    What does it say of an elected official afraid to face his armed electorate?
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    Utah is one---- NOT only WHERE but WHEN and During said meetings as well!!!!!!!!

    Permitted Carry in schools IS LAWFUL--- and Utah's permitting laws DON"t require concealment!

    Also, fully legal to be in a bar/restaurant or any place else where liquor, beer, wine, or other intoxicating substances may be purchased or consumed while armed. DUI/DWI standard applies while armed--- so keep the BAC < .08 and you'll be good to go. While I personally don't drink these substances and strongly suggest that one NOT be armed while consuming or under the influence, this is my personal opinion. You each get to make your own decisions on these matters!

    Other thing to add: No signage in UTAH on private property restricting the carry of firearms has the force of law behind it. Threat of trespass remains but only if one does not leave when instructed to do so and that is NOT a firearm crime!

    Yep, we live in a beautiful place. (but it rains every day and you don't want to move here.)
    I am on the list for the "legislative challenge" we have going here. We are going to remind them just who owns the State House.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands.

    Virginia allows carry in the General Assembly Building with a CC permit. Also CC/OC in restaurants. You may drink if you OC when you entered the restaurant, and remain OC. Don't get drunk! As with Utah, "no signage on private property restricting the carry of firearms has the force of law behind it. Threat of trespass remains but only if one does not leave when instructed to do so and that is NOT a firearm crime!"

    MO is a no no except for the elected critters who lurk there.

    We do in Idaho. I wouldn't be surprised if Idaho was in the number one spot for open carry freedom. Other states are better when it comes to concealed carry than Idaho, but open carry here is so unregulated.

    Seperate line for CHL holders. DPS does a quick verification of status and then good to go.

    Same for Virginia on Lobby Day (when hordes descend on the General Assembly Building to buttonhole their elected representatives). What's possibly the best part of it all is the high likelihood of someone standing in the non-gun line making some comment about getting a gun so next year they can get through the lines without having to wait so long.

    (Actually, most of the time they just check the CHP to see it is not expired, without checking to see the name and address matches the DL. As close to "flashing the badge" as we are going to get.)

    stay safe.

    So, you have to "prove" you are legal? Based on what law?

    In Utah no permit required to OC in the State Capitol Building and for those with permits--- no requirement to conceal!

    In Virginia the state is excluded from preemption.

    The "rule" is a Joint Committee decision that allows those with CHPs to carry in the GA and Capital Bldg.....and they may OC or CC. The senate chamber no guns rule is of that body's decision.

    Hangnails can be brutal. That and some people consider the lack of a good manicure as being life threatening

    Was the lack of a "good manicure" to be a threat to the owner of the nails or others?

    To a set of nail clippers, everything looks like it needs to be "clipped" - imagine a woman with PMS carrying these in a legislative body.
