    The Mississippi legislature is looking at a law that would allow concealed carry in bars, unsecured government buildings (whatever that means) and most state parks.

    Sounds like exactly what RKBA means to me...
    This should be the rule in the 'other' 56 states, too!

    awesome, good luck!

    However I can't wait for people to chime in and say why it's not a good idea and how there will be drunken bloodshed in the streets of Mississippi.
    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 know I've had my fingers crossed on this issue for a bit.

    I also wrote Senator Fillingane, thanking him for his great work on the amendment to SB 2153, as well as to Senator Flowers (for his fantastic work on SB 2153 itself).

    Good luck!!

    Keep us posted on progress.

    Hope you can get the definition of a secured areas to mean metal detectors, posted armed security, etc. -- not just posted.

    It seems other states are jumping on the band wagon. I hope it comes to Michigan.

    OMG!!!!!! Guns in bars and parks!!! The streets will run red with blood and the parks will no longer be safe with all the bullets flying about. Each booth in restaurants will need bullet proof glass to keep the patrons safe from all the drunks shooting the place up. Did I mention all the staff that will be shot, because an order was not done to the customers satisfaction?

    I'm sure you'll hear all the excuses for things that don't happen when these laws are enacted. It never fails to astonish me how the sheep think their own state citizens are so much less responsible then the citizens of other states who have the same laws, but none of the problems they fear.

    Thanks for that link!!! That's good news to my ears, as in a few months I'll be moving to Mississippi for at least the next three years! By the way, slightly off topic but still concerning the article, it mentioned: A 2004 change that waived a one-year state residency requirement to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon if the person applying for the permit is in the active-duty military or a retired law enforcement officer or if the person has a valid concealed-weapons permit from another state. My question is, how long is it now that I must be a resident before applying?

    Active duty Military members do not have to wait. Turn around time for permit is about 45 days last I heard.

    Heck, I travel through Mississippi just about every weekend, they have some of the nicest carry laws around compared to some states. Don't have much of a crime rate either, unlike parts of Tennessee. Tennessee you have to take an 8 hour class, MS you just go in, pay money, get background check and wait. MS also allows most state's permits to be reciprocal. Nice!

    The only bars in Jackson, MS that have had shootings were in Jackson and the shooters definitely did not have carry permits. I don't drink and drive and I don't drink and carry either. Mostly I don't drink.

    The biggest issue with this bill is that it initially was presented in the Senate with only the carry in Federal Parks restriction lifted to make state law allow carry in parks. When a bill lifting many more restrictions died in committee in the House, the Senate voted to amend their bill (the one under consideration now) to lift many of the carry restrictions under current law.

    Some say the bar provision is too much and may kill the bill in the House or maybe some compromise will be reached. It's a step in the right direction for 2nd Amendment rights - repealing the permit requirement would make it perfect. I hope it passes though - would make carry much easier.
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson
