Gun owners confident ahead of key Constitutional Carry vote

2A activist Guy Relford says that this year’s legislation is an improvement over the permitless carry bill introduced last year, which passed the House but failed to get a vote in the state Senate. Gone is the requirement that the state develop a new database that would allow police officers to access the criminal history of individuals pulled over for traffic offenses, which several Second Amendment organizations had objected to. But something else has changed since the defeat of the permitless carry legislation introduced last year: five states have adopted Constitutional Carry laws of their own, bringing the total number of permitless carry states to 21.
