K-12: Carry Carry Specifically Authorized by Statute For Permit Holders

NOTE: The Federal Gun-Free School Zones Act Restricts Carry to RESIDENT Permit Holders

Texas. This kind of sums it up for us


Not really, in Texas you have to have a License to Carry a handgun open carry or concealed. Texas is not as free with gun laws as one may think.

I’ve lived in Virginia and liberal utopia Washington state and neither required a permit to open carry. When I lived in Va you could open carry in a bar.

CCP in Bama takes about 30 minutes to get, in my experience.

Open carry without permit. Conceal carry permit not terribly difficult to get. Castle doctrine.

Stand your ground
You can take your guns with you in your vehicles and boat with no permit; they're an extension of you house/property

We are also open carry (but you are asking for trouble if you do so).

re: Gun laws in your state.
In Texas you can only open carry if you have a permit to conceal carry?

Dafuq would you open carry for then?

quote:

1. Arizona
It’s hard to improve upon Arizona’s gun laws but they seem to make an effort every year. In 2017, Governor Ducey signed legislation into law preventing local governments from enacting background check requirements for gun ownership. Arizona maxes-out in every category thanks to its permitless (and permitted) carry, very strong self-defense laws, hands-off NFA and Black Gun policies and an overall hassle-free landscape for gun owners. The Phoenix area likely has the most active competitive shooting cultures in the nation and there are countless places to shoot in the deserts if you’re the kind that likes to take long shots. The hunting opportunities are some of the best in the country, though tags can be a challenge to draw, so if you’re a sportsman as well as a gun owner you’re in luck. The gap between Arizona and other states in the top-10 has certainly narrowed in the past few years but we have no justification for taking the winning slot away from our reigning champion.


quote:

50. New York
The April, 2017 indictment of four individuals in-connection with a bribery scheme involving the NYPD’s Licensing Division is probably a surprise to no one and is a classic example of the corruption potential of “may issue” CCW laws. Getting a permit in NY is hit or miss and going into “The City” requires a separate permit that you apparently have to bribe someone to obtain. Magazines are restricted to ten-rounds (the seven-round restriction was struck down by the courts) and all NFA items are banned—an effort to exempt suppressors died in the state Senate this year. Although a legitimate gun culture exists Upstate, New York politics remain dominated by NYC and its suburbs. There is a reason that firearm manufacturers have fled the Empire State.

True. I’ll do it hunting, but that’s about it.

re: Gun laws in your state.
Georgia's is similar to Utah.

Must get a CCP and you can't carry:

A Gov't building

in a courthouse

In a jail or prison

In a place of worship, unless the governing body or authority of the place of worship permits the carrying of weapons or long guns by license holders. A license holder caught violating this provision is not subject to arrest and but shall be fined not more than $100.

In a state mental health facility

On the premises of a nuclear power facility

Within 150 feet of a polling location when elections are being conducted

At school, you can keep a gun in a car LOL


Notes about Deadly force:
No duty to retreat: If you have determined you need to use lethal force (as stated in one of the underlined "Defense" sections immediately above) you do not have to try to retreat before using that force. This is an a part of a set of laws known as "Stand Your Ground," "Shoot First", or "License To Murder". In Georgia, there has never been a duty to retreat as per common law, however this was officially codified into law and went into effect July 1st, 2006 (basically, courts in GA have never required retreat unless the person was the aggressor, this common law creation of the courts was written into the official law in 2006).
