Found At The Br-dy Website

This factoid (under "overview"): "Two states, Wisconsin and Illinois, do not require a permit to carry concealed handguns in public while two states forbid the carrying of concealed handguns."

Emphasis mine. Homework: they ain't doin' it. Kids, that's right bad advice up there. Don't follow it; the gun-banners want to get you in trouble.

As we all know, the two states are actually Vermont and Alaska. Vermont's been that way since almost forever; funny how it is one of the safest states in the Union, hey?

Also wrong: Indiana listed as a state that allows open carry without a permit. Not true for handguns and a good way to learn about criminal justice system from the inside. I'm startin' to think the misstatements are deliberate. And/or evidence of mental disease or defect.

Somebody needs to point them to .

They got more than that wrong, look at the open carry map at :

Br*dy states that only FL, IL and TX ban open carry. They leave out NY, AR, OK and SC.

ND, MN, GA, MS and UT also belong in licensed OC.

They have so many errors, it can't be just stupidity or laziness.

So, question, is OC a felony in the states where they get it wrong?

In MN at least the first offense of carrying without a permit open or concealed is a gross misdemeanor. $800 fine and or 30 days in jail if I remember correctly

I sent them a very polite email a month or more ago about the error with WI and IL.

I can only conclude one of the following three things:

1) They don't care about the truth.
2) They are so short staffed they don't have time to fix their errors.
3) They don't read their email.

Any of the above conclusions is a good sign for us.

Normally I follow R.A. Heinlein's advice of "Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity."
Even with the Br*dy Organization's deep well of stupid in this case I have to go with malice.

We're working on going for 3 - the Constitutional carry bill passed out of committee today. Here's hoping!
