Statutes (which aren't law) only apply to those that consent to be governed. Traffic laws are statutes. Under common law the judge is the sovereign of the court so it would be up to the judge to decide who gets to carry, and if you don't like it then you replace the judge.
A citizen is referring to someone who is a sovereign, if you don't know what it means to be a sovereign, then you aren't. If you don't want to pay tickets you don't have to.
