North Dakota Joins the Party

North Dakota's Republican governor signed legislation Thursday night that allows people to carry concealed handguns without needing a permit.
This makes North Dakota the latest of about a dozen states to adopt what gun rights proponents often call "constitutional carry," according to the National Rifle Association.
As Dave Thompson of Prairie Public Broadcasting reports, "The measure allows people 18 and older to carry hidden firearms without having to undergo background checks or training — as long as they're law-abiding citizens." Anyone who is eligible to possess a Class 2 firearm license and has had a valid driver's license or state ID card for at least a year may carry a concealed firearm.

So... North Dakota joins Idaho and Wyoming as states that border Montana with Constitutional Carry, yet our beanbag for brains Governor vetoed the Constitutional Carry Bill for the third time. This says a lot about government in Montana (especially with both Houses in Republican control, with a Democrat Governor.) Call me when you figure that out...
