"VCDL declared its aim to "make Virginia both a 'shall accept' & 'constitutional carry' state this session."
+1000000 for constitutional carry, no permits for CC I would love it... But this such a big of a bill, I have heard about it just today. So they will try to pass it on July 1 2011?
Oh I just found it >

This is the new wording for it.

Wait would you have to be 21 to conceal if this passed or 18?
Looking at NRA...
"Arizona: House approves Constitutional carry bill
The Arizona House voted Thursday to make the state the third in the nation to allow people to carry concealed weapons without a permit, sending the governor a bill that would allow Arizonans to forego background checks and classes that are now required. The legislation, approved by the House 36-19 without discussion, would make it legal for most U.S. citizens 21 or older to carry a concealed weapon in Arizona without the permit now required."
