    It's my position that all of the states laws regarding CC sux, some just sux less.

    IMO, if you have been cleared by the BG check and have no priors why should you be restricted to self defense by some idiots idea of the kill free zones. If you were a BG and wanted to go into one of the kill free zones, would the signage restricting the law abiding citizens stop you? I think not. If you knew that the chances are high that if you pulled your illegally carried pistol and started shooting the place up, that a CC cat might just cancel you ticket on the spot. Would you think twice? I know I would.. JMO

    Utah is a very gun-friendly state. There are no legal signs like the 30-06 signs in Texas. School carry with CCW is ok, few restrictions.

    Things I would like to see changed:

    1. Be able to prevent theft of property with firearm without being charged with a crime.

    2. True castle doctrine

    3. Laws against civil suit for justified shootings

    I'm not saying this just because I live here but VT and AK don't suck at all. No permits, no waiting period, the only restriction is schools and courthouses, that's it. anybody can CC as long as your not a felon.

    I'm not a native Vermonter either, I moved here for many reasons that makes it a great place to live, no gun laws is just an extra plus.
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    I don't know about VT, but the above is not quite correct for AK.

    From Handgunlaw.us:

    AS 11.61.220
    A public or private school for grades K-12,
    including the school grounds, parking lot or on a bus while
    used for a school sponsored activities, unless the person
    carrying the firearm has the permission of the chief
    administrative officer of the school or the school district.
    Any place where intoxicating liquor is sold for
    consumption on the premises, except a restaurant where the
    person carrying the firearm did not consume intoxicating
    liquor.
    Any licensed child care facility or licensed
    assisted living home for the elderly or for the mentally or
    physically disabled, if the facility is other than a
    (18.65.755 private residence (REVISED)

    Your right about AK sorry should have checked that, VT you can carry anywhere except school grounds and courthouses. Though it's not advised by most carrying in a bar or restaurant where liquor is served is perfectly legal.

    , I didnt know that VT was like AK in that respect, I'm absolutely mistaken there, my apologies to the residents of those two fine states!

    ^ that's quite alright

    I'm just proud to be a resident of one of the last remaining "live free or die" states.

    GEORGIA:

    The great things about the Peach State:

    1) Open Carry permissive
    2) Restaurant Carry
    3) State/Municipal Parks + Public Transportation
    4) State Preemption
    5) No Required Training for GFL
    6) Castle Doctrine + Protection from civil suits after a justified shoot
    7) Title II friendly
    8) Grassroots Activity is strong to protect IIA rights

    What sucks about the Peach State:

    1) Public Gathering Statute. No one even knows what it is. The little that it does specifically prohibit includes sporting events, churches, rallies, parades, bars, and the usual assortment of court houses, jails, etc.

    I would like to see the airport controversy ended once and for all. Although Georgia Carry had the language amended last year to specifically permit airport carry outside of the secured areas, the feds have refused to issue an injunction against the city for arresting permitted folks. That, and I would love to see the PG language removed from Georgia Code. The first public hearing on the latter is in less than forty-eight hours at the capital building! I'll be there wearing my empty holster as usual.

    Open carry without a license, AZ style, would be nice too.

    Gun Bill Advances to Subcommittee After First House Hearing

    I wish that I could say that the bill will come out of subcommittee looking the way that it went in, but I would be being less than honest if I did. I'm still psyched and encouraged about how quickly the bill moved into committee, however. We had a very good turnout and the committee was very much aware of our presence.

    MI isn't too bad.

    We need to get rid of pistol registration.
    We need to get rid of the pistol free zones. HOWEVER, the "pistol free" zones refer to a concealed pistol. You can carry in pistol free zones if you carry openly and have a CPL. Go figure.
    We need to be more NFA friendly. Enough said there.

    I like the shall issue CPL, state preemption (better than most other states), and the castle doctrine and self defense package.
