Positive Trend among the States?
Speaking only about the States and not about the Federal Gov., I feel that overall the trend is positive and continues to get better with regard to CC!
Kansas came online in 07 as did Nebraska. Although Nebraska doesn't recognize other states that can be changed. Minnesota has just recognized several more states and Nevada is in the process of doing the same.
I am not aware of any states backsliding with respect to CC rights... although I don't follow this all that closely.
My overall feeling is that CC rights are being expanded by the States!
Let us know how you feel!

things have been getting overall. although, I am apprehensive on what is going to happen after a new occupant is in the white house. are all the gains made in the individual states going to be negated by some federal mandate since the WH/congress is going to be controlled by a party hostile to the 2nd Amendment rights of its citizens. we'll see what happens.

Colorado suffered a political reversal in the last election, and as such our CCW rights will be under assault for the next year or two...

Texas has been positive, with passage of SB 378 last week. Only one Texas Representative is a co-sponser of HR 1022. I'd classify Texas as positive (duh..... ). I am concerned about the increasing stridency of the rhetoric amongst the traditional "Anti's" and their continued attacks, both on the state and the federal level.
IMHO our work is cut out for us over the next several years.

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

Red state, blue state
The state by state CCW and gun rights trend has been positive for the last 10 or 20 years. We all know how many states have passed "shall issue" CCW laws or "castle defense" laws over this period. And there hasn't been any significant Federal gun legislation for a long time, with the exception of the on again/off again assault weapons ban that is now "off".
When you look at the individual state trends, it is remarkable how it correlates with the "red state/blue state" breakdown in recent elections. The states that are holdouts on shall issue CCW seem to be those that vote for Presidential candidates like Al Gore and John Kerry. I'm talking about the blue states like CA, NY, IL, HI, MA, MD and NJ. I will be surprised to see any of these places pass a shall issue law in the near future.

I agree with Team American about Colorado; currently we have 3 anti-gun bills in the legislature here (a fourth already dead). But overall, I agree that the states are making progress as Rallyman wrote.

Chucky And His Gang...
are still trying to attack, but overall the outlook in most states is getting better...
I'm willing to take a step back once in a while, to get five more steps forward...

Sorry to hear about that. I hope the good folks in Colorado will be able to weather the storm and prevail in the end.

We're halfway through the session now and it ends May 10th, but there's still a lot of damage that can be done. Hopefully we'll be able to reverse some of the bad decisions made now in Nov. 2008.

It is getting better state by state, like Rock said Texas passed the Castle Doctrine last week.
Now if the Supremes will hear and rule our way on the DC law maybe the Feds will get on board.
If it is not in the US Constitution then the Federal Government should not be doing it.

We hopefully can correct some of the CCW bill language that was misinterpreted in the last years Kansas's CCW bill. Steve48
