    Well, last year we were finally able to get our concealed carry bill passed so that's definitely a positive step in the right direction. Unfortunately, the bill is so prohibitive that there are still many hurdles ahead of us...

    I am trying to send my oldest son in Iowa my XD9. He is 25, but they said he has to file for a handgun permit. Nothing like that required here in Texas.

    Welcome to the forum. My one son used to live in Chicago - or in a 'burb just outside. We were relieved when he was able to move to a state where we could be armed when we went to visit! But someone has to stay and fight for the rights of all!
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    ==================

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
