View Full Version : Do You Have A Concealed Handgun License?
10-15-2008, 06:35 PM
It might wind up the same like for machine guns. If you already have it, you can keep it But, no more new licenses maybe?
So long as they don't make it price prohibitive!

This is bizarre of course. A news channel here had a segment on the increased interest in CCW courses across the nation and people renewing their licenses. Apparently the state here has fallen behind on processing and some people have waited a little too long to renew. The word is out the state has become flooded with renewals and new license applications. The state is supposedly adding people to speed up the paperwork. They did mention that there is some concern about the upcoming election as a motivator for people to get their permits. I suspect that there will be a mad scramble after the election if "you-know-who" gets elected.

Lost mine last year over a alc. related ticket.Better to be judge by 12 than carried by 6.

I would if I could, but it's illegal in Wisconsin.:thumbsdow

Me and the wife both have them.
She carries either a S&W 642, or a S&W M&P9C.
I carry either a G19, a Para P14.45, or a KelTec PF9

I have a concealed carry but would enjoy the security much more if we had a nationwide recipcrocy law.

I got my handgun carry permit. We don't have to carry concealed in TN, but I do anyways. I ain't Wyatt Earp, and don't want to be anybody's Rambo. :)

That would be interesting to see folks wearing side arms open in plain view these days.
But, I would still conceal mine.

I belive OHIO has open carry.
10-25-2008, 01:40 AM
So does my wife.
A law must be passed so that employers MAY NOT exclude LICENSED employees from having a concealed firearm on the company property!
I don't see if it helps.
bad guys still bring guns to work.

i have had mine for over twenty five years, i got it right after i bought my first colt 1911 a1 & i dont leave home with out it.
My brother and I both do, our wives are getting them in the next few months.

Got mine within the first six months of the law being passed.
In Florida, there is a rush on to get them. Friend of mine runs classes and he's being almost overwhelmed with sign-ups.

Yep, have mine in the Bluegrass state :rockin:

it's a great feeling having a CCW.
btw, anyone notice a trend for the "no, Never will" answer? Maybe it's biased though, this is a firearms community.

My wife and I both have had one for about six months now, I never leave the house unarmed. With Hussein in the White House we all need to be extra vigilant, and watch for the terrorist activities which are sure to come. Even if he's not in bed with the Sons of Allah, they will surely test him to see what he will do in the event of an attack; I'll wager nothing but blow hot air - of course, he is a Democrat.(for those of you who are Democrats, my apologies, but admit it: this isn't your grandfathers Democratic Party, it is much closer to the Socialist Party).

I belive OHIO has open carry.
I see "open carry" here most every other day (done it myself on occasion). It's no big deal in the "Free Zone". But then most people here carry concealed and most don't even have "permission slips" either. Concealed carry without a permission slip is only a misdemeanor with a token fine if caught (never heard of anyone who was caught ever getting cited). I guess it would be a problem in any of the "occupied territories" though.

Haha, back in my hometown in maryland, i used to carry in my vehicle ALL the time.....I knew all the cops in my county and they didnt even care!
One of my friends got pulled over, and she had a small kel-tec pistol or something between the seat and console. The cop just told her to put it in the trunk, and then he left,lol.
Back when i worked at a LNG facility, i worked as security, and we were running checkpoints that morning.
The sherrifs dept. searched one guys truck (who was from texas), and they found a loaded S&W or something.
The cops let him go, and didnt even do ANYTHING.
But my boss was pissed because the cops did nothing, and so he barred the guy from the facility, and made print-outs of the guy and TRIED to convince US that this guy was some big bad criminal.......just because he had a pistol in his truck.....
That was really fucked up, because he could of saved lives if terrorists tried to blow that place up!
here they are......trying to make him look like a scumbag......
atleast the cops were cool enough to give him his gun back and let him go.
I live new jersey now, which is even MORE screwed up.
I hope this place burns and falls into the ocean!
I would seriously not even care one bit!

I've had a fla permit for many years. Even though I don't need one as an Alaska LEO.
12-04-2008, 11:38 PM
Mine's coming soon
12-07-2008, 11:27 AM
I have a Utah one and I'm not even a US national. Cherish your freedoms...
12-13-2008, 12:03 PM
Had one since last month.
12-13-2008, 12:09 PM
The correct answer would be NO, as I have four. And choose to open carry most of the time anyway, which requires no permit in my state.
