Lots of states have it, Maine does too and despite the opposition to it trying to claim it would lead to gunfights in the streets it has worked EVERYWHERE it’s been enacted. Gun owners simply are very law abiding folks. If we weren’t the left would mostly be dead by now.
Maine has a sort of 2 tiered system to carry permits. One is the Constitutional Carry which is permitless. Then there are those with permits. We undergo training, however minimal, but we do get some perks. Where permitless carry has no reciprocity with other states those with permits do have it. We don’t need to announce to a LEO that we’re carrying, there are some other perks too, but I just pay no attention to limits that others have that I don’t. I carry with a permit that I’ve had since '81, so knowing the limitations is a waste of time for me, or at least I see it as a waste of time. I never bothered to learn them since they just don’t pertain to me.
I hope it goes through for you Texans. It should be nationwide and not just in select states. Maineiacs don’t think any differently than anyone else. I refer to legal gun owners of course. We’re all inherently good people. (And you just have to know that burns up the left. They know deep down that they are NOT good people and can’t be trusted with that level of freedom. So you can’t be trusted with it either. They can’t possibly conceive of something that they don’t inwardly possess. For those not in possession of morality they simply have no conception of what it is.)
