under the category of "weapon".
Here in Missouri, we are licensed to conceal "weapons". This means we can conceal tasers, hatchets, nunchuks, and any and ALL manner of weapons which happen to include, as a subcategory, handguns.
Evidently, Lt. Gentry seems to believe (and infers that the Attorney General also believes) that handguns are not weapons.
I'd be interested in hearing how she explains handguns not falling into the category of weapons. I think I'll drop her and the Atty. General an inquiry as I would be prevented from visiting my southern neighbors in Arkansas. I'll keep everyone updated if I receive a response.
