More states allowing permitless gun carry, embracing self defense as ‘natural born’ right

By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Monday, October 3, 2016
Amid the rising number of Americans licensed to carry a concealed handgun, more states are passing laws that don’t require a permit to carry firearms, embracing the view that self-defense is a “natural born” right.

Missouri became the fourth state this year to approve a so-called “constitutional carry” law when Republican legislators overrode a veto by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon on Sept. 15, making permitless carry legal. West Virginia, Mississippi and Idaho also have adopted constitutional carry laws in 2016, bringing the total number of such states to 12.

“States that focus on freedom realize that if self-defense truly is a natural-born right, and the Second Amendment truly affirms that natural-born right, you shouldn’t have to ask the government for permission to exercise it,” said Tim Schmidt, president of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association in West Bend, Wisconsin. “Kind of like you don’t have to ask the government to exercise the First Amendment.”

I wonder what the chances are Trump will actually follow through on his promise to push for a national reciprocity law?

It would be fun to watch, if a bit messy.

Let me anticipate: they will run around destroying property and killing randomly to protest the danger of legally owned firearms.

I'm all for it.  Paying $50 in Virginia to exercise my 2nd amendment right ought to be challenged too!

When did it become a "right" to only those who can afford it?
