Sept. 16, 2011 - PRLog -- The new concealed carry handgun law sponsored by Florida Republican Cliff Stearns takes affect Nov. 1, providing properly trained handgun owners greater rights to protect themselves. Under new measures, gun owners will be able to travel from state to state with their concealed weapon, if that state permits people to carry a concealed handgun without fear of breaking the law. Currently only the state of Illinois has a ban on concealed handguns.  

U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren recently sent a letter to Illinois lawmakers regarding concealed carry legislation. In the letter, Hultgren pointed out that the Supreme Court ruled in 2008 and 2010 stated the Constitution guarantees Americans' individual rights to possess and protect themselves with firearms, according to the Second Amendment.

The letter went on to urge lawmakers to join the rest of the states in passing this legislation and to stop denying the citizens of Illinois the legal right to protect themselves. The bill actually came close to passing, receiving 65 of the 71 votes required to pass.

Recent news from Green Bay, Wisconsin highlighted states need to establish, or at least clarify what training is actually required for a concealed carry permit. State officials said some people actually wanted to satisfy those training requirements with a hunter's safety class, even though those classes weren't intended to cover concealed carry training.

As a responsible gun owner myself, I would have to agree with Wisconsin state officials. States should outline specific concealed carry training requirements for permits. After all, we do it for hunter's safety, why not for people who feel they need to carry a handgun for protection?

By definition, "concealed carry" implies the concealed handgun should be concealed from view. Law enforcement professionals know how important it is to conceal their firearm, it should not be any different for the average gun-toting American citizen with a permit to carry. Concealment techniques should be part of any good permit training.

Let's hope states get a handle on the training issue before they get flooded with new permit applications!
