No Open Carry and Long wait times to receive CHL. Texas
Paying for a concealed weapons permit.What is your biggest complaint about gun laws in your state?
Having to have a concealed weapons permit.
Having the FBI declare me innocent first.
Any law the excludes the right to self defense.
Any place that excludes the right to self defense.
Legislators, Mayors,Governors,Presidents and any one that wants to keep me "safe" by limiting or infringing on my right of self defense.
All of it is hogwash.

NC definitely has some interesting ones.. My non favorite is not allowing to carry inside restaurants that serve alcohol
After reading some of the complaints in this thread, I can only say that any complaints I may have about the laws here in Florida are minor.

I want to have the choice for open carry. I want to the ability to protect myself while driving to and from work.

Actually we have it good here in MI compared to many states, a relatively pro gun legislature, Shall issue, Reciprocity with more states than any other, We can carry in places that serve booze (51% rule) great Castle Law that extends outside the home, and we have pending legislation to remove all CEZ and allow you to carry anyplace a police officer can....

For me in Maine,
1) No carry on college campuses.
2) The only way to legally carry in a moving motor vehicle without a CC permit is to open carry an unloaded firearm.
In Georgia it's off-limits at church and public gatherings.

For me it is the prohibition on open carry. What's the point of having a BBQ gun if you can't show it off at a BBQ? But seriously, when it is 105* and 80% humidity having to dress so my weapon is "not identifiable by casual observation" or however they word it is not exactly fun.

Florida is pretty good.
No signs to worry about, and carry is allowed in most places, i.e., banks, churches, etc.
Now if we could do just a few things to make it perfect...
Carry 'in school' (like in UT), then we could (practically) carry 24/7.
Add to that the ability to protect your property (like in TX), then dirtbags stealing your tools from a shed on your property could be 'thinned out'...fine with me. (like Ted Nugent, "I don't like repeat offenders, I like dead offenders.")
Finally, the opportunity for OC. Now I prefer CC, but this would take away the fear of printing or the wind blowing up one's shirt, etc. Also, those who wanted to carry OC, could...just not for me. I prefer suprises. (Although there are those times when you're getting gas in Jax or Orlando when it might be good advertising to keep BG's away..)
Stay armed...gotta' love the GunShine State...stay safe!

No carry in church in MO - it's something that certainly needs changing.

I really can't complain about Utah. We are getting better all the time. Everybody thought our 2 click law (open carry without a permit, gun unloaded) is strange but at least we can carry with or without a permit.
............That we have ANY...................
For Arizona, it would be 1) Not being able to carry on school grounds unless - your in your car and your weapon is unloaded, and when you get out of your car the weapon has to stay in the car and the car needs to be locked. 2) Not being able to carry in places that sell booze for consumption,.. I don't drink at all and it makes me mad I cannot go eat at most all places I like to eat,..
Hopefully these will get addressed soon and then I just have to convince my boss to allow CC permit holders to carry on the job without risk of losing our jobs and I'll be carrying 24/7...
Gee, where are all the responses from our Alaskan members?
Oh, as for Maryland...
May. Freakin'. Issue.
