    North Dakota Will Become the 13th Permitless State.

    On August 1, North Dakota will join the ranks. That is great news and we now have over one fourth of the nation with permitless carry

    Hard to imagine the speed at which this is proceeding. Just 20 years ago when Vermont stood alone who would have believed it? For now, it's for North Dakota residents only, as is the case in Wyoming and Idaho. One step at a time.

    We're chipping away at the Left's agenda one stroke of the mason's hammer at a time. Once the RKBA gets carved in stone, I'll feel better about our personal freedom and the security of our union.

    Alabama permitless carry bill filed

    I saw on the NRA-ILA website that there's been a permitless carry bill filed in the Alabama legislature.

    https://www.annistonstar.com/news/st...e2b61312e.html

    Allen has filed a bill for the 2018 legislative session that would allow pistol owners to carry their weapons concealed in most public places in the state without a permit. Current law requires concealed carriers to get a permit from their local sheriff. Sheriffs can deny a permits to people they consider to be a danger to themselves or others, based on court records involving a personís mental state.

    Itís already legal to openly carry a gun in a holster in most public places, following the passage of a 2013 open-carry bill. Gun rights advocates claim open-carry was always legal here, though before 2013 wearing a gun in public would often lead to a fine.

    Indiana General Assembly committee debates permitless carry

    An Indiana General Assembly committee is debating the recommendation of taking a permitless carry bill to the full assembly for the 2018 session.

    http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/g...8f0d2161a.html

    The recommendation is due on October 12.

    So, permitless carry seems unlikely in Indiana this year but may have a better chance next year.

    Alabama Legislature Task Force Debates Permitless Carry

    As seen on the NRA-ILA news feed:

    https://www.annistonstar.com/news/st...9fc4da5bf.html

    Law enforcement officials have generally opposed efforts to end the permit requirement. The permits cost $25 in most counties, with the money going to sheriff's offices. State law allows sheriffs to deny permits to people with mental health issues or drinking problems, though the 2013 law made it harder for sheriffs to deny permits on those grounds.
    We have a legislature task force forced to perform the task of debating the discussion on the debate on whether or not to discuss the task of forcing the discussion of the debate to the full legislature and it's being held up on if this will cost the county sheriffs' a few bucks in their annual budget? Have I got that correct?

    "If I were to submit to you that for $1.66 a month, you could make your community safer, is that too high a price to pay?" said Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones, who represented the Sheriffs Association on the 19-member panel. Jones didn't offer any proposals to tighten gun regulations, but did say the current permit law should stay in place.
    How does charging law abiding citizens money to do what the Constitution has explicitly protected make anyone safer? What do you have to say on that, Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones? If money is a problem for the sheriff then perhaps he should do a better job of managing the funds he has, ask the legislature to allocate more, or step down and let someone with better management skills take over.

    With 1/4 of the states now lacking any requirement to have a permit to carry a concealed weapon the claims that a permit requirement keeps people safe is going to be very difficult to defend. If the Sheriff Jones really thinks this piece of paper keeps people safe then perhaps he should lobby for the permit being free. Maybe even pay people to apply. If I said it'd cost the sheriff department $1.66 per month to keep the county safer then would it not be worth the expense? That cuts both ways, Sheriff.
