    NRA-ILA is asking all Minnesota residents to contact their legislators to support HF 188, a bill to repeal the requirement to have a permit to carry the tools of self defense.

    Several bills came out of legislative committess this week, two of which "clean up" the recently enacted permitless carry law.

    LD 44 would lower the age of concealed carry from 21 to 18. Currently only those that have enlisted in the military may carry a concealed weapon between the ages of 18 and 21.

    LD 574 would remove the "duty to inform" for those that choose to exercise their right to carry a tool of self defense without first obtaining a permit from the state. This "duty to inform" is one of the stupidest provisions I have seen in law, I hope it is repealed quickly.

    Alabama SB24 is out of senate committee and is position to be debated by the entirety of the senate.

    The passage of SB24 would bring Alabama in line with 10 other states, including neighboring Mississippi, that already have laws allowing concealed carry without a permit for state residents and non-residents.
    10 states? I thought it was 12? I lost count somewhere. I ran out of fingers to count them all, a good problem to have IMHO.

    Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a non-partisan, grassroots organization that seeks common sense solutions to gun violence, is also in opposition to the bill. According to Anne Leader, the Alabama chapter leader, the group is choosing to stand with law enforcement.

    The NRA has posted a piece authored by Charles C.W. Cooke from National Review. He gives a nice summary of how our right to self defense has been restored in the last three decades, and what we might expect in the years to come.

    A permitless carry bill, LB 502, has been brought to the Nebraska legislature. It is not expected to be brought up for a vote.

    A veto override vote will be held on Monday.

    Considering the vote count the bill had when put before the governor there are few with confidence the veto override will pass.

    The Texas House will be debating HB 1911 in committee soon, this bill would remove the need to acquire a permit to carry to lawfully conceal and carry a sidearm. Texans should contact their legislators and urge them to support this bill.

    I find it amusing that the bill number coincides with one of the most popular models of handguns ever made. Perhaps this is a good sign.

    Arkansas has Constitutional Carry bills in the House and Senate.

    SB585 in the Senate.
    HB1994 in the House

    SD legislature has passed the permitless carry bill (HB1072), but the Gov has stated, back in early Feb., that he intends to veto it. By the votes, an override looks unlikely.

    Standing by for further standing by.

    Given the vote counts to get the bill on the governor's desk it is unlikely to see a veto override vote.
    I agree. A override is probably impossible. When you elect a Democrat Governor, this is what you get. New Hampshire only has permitless carry because they elected a Republican Governor in November.

    Listening to the debate in the committee in SD, I heard a couple good soundbites.

    "You shouldn't have to lease your rights back from the state."

    "Where open carry is lawful, you shouldn't have to pay a coat tax just because it gets cold outside." (paraphrased)



    ETA: I see that the term "coat tax" has been in use at least since 2011.

    I saw on the NRA-ILA website that the Montana Senate voted for permitless carry.

    https://www.nraila.org/articles/2017...governors-desk

    This makes two states now, with New Hampshire, where permitless carry needs only a signature from the governor to become law.

    The NRA-ILA RSS feed shows Alabama and South Dakota have permitless carry bills coming out of committees.

    A bill that would make it easier for Granite Staters to carry a concealed weapon on Thursday easily passed its final major legislative hurdle on its path toward becoming law.

    The state House of Representatives voted 200-97 in favor of the measure, which would repeal the need for a permit or license to carry a concealed handgun. There were a large number of absent state representatives, due to the powerful snowstorm slamming New Hampshire.

    It's currently in committee, but constitutional carry has been introduced in Indiana.

    My guess is two. New Hampshire and Montana. MT may be a reach with the supposedly centrist Democrat Governor.

    Any guesses as to which two? I'm guessing that New Hampshire, Montana, and then either Virginia or North Dakota will see permitless carry get passed, though not necessarily take effect, by the end of this calendar year.

    Saw this on NRA-ILA today...
    https://www.nraila.org/articles/2017...in-the-process

    On Thursday, February 9, Senate Bill 12 will be going before the full House of Representatives for a vote. If passed, SB 12 will eliminate the requirement to obtain a permit in order to lawfully carry. Gun-control advocate Michael Bloomberg has been organizing attacks against Governor Chris Sununu for his support of SB 12. Please contact Governor Sununu and thank him for supporting this critical legislation! Also, please continue contacting your state Representative and urging them to vote in favor of SB 12.
    In searching for the status on this bill I found this...
    http://www.guns.com/2017/01/11/new-h...-of-committee/

    Current Governor Chris Sununu, sworn in last week, is on the record as saying he would sign a constitutional carry bill, according to the Concord Monitor. New Hampshire gun owners remain hopeful he will keep his word if the bill finds its way to his desk.
    So it passed the Senate, is now in the House, and the Governor said he'd sign if on his desk. I'm not counting chickens yet but this egg looks ready to hatch. While Republicans don't always equal a favorable view on the right of self defense it does tend to lean that way and the Republicans do hold a majority in the NH House. I saw nothing to indicate when this vote would be held.
