The movement to enact legal and universal concealed carry of firearms is growing with new laws being considered in at least five new states.

Constitutional carry is, of course, the idea that Americans have Constitutional right to carry a concealed weapon for self-protection without begging government to be allowed to do so.

Constitutional carry supporters feel that the Second Amendment is an automatic right, not one Americans need to go begging government officials for. And the movement is growing.

Per Breitbart News:

In Alabama, ABC 33/40 reports that two bills–House Bills 44 and 66–have been filed, each of which would eliminate the need to ask the state government for a permit before being allowed to legally carry a gun concealed for self-defense.

In Georgia, Gov. Brian Kemp (R) is pledging to work with the legislature to get constitutional carry to his desk.

On December 19, 2021, Breitbart News cited a South Florida Sun Sentinel article noting Florida is on the precipice of doing away with its requirement that law-abiding citizens get a permit from the government in order to exercise Second Amendment rights.

Florida’s move toward constitutional carry is being spearheaded by Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R). His bill would secure constitutional carry and legalize the open carry of firearms for self-defense as well. (Florida is one of a handful of states that does not have open carry.)

The NRA-ILA reports that constitutional carry legislation was put forward in Nebraska on January 5, 2022. The legislation is sponsored by state Senator Tom Brewer (R).

Constitutional carry legislation passed the Ohio Senate in December 2021. The NRA-ILA notes that the Ohio constitutional carry legislation, Senate Bill 215, “Allows a law-abiding adult who is at least 21 years of age, and legally allowed to possess a firearm, to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission….Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing concealed handgun license system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so.”

Constitutional carry is already enacted in 21 states, and growing.

Breitbart reported that the states include: “Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”
