    Change in Mississippi law - no permit for CC if in an enclosed container

    The guv signed an NRA-sponsored bill into law effective July 1, which will let Mississippians CC in a purse, briefcase or other fully enclosed satchel without a state-issued permit (or fingerprints or anything). But to carry my pocket, IWB, etc. weapon, I still need my permit. I heard it was coming, but to be honest I don't quite see the rationale for the different treatment.

    Seems to me to be an very confusing law- either require a permit, or don't.

    One news article says "Supporters cast the bill as a matter of safety for women who want to carry a gun in a purse without having to get a license."

    waist/fanny packs will be back in style, although they probably never went outta style in MS ;)

    Hey, I'll settle for continuous improvement. Just like the left is patient and persistent in chipping away at our rights, we need to do the same for reversing their BS.

    Though I am not so sure it's a good idea to actively encourage women to purse carry. Most don't understand the need for, nor utilize the (also expensive!) dedicated CC purses. Seems like this will make that mentality even more prevalent...

    what a strange law.

    I wonder if a fully enclosed holster such as the Sneaky Pete would qualify? but if that does, does my trusty cavalry holster then too? wut da hek?

    Isn't the carry of handguns in purses without a holster something we read about on the news now and then when they discharge and shoot someone, which mostly happens in Wal-Mart?

    OK, so if I strap a pouch, bag or piece of Tupperware to my belt I should be good to go right? There has to be more to this that what I understand.

    Firearms are tools. I'm not a caliber guy, nor am I a fan boy.

    Hand guns are better for self defense, long guns are better for home defense.

    Just another prime example of government at work. And another good reason I will NEVER go back to MS.

    Is a "flap holster" (like WW2 1911 holster) a closed container? What about a Safe Packer?

    I wonder if a "Sneaky Pete" holster would apply here?

    We have a customer who was a running back for the Detroit Lions who has always had a fanny pack with his pistol in it. Pistol or not I really doubt anyone has ever commented on his fanny pack. He is LARGE.

    Not sure the purpose for that. .... but not sure I would be excited about it, since I think it's a very bad idea to have a gun in a purse, etc. to begin with... that can be taken, etc.
