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.

you can bear something anywhere dick. If I can bear having a gun in my keister than I legally can "bear" it there. There are no stipulations in the 2nd amendment and by trying to put them there your just helping the liberals with their agenda. So if you cherish your freedom and are truly a member of the gun community you would realize it black and white no gray area.

<quoted text>Where? It's plain and simple, open carry (bearing) is a right, concealed carry is state licensed privilege.
But the second amendment says keep and bear not keep and bear openly. Not be infringed does mean the government has no right to license any part of it or call it a privilege. The right belongs to the people not the government. The power to infringe was never given to them.

Concealed carry is not a constitutional right, concealed carry is a state licensed privilege. Open BEARING of a firearm is your right, a rifle or shotgun on a sling hung from your shoulder, or a side arm worn in a holster on your hip beared in plain sight, just like a good militia man, not some Benedict Arnold spying, pants sagging, hoodie wearing hootchie.

You can keep repeating this lie until the cows come home. It will NEVER be the truth no matter how many times you repeat it.

Ever think it's like dealing with Life Wad or whatever incarnation du jour he is using at the time?

I have asked you repeatedly to show where the second amendment limits or gives the power to the government to limit where or how I carry, you have yet to produce how you came about your definition of BEAR or KEEP. Is it just because you say so or do you have a credible reference?

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.
Richard you’re amazing. How can someone possibly be so wrong and yet convinced they’re right? Bearing arms simply means carrying a weapon. Method of carry is irrelevant. In fact the word arms doesn’t mean firearms, it means weapon which of course includes firearms. Technically speaking, knives and other weapons should be immune to government interference.

Funny thing, when I was living in Georgia it was perfectly legal for me to carry a concealed firearm (or open carry) Despite that, it was illegal for me to carry my Benchmade Infidel concealed. Yet, it was perfectly legal to carry it in an open fashion. I believe that flaw in the law has since been corrected.

Prove to us bearing arms means open carry only. I bet you can’t.

you show me where these stipulations exist in our constitution and I'll back you 100%. But you interpreting these regulations are no different Than the liberals interpreting all the other bs gun restrictions. I don't see anywhere in the 2nd amendment that I can't own a rifle with less than a 16" barrel. But if I give the good old US govt $200 it's ok. The bill of rights was written in plain text for a reason. So no slimy govt weasel could twist it around to fit their own agenda. Your obviously intelligent I don't understand why you can't understand something so simple. Show is some proof to back your claims. Our proof is written in the 2nd amendment.

It's simple, sue your state for licensing concealed carry PRIVILEDGES in federal court for violating your alleged right.
