    Restrictions on CC in your state?

    After coming home from work today I told the wife that after listening to the radio I wanted to get a T-shirt saying "Silly Liberals paychecks are for workers". She went postal on me, "tired of hearing me complain about the Libs. this lousy state of Mass. I live in, Ted Kennedy's car etc. etc". She said,"don't you have any thing good to say ? this is still the greatest nation on earth! After thinking a moment I said, "At least I don't live in Osama's home state of Illinois." She said,"I want to hear something positive about Mass & guns not pointing out a worse state." I said after a long pause," What I do like about Mass. is that concealed carry is so far of the radar not only people are clueless that your packing I never see any signs posted restricting CC." Which brings me to this post, in other states where the gun culture more prominent do you find more or less restrictions on CC?

    Lately I've been seeing some signs on banks and restaurants that prohibit. It's Arkansas, so what can I say? Things catch on kinda slow 'round here, but that's not always a bad thing. I carry everywhere I want to go. Except of course the courthouse and such...from what I hear it's only allowed for an officer of the law to carry or discharge a weapon in government buildings. :)

    There's little to no gun culture where I am from and we allow open carry and cc for anyone who's not a criminal, pays a fee and waits 30 days for their permit. State law preempts local ordinances too so cities can't be silly like the East Coast and Midwest.

    Just what/how hard is it to get a CCW permit in Mass? It's not a shall issue state is it?

    I love FL...I'd live in TX...perhaps UT, but I hate snow.

    I can live with the few restrictions that FL has...

    In your shoes? I'd move...OMO, of course.

    PA is a great carry state:

    - No permit required to OC on foot except in Philly (technically, any "City of the First Class", defined as having a population of 1 million or more. Philly's the only one which qualifies)
    - Any state's license/permit accepted for OC in a vehicle
    - Shall issue License To Carry Firearms (LTCF) with no fingerprint or training requirement (although this can limit reciprocity)
    - Notwithstanding the above, PA LTCF accepted (or not required) in 26 other states (add a UT non-res and get 7 more states)
    - No restriction on bar/restaurant carry, OC or CC
    - Gun-Free Zone signs carry no weight of law
    - No requirement to inform LEO of carry status unless asked
    - No firearm registration
    - No roster of "approved" weapons
    - No magazine capacity restrictions
    - No "assault weapons" ban
    - State pre-emption
    - Only courts, K-12 schools, State parks (but that's under review), and casinos are gun-free zones
    - Probably a few more I can't think of at the moment...

    The only problem is we're surrounded on three sides by the May Issue, non-reciprocating, no Non-resident permit states of NY, NJ, and MD
    Clinging to guns and God in PA...

    MD sucks, of course. It is may issue with the state police making the determination, so essentially there is no carry. Massachusetts, at least, is local jurisdiction may issue, so if you live outside the cities it probably isn't so bad.

    I visited NC, which, on the surface, seems pretty CC friendly, except there are a juge number of off-limits places built into the law. My dad just moved from there to SC; SC seems good, except for reciprocity (which may be changing). If I could carry there it would seem pretty good.

    I give PA the best overall CC-friendly score so far. When I looked for their restrictions, I thought I was doing something wrong because I couldn't find them! Don't be drunk with a gun, but no restrictions on CC around alcohol (or even drinking per se). And since OC is legal, there are no issues with accidentally showing. That's probably the major advantage PA has over Texas, it seems.

    The Laws in Arizona are terrible and we already have to many people. Stay in Teddy's play ground. Just don't bum a ride across any bridges with him.

    Terrible restrictions here in Idaho as well. It took me a lengthy 4-5 business days after application and fingerprinting to discover my CWL (Concealed Weapons License here) was approved.

    Then about a week wait (not sure why?) to go get the actual license at county sheriff's office.

    New Mexico is awful too! I'd move to NJ if I could afford to. Stay where you are, the summers are too hot and it snows all winter. I even give money to those holding "headed east need cash for gas" signs and I give rides to liberals headed for the state line. I'm glad I got that straightened out!

    I know you don't want to hear this but do you complain too much? My father had a bad heart and was pretty much confined to the house for several years. His only "entertainment' was TV and he would watch the news and complain constantly about the libs etc.

    Take a break from bashing Mass and Teddy for a while. I know it may be hard but it is better for you. Listen to your wife. In today's society it is easy to become pessimistic and disgruntled. Don't let it spill over into you personal life. Was the first thing you said to your wife when you walked in the door "I want a t-shirt". Take a look in the mirror and listen to your wife. Things aren't so bad, you could be living in Canada or DC.

    Good luck and remember the glass is half-full.

    Consider yourself VERY lucky! Here in Texas the wait time after the state receives an application for CHL is running 80 to 120 days!
