    What is your biggest complaint about gun laws in your state?

    Just curious what residents in other states complain about their state gun laws. For myself in PA it's not being able to transport a firearm in a vehicle w/o a CC permit except only in route to a range with no stops. Here in PA anyone can OC w/o a permit but without a permit you can't transport the gun in your vehicle so what good is you can only take your gun to the range and home again. What's your state like?

    No open carry period....and the carry while camping is a little confusing. Im still not sure if I can open carry while camping. Then again never really looked that one up fully.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    The confusing,never understood,often debated "Public gathering" law.
    It has been brought up the last two Legislative sessions but never made it out of committee.

    Florida (which has pretty good gun laws):

    confusing "gun-free zones" regulations (e.g. bars vs. resteraunts). I would rather be able to carry anytime.

    That there are any at all that infringe on law-abiding citizens' RKBA. "Requiring" me to get the government's approval to exercise my RKBA however I see fit. "Prohibiting" me from doing so in certain places.

    I am not a criminal.

    I am not an enemy of the State.

    I am a law-abiding human being (and, therefore, a holder of the natural, God-given human right to keep and bear arms) and citizen of the United States, meaning that my state is constitutionally prohibited from infringing on that right pursuant to the 2nd Amendment made applicable to the states via the 14th Amendment. The fact that the state goes ahead and does so nonetheless does not make it legitimate--much less so "right."

    That I have been disenfranchised in many aspects of my natural, God-given, human RKBA by my and other states as well as the federal government is my biggest complaint about gun laws.

    For specifically gun laws no carry by _licensed_ persons on school property.
    I have to go home and disarm myself before then getting back in the car to take my kids to the local parks of which three of four are part of or amongst school grounds. A major PITA.
    Also I have been in a class that has been hosted at a local school the past 11 weeks running 3 or more hours long.
    Again I have to go unarmed in order to be lawful.

    Aside from that I would take out the MA provision toward being able to deny or revoke firearm permit of any sort on the non-defined premise of character as interpreted by the issuing agent/police chief.

    These two are my primary bugaboos and concerns as in regard to sensibility and fairness.

    In Texas, the laundry list of places off-limits to licensed folks is vexing. There are so many places where my wife cannot carry, but I, as a peace officer, can carry, that when together, one the two weapons on my belt is understood to be for her to grab in an emergency. An unintended consequence of no-gun zones is that many weapons are left inside vehicles as a result, and the daily harvest of these guns by car burglars is scandalous.

    Open carry would be a nice option, in the oppressive summer heat. I open-carry in police uniform 50+ hours a week, and really don't understand what all the fuss is about. Yes, open carry does mean being in a heightened state of alert, but then, we should be on such alert, anyway, IMHO, concealed carry or not. (I can actually legally carry openly, being a peace officer, but my chief can spank me for carrying openly when not in uniform.)

    I wish open carry was statewide here in Missouri. Currently, OC can be denied by individual towns. Without tremendous research, OCing through the many townships near St. Louis is a quick ticket to arrest.

    Can not carry into restaurant that serves alcohol. I do not drink while CC'ing, but it would be nice to not have to disarm when I go out to eat.

    In general any law infringing on my right as a law abiding citizen to carry. If you want a specific law, no conceal carry in restaurants that sell alcohol for on premise consumption.
