Texas (R) Governor, Greg Abbott, signed Constitutional Gun Carry into law last week, becoming the 22nd State in the country to ditch the need for conceal carry permits. Now Republican Candidate for Nevada Governor, Joey Gilbert, announces he will also sign Constitutional Carry into law in Nevada if elected.
John Lee’s folks are unwilling to commit to Constitutional Carry right now and Sheriff Lombardo has not replied back to our request.
Many folks are asking since the Dems passed the Universal Back Ground gun law last year, even for gun shows and private party gun purchases, what’s the need for CCW’s?
Joey said “Every law abiding American has the God Given right to defend their homes, their families and their lives.”
Under current law, a citizen must take a CCW class, and then submit paperwork to the local County Sheriff who then has up to 120 days to issue a Conceal Carry Weapons Permit. Many women have come forward who have been victims of stalkers, and even after they passed a background check at a gun store, the women were forced to wait 120 days for a permit to carry their gun in their purse. According to FBI statistics, over 1,500 women are killed each year by their stalkers, even after they’ve obtained restraining orders. The women had a terrible choice, as one put it “either break the law and live or follow the law and die.” The women didn’t want to be identified for obvious reasons.
Joey said “Constitutional Carry will save women’s lives. The current CCW laws leave women vulnerable.”
