    What states have and/or are introducing Constitutional Carry legislation?

    I see here or there notes about this state or that state entering legislation for Constitutional Carry. It gets somewhat confusing trying to keep track of it all. Can we have a sticky where we can go to and see what states are either approving or entering the field?

    In the mean time, can someone surmise it for me?
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    Here is the previous thread, just so we do not have duplicates.

    I am a little less confused now, but that other thread kinda jumped around a little.

    Would like to see it as a sticky, looked past page 4 and still didnt find the thread you listed.

    Here's a good link I just got from my Utah CCW class- www.handgunlaw.us

    Montana is doing it in a very simple way. Why can't Wisconsin?

    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    Not so simple; according to the language
    OR A PERSON ELIGIBLE TO OBTAIN A PERMIT UNDER 45-8-321 WHO HAS COMPLETED A COURSE AS REQUIRED UNDER 45-8-321(3)(B) OR (3)(C) AND HAS IN THE PERSON'S POSSESSION EVIDENCE OF COMPLETION OF THE COURSE;
    You have to have completed a course of instruction and carry your "papers"....The NRA strikes again....

    The best information I have been able to find is:

    Four states have constitutional carry on the "books". Alaska, Vermont, Arizona and Wyoming.

    The following states have bills in process mandating constitutional carry. Colorado, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Utah, Tennesee.

    Legislation is stalled in Kentucky

    Legislation being considered in Idaho.

    Minnesota is unique in that Minnesota doesn't have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms amendmnet in it's constitution so it has to soley base it's agument on the seond amendment of the U.S. constitution. Constitutional carry will probably be a tough fight in Minnesota.

    Maine has two bills, HB 488 and HB 923 that are in committee that would eliminate the illegality of concealed carry.
