    Unites States Right To Carry Law Map


    As defined:

    1)Shall issue: the state MUST issue a carry permit to anyone who is qualified to obtain one .

    2)May issue: the state MAY issue a carry permit to anyone who is qualified to obtain one(ie no criminal record, of the correct age, etc,) BUT, local/state police/judges require the applicant to show a credible NEED for a carry permit. In most states, this is nearly impossible. (Yellow)

    3)May issue b :same as above, but generally the requirements are much less harsh, and most applicants do get granted a license, however, the state/local municipalities still have a say. (green.)


    4)Outright ban: Currently, only one state bans carry permits PERIOD, and that is Illinois. There are a number of cases waiting to be heard by the Supreme Court, but as of now, Illinois does not allow CCW. (black)

    5)Constitutional Carry: Anyone can buy a gun at any time without permits. However, it is still a crime to buy one if you are a convicted felon, underage, on heavy mood altering medications, etc. (blue.)

    Thanks much for the informative post. I might add that Philly has a City ordinance against concealed carry similar to NYC's Sullivan Law. I am on good authority that Philly is losing its standing as to their gun law restriction. So long as Bloomberg is in power in NYC, I doubt any relaxing of the Sullivan law will happen. GREAT POST!
