The above post was poorly worded. I am at work and just got interrupted and really didn't study what I wrote.
Yes, I am referring to McDonald Vs Chicago case in a way. The question is for Arkansas. We tend to get upset about the Fed's restricting2A but over look the State level. Arkansas has quite a few restrictions of where and when a person can and can not carry. I can't carry at any sporting event or at a parade to give some examples.

I know that you are busy and receive quite a number of e-mails and my even just delete this one without opening it, but I have a few concerns that I would like answers too:
Why is Arkansas one of only seven states that I can not carry my firearm in the open?
Why are we in Arkansas not able to protect ourselves in so many venues; ie, church, parades, etc.
What can I do to help you to introduce some bills such as Arkansas State Rep. Steve Harrelson, D-Texarkana, did.
Why do we to pay a tax exercise our 2nd Amendment rights?
I know you are an NRA member and stand for the 2 Amendments but here in Arkansas we are not able to exercise those rights without going through the Government and paying a tax. You have pledged to lower or keep our taxes low, why not start with getting rid of the Concealed Carry Tax?
Above isthe copy of the e-mail sent to my State Rep.
Is there more I can do?
