I have been living in Mississippi for the last 12 years and haven't applied for my CCL. I had one in Alabama and know that it wouldn't be more in Mississippi than filling out some paperwork, paying for the license, and proving who I am and where I live. I have one nagging question that has kept me from applying the last 2 years. I am mega pro 2nd amendment and will never surrender my firearms. The events in the last few years and the constant crying from the uneducated liberals have me a little concerned about the Federal Government. Mississippi has stated that the CCL list in the state is NOT public information. In fact we have recently passed an open carry law to show how the majority feel down here. My nagging question is, what will the State Government do if the Feds "demand" to have the States list of CCL's? I am not paranoid at all, but I have already stated that I will never surrender my firearms to ANYBODY. I can't see the police department, Sheriffs office, or the State police collecting, in fact I can't see the Military collecting weapons from American citizens on American soil. The military has sworn to protect the Constitution against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC! I can however see the Feds ie DHS trying to collect known firearms. Do you think the States will do what's right and tell the Feds that they lost that list and don't have it anymore, or will they cave in to the pressure the Feds could bring by cutting off Federal monies to the state? I have been told that this forum is the one to have rational discussions on, so let's discuss.
