    By my count, this makes 3 permitless carry bills being floated in the Legislature this session, 2 of which have zero chance, due simply to who their authors are.

    This one strikes all of 16-11-126, which will kill reciprocity. Not thought out very well.

    So they give us Constitutional carry but take away our permits that allow us to carry in other states??????

    Doesn't sound like a good plan to me...

    It really doesn't even give you constitutional carry (none of them do), as all off limits locations remain in place. You might be able to carry w/o a license, but you aren't any safer.

    Well, constitutional carry removes a requirement for a permit. How would you reciprocate a permit of a state that doesn't require permits?

    All sounds like it would rest on the Nat'l CCW Reciprocity Bill (HR38 ).... no?

    Most states that are Constitutional Carry do issue permits when requested. To let citizens of that state carry in another state that is not CC, but does recognize permits issued by the CC state.

    To my knowledge the only constitutional carry state which does not issue any kind of permit is Vermont.

    So, by removing a license requirement, we meet the terms of the Constitution? What is Constitutional about any of the three bills introduced?
