Gun ownership. It's literally the law in Kennesaw. But what do residents of "Guntown USA" think of a bill that would let law-abiding Georgia citizens carry concealed weapons without a permit? State Rep.

Everyone has the RIGHT to carry any way they choose. The problem is, we have let hack politicians write laws to the contrary.

More it is that we don't know what those 'hacks' write, and they desire to keep the lot of us just as ignorant as they might.
.
And when we complain? Why, they tell us that 'we agreed' with those laws, if only that we elected them to office!
.
All the more reason —I say— that ALL law should be put before the people in quarterly plebiscites, where NOT LESS than 80% of =ALL= registered voters MUST vote in the affirmative for the law in order for that law to pass.
.
AND, EVERY law —save the respective constitutions— EXPIRES every three years, unless that law receives the very same 80% SHOW AND VOTE of ALL REGISTERED VOTERS.
.
Lacking that, the law is nullified and may not again be put before the voters for a period of 20 years.

I'm with you guys, open carry rights should be honored everywhere and people's licensed privilege to carry concealed should be as well.

Bruce V says "Everyone has the RIGHT to carry any way they choose."

Then you say "I'm with you guys"...then contradict yourself by putting restrictions on the "right". Speak with forked tongue much...?

There is no stipulation in the 2nd Amendment as to the manner of "bearing" arms. There is no restriction against "concealed". Laws that criminalize "concealed carry" are an "infringement" on the right of the people to "bear". No where is the State given authority to "license" this "right".

Read about "The Sullivan Act" for a good look at gun control. Tim Sullivan was one of the last of the Tammany Hall crew and put the screws to all New Yorkers so only HIS people could get a gun permit. 101 years on the books this year and only getting worse in New York.

Correct, when bearing arms, such as wearing one openly on the hip or slung from one's shoulder, then this is what is meant. Carrying arms concealed, is state regulated priviledge. Two different concepts, thanks for pointing that out for us today.

Of course. An armed citizenry is the original homeland security. You aren't the only one who should be allowed to carry a gun.

That needs to change from a privilige requiring a permit. It used to be a right but unfortunately it was usurped by the turn of the century. However, 3 states (AZ/VT/Alaska) have ressurected that right.

Thx. I didn't knew Wyoming was included. My state is working on Consitutional Carry too and I hope it will be the 5th state. Once that happens, no need to renew my permit unless I am going to a reciprocity state that recognizes the permit of my state.

If nothing else, you're consistent. A consistent twit. Too bad your GED didn't teach you the difference between a right and a privilege.

Thanks again on pointing out how ignorant you are and showing us your inability to comprehend. Since you couldn't even comprehend what I wrote, I'm not surprized that you can't comprehend the 2nd Amendment.

There is no requirement to be in order to exercise the individual right to keep and bear arms. What part of "Heller" didn't you understand...?

The national defense act provides the full on definition of militia to include ALL able bodied persons without discrimination against citizenship, or sex;

"The militia of the United States shall consist of all able-bodied male citizens of the United States and all other able-bodied males who have or shall have declared their intention to become citizens of the United States, who shall be more than eighteen years of age..."

That said, the privilege to CARRY concealed is a state authority as the right to BEAR arms means open style BEARING, not concealed style CARRYING.

WRONG again. Once again, there is NO stipulation as to the manner of "bearing" your arms in the 2nd Amendment. There is however the final words, a restriction against the gov't, that states this "right" shall not be infringed. Laws passed that criminalize any manner of bearing arms is an infringement of thet right.

Where does this "authority" of the State come from to infringe on an individual right enumerated in the Bill of Rights...?

Exactly, the right to own and openly bear arms shall not be infringed, concleaded CARRY is not right...the amendment is clear in that it does not protect the concept of privileged concealed carry of arms, hence their regulation at the state level.
