The 2nd amendment gives us the right to carry nationally. It was only after criminals abused that right, specifically prohibition era gangsters, that laws were passed to restrict those rights. The way we handle gun rights now is absolutely unconstitutional. It is a national issue, and one permit should allow a citizen to carry concealed in any city or state. Furthermore, a citizen should be able to open carry, without a permit, anywhere in the nation. This isn't about making new laws, but about enforcing the amendments we already have in the constitution. It's about restoring our God given rights.
