He also is proposing the cost of the initial 5-year pistol permit fee from $140 to $370.

    JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri became the latest state to allow residents to carry a concealed weapon without a permit when lawmakers supported the change Wednesday. Tense debate during the legislature's annual veto override session encompassed themes of race and class as lawmakers clashed over whether to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of Senate Bill 656. In the days leading up to the session the debate drew national attention, with organizations on both sides of the issues working to influence lawmakers. Another controversial part of the bill is its "stand your ground" provision, which will allow residents to use deadly force...

  • Concealed carry, California and the 9th Circuit’s misrepresentation of the facts

    Fox News ^ | June 10, 2016 | John R Lott Jr
    Thursday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 7-4 decision that Americans don’t have a right to carry concealed handguns for protection. Since California bans people from openly carrying guns, their decision amounted to prohibiting people from carrying guns at all (whether openly or concealed). It is clear that a judge’s political affiliation determines whether he thinks that people have a right to defend themselves. Democratic judges are now moving to overturn recent Supreme Court decisions that struck down bans on guns. Last year, about 0.24 percent of adult Californians had a concealed handgun permit. In the rest...

    Despite a recent court order, Washington, D.C., is still refusing to issue concealed-carry permits to its residents, according to Devin Watkins, who attempted to obtain a permit last week. Watkins, a columnist at the federalist.com, wrote that when he went to apply for the permit, police officers at the station told him they had been ordered by D.C.'s attorney general to ignore the court order and continue to deny applications.

    A Bergen County man has lost his bid to fight the confiscation of his guns and ammunition following a domestic violence arrest and charges that he had high-capacity magazines and hollow-point ammunition. An appellate decision on Tuesday upheld a Superior Court judge’s earlier ruling that Arthur Vinogradsky was no longer qualified to be a gun owner even though the charges against him were eventually dropped. It’s the latest example of New Jersey’s gun-control laws, which are among the strictest in the nation. In New Jersey, residents must apply to their local police departments to obtain permits to buy, own or...

    A federal judge has ruled that a key provision of the District’s new gun law is likely unconstitutional, ordering D.C. police to stop requiring individuals to show “good reason” to obtain a permit to carry a firearm on the streets of the nation’s capital. In imposing a preliminary injunction pending further litigation, U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon reignited a running battle over the Second Amendment in the District and its courts where three different judges have now weighed in with varying conclusions. “The enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table,” Leon wrote in a...

    Gun sales are up in Minnesota, so much so that some counties are having trouble keeping up with permit applications. Hennepin became the latest county to expand their permit application services, opening a second full-time permit to carry office in Brooklyn Park this week. "We've seen an exponential increase," Sheriff Rich Stanek said. In fact, the Sheriff's Office released numbers Tuesday showing they've seen a 16 percent increase in permit applications since 2014. Stanek said some attribute the rise in applications to recent mass shootings, a rise in violent crime, or Obama administration policies. Regardless, Stanek said the increase does...

    On April 20, the Oklahoma Senate voted 37-9 to pass legislation recognizing that the Second Amendment is a sufficient open carry permit. The legislation, HB 3098, had already passed in the House by a vote of 73-15. According to News 9, the Senate passed the bill via “a procedural move that forces the bill into conference committee” for one final look before it heads to Governor Mary Fallin (R). If changes are made to the bill while in committee, it will be brought back to the Floor for another vote. The decision to return to committee came after some senators...

    The Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday passed a bill that would allow people to openly carry firearms without a permit and without training. A total of 34 organizations — including the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Oklahoma State Troopers Association, universities, chambers of commerce and hospitals — sent a letter to Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman in opposition to House Bill 3098 and House Joint Resolution 1009, a proposed ballot measure intended to make it harder to regulate guns. House Bill 3098 was approved 37-9. The joint resolution was not considered. Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, said the bill won't expand...

When it comes to predictions on what sci-fi method might bring you hot pizza, aspirin, groceries or new shoes, some experts bet that delivery robots rolling down sidewalks will beat out airborne couriers. Getting your purchases to your front door — the “last mile” challenge — is an obsession throughout the multibillion-dollar logistics and e-commerce industries. While Amazon, Google and Walmart pursue flying delivery drones, some much smaller companies are quietly working on simpler autonomous solutions anchored on...

    Governor C.L Butch Otter reluctantly signed SB 1389, the permitless "Constitutional carry" bill that was passed by the Idaho legislature. His office sent the transmittal letter(pdf) to the President of the Senate today, the 25th of March, 2016. Idaho becomes the eighth state to restore permitless or "Constitutional" carry. Vermont never restricted concealed carry from those who were not felons or mentally defective. Governor Otter stated that he signed the bill with some reluctance, because the bill did not have a training requirement for the carry of firearms. There has never been a legal requirement for training in order to...

    WEST VIRGINIA (WVVA) West Virginia will soon be among seven other states where residents can carry a concealed weapon without a permit. This comes after West Virginia Lawmakers voted this weekend to override Governor Earl Ray Tomblin's veto on House Bill 4145. The override on Tomblin's veto means that if you're older than 21 and live in West Virginia, permitless concealed carry will be law in 90 days. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin originally veto'd the bill with safety concerns. The West Virginia House and West Virginia Senate both voted to override Tomblin's veto.
