Topic: Reasons to Get a Permit Even With Constitutional Carry

Today, Riley and Jacob discuss all the various reasons for obtaining a CCW permit even if you live in a state with constitutional carry. And what about those that say “concealed means concealed” and “the Second Amendment is my permit?” Should a person even bother getting a permit at all even where required by the law? Good questions prompting solid discussion today!

    by supporting Concealed Carry you show that you do NOT believe in our inherent rights.. and your ad for your course you say a reason to get your concealed carry permit is that “it is your 2nd Amendment right” that statement is a lie.. NO rights are given by any amendment or law. the 2nd Amendment’s ONLY purpose is to prevent laws that infringe on our right to keep and bear arms are not put forth.. Concealed Carry laws prevent or control who can carry a weapon… that is an infringement of a right and completely UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

      William thank you for your comment. We appreciate the discussion and push back. I’m not sure what ad you are referring to. We have no ads running anywhere that I’m aware of that promote taking a class from us because it is your right. That said, in many jurisdictions in this country the only way to legally exercise the right to bear arms is to obtain a permit.

    you guys have it wrong… the Bill of Rights is to Protect our rights.. they are not laws for us follow.. they are NOT subject to judicial review…
    also it is ILLEGAL for a law enforcement to enforce a law that denies or subverts a right..

      William, I agree the bill of rights is to protect our rights but the constitution, including the bill of rights, is subject to judicial interpretation. People do not agree on what it means and so the constitution sets out the method by which we decide as a country what it means. I may not agree with how the courts have interpreted parts of the constitution but that doesn’t change the way our government was setup. I appreciate your comment and the healthy debate!
