The number of constitutional carry states is going up. This is SO America!
Finally lawmakers are realizing having a concealed carry permit isn’t exactly a constitutional thing.
House bill 1169 passed in North Dakota with ZERO opposition. The bill allows residents of North Dakota to conceal carry so long as they have a valid license and have been living in the state for at least a year.
This right, however, does not apply to schools and public places; you will still need to have a conceal carry permit.
Upon signing the bill – which takes effect August 1, Gov. Burgum said: “I ask legislators and law enforcement officials to closely monitor this new law with a continual focus on public safety.”
Carrying a hidden firearm without a permit is currently a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,500.
North Dakota will be the 13th state to require 0 license to carry. The other Constitutional Carry states are: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.
