    Shall Issue History

    I'm sorry if this has been discussed to death, but I'm relatively new to this forum and haven't seen it discussed before.

    Why in this day and age of so many anti's, the Brady Bill, the Assault Weapons Ban, etc., did so many states enact CCW Shall Issue laws in the past 20 years? Believe me, I'm not complaining! But if you look at the Right To Carry History link on http://www.handgunlaw.us you can see that only 6 other states had Shall Issue before Florida enacted it in 1987. Many (14) of the newer Shall Issue states became that way during the Clinton years.

    According to handgunlaw.us, as of today there are 2 No Issue states, 11 May Issue states (but Hawaii, NJ, and MD are de facto No Issue), 35 Shall Issue, and 2 Unrestricted.

    I'm not too optimistic about the holdout states, but I hope this trend continues into more reciprocity among the ones who do respect the 2nd Amendment!

    While these don't address your question directly, I believe the next installment may:

    The History of Gun Control Part 1
    The History of Gun Control Part 2

    Good articles and background.

    In Part 2 she alludes to "what went wrong in the 70s" coming up in the next installment...wrong for us/NRA/2nd Amendment supporters or wrong for the anti's???

    Either way, I look forward to Part 3 and beyond, especially if it answers my question (i.e. What went RIGHT for us starting in the late '80s?).

    Florida was a landmark in the CCW world, the antis predicted "shoot outs in the streets, the rivers would run red with the blood of the Innocent". But after a few years of none of this crime rates started to drop, assault, robbery, rape, all down and other states pressured by grass roots groups subsumed and guess what the antis predicted the same and guess what the results were the same. It just sort of avalanched in our favor.

    If I remember correctly Marion Hammer, past NRA president and FL activist had a lot to do with getting the original FL law passed.
