After this year, there will likely be 16 or 17 Constitutional Carry states
With Missouri, West Virginia, and Idaho enacting Constitutional Carry laws last year, twelve states allow people to carry without a permit in all or virtually all their states. This includes Montana that allows people to carry without a permit in about 99.4% of the state. And 2017 is shaping up as a banner year for passing more of these laws.
States that are about to pass these laws include: Indiana, Kentucky, New Hampshire, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
Tennessee is considering allowing “open carry” without a permit, though that is already quite common in most states.
In Iowa there is substantial support to change to their state Constitution that would prohibit “mandatory licensing,” though it isn’t completely clear how broad that restriction would be and it might possibly prohibit state concealed carry licensing.
Other states that are considering this legislation, but are unlikely to pass Constitutional Carry, include: Colorado (won’t pass legislature and would be vetoed by governor), Minnesota (Governor would veto), Texas (unlikely to get out of the state legislature), and Utah (Governor would likely veto again).
