STATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION -- Article 2, Section 5.
The citizens of this State shall have the right to keep and bear arms, for their common defense.
(Excerpt) Read more at nraila.org ...
There are "no guns allowed" stickers everywhere ! What gives ? Can someone in AR tell me what the real story is here ?
Take a look at North Texas, specifically Dallas/Ft Worth and suburbs while you’re at it.
Been to Texas. I don’t like any part of it.
Northwest Arkansas is a place like no other. It’s not even a place like the rest of Arkansas. This place is beautiful. Clean, full of some good people and ripe with opportunity.
I like it here, but there are some things I can’t figure out.
I didn’t know Arkansas was that bad.
You could easily just move a few miles West and be in NE Oklahoma. Really pretty country. Rolling hills, plenty of open spaces etc. Very gun friendly.
Wallyworld HQ and the university influence??
Walmart and U. of Arkansas effect? Two large employers who are attracting many out-of-staters, likely including a lot of Regressives. They love fouling blue states, and then moving to red and purple states to sh*t in their new nests.
Go to handgunlaw.us to read up on it fully. It is long and convoluted, for sure. On the good side, they do offer an upgraded license that removes a lot of restrictions. The AR laws are way more detailed than what I deal with here in OK.
Spend a little time here.....
Thanks for that link. Apparently Arkansas is as muddled up as a pre-sandy hook Connecticut.
Unfortunately, Arkansas has a socialist streak an inch-wide and a mile deep. Texas, too.
I never regretted moving from Texas to Arkansas, but sometimes these people are just so &@$# dumb, it’s really frustrating. They never met a big government program they didn’t like.
That’s how America got Hitlery for eight years, along with the Perv.
Arizona’s a good choice for Guns.
Yeah, this is crazy.
The form itself is just a name and address form. And $15. So basically all it is is “You wanna carry on a campus? Give me fifteen smackers and consider it done”
Disappointing. Not enough for me to hate the place, but still disappointing.
What I want to know is why retired cops get HR218 Federal Concealed Weapon license good anywhere in the US and a citizen cannot get one.
The NrA is a weak kneeed lobby compared to the Police Lobby, and I bet the NrA does the bidding of the Police Lobby. That place is filled with Statists
yeah and there are only 2 major grocery chains here in NW Ar: Walmart and Harps, and 2 hard to get to Aldi stores. No competiton plus tax on food and personal property. Groceries much more expensive than Texas. And let me tell you about the Ticks !! Eat you alive make you sick and kills your pets. Ground Zero for tick borne infections. I know and so do several of my friends and associates. Medical care much better in Texas also. As for guns, Texas still friendlier. County sheriff boys will shake you down here in Arkansas.
Mississippi has open carry. Just saying
Get a place in the Sticks, live there, get yer supplies in bulk, get a Resident Combo Hunting/Fishing License and supply off of the land/water and ignore the city commies. Find and make contact with the Local Game & Fish Officer, most of them are good, fair people just dont push the Game/Fish Laws. My Brother has been living in AR since the late 70s. He will hardly leave the State. I lived there for 5 years after My divorce. Went back to TX to take care of Mom because I was the mobile Kid.
Ya got FRMail.
Just having been there riding motorcycle for a week; NW AR is awesome!
The people were friendly everywhere. Nice neck of the woods1
NW Arkansas is beautiful. I think what probably happened was that wanting to get rid of their image as hillbillies, the state started to pass rules and regulations that would discourage the traditionally tough, hardy old timers from keeping their old ways. Sounds like wealthy Rinos and liberals who bought vacation property down there, thought they knew best. Carpetbaggers come to mind. Kind of a forced form of gentrification, whether they want it or not. (The state knows what’s best for us!/sarc)
Unreal. 18 pages of BS.
One of my faves “Any licensee entering a private home shall notify the occupant that the licensee is carrying a
And not in a church.
I’m on the MS Gulf Coast and hardly see any signs...plus our carry laws are some of the most 2nd friendly in the nation these days.
