Yesterday, Governor Matt Mead signed a bill acknowledging that law-abiding citizens can carry a concealed gun without a permit.
“The law allows state citizens legally entitled to own guns to carry them concealed starting in July.”
Of course, the anti-rights lobby had to change their diapers afterwards. Brady Campaign president Paul Helmke said: “The gun lobby is trying to push more guns into more places.”
David Kopel has an excellent report on gun control’s racist roots. Anti-concealed carry laws were an attempt to punish freed Blacks for carrying any kind of weapon, while enforcement against white offenders was minimal.
Way to go, Paul “Jim Crow” Helmke.
