Constitutional Carry is hot right now. The list of states officially supporting the practice has grown to nearly half of the US. Texas recently became the twenty-first such state, and this new legislation will go into effect as of September 1st of this year. Second Amendment advocacy groups are working with legislators in several other states as well, so hopefully, the list will grow beyond twenty-one in the not-too-distant future. According to the National Association for Gun Rights, some of the next Constitutional Carry candidates could potentially include Michigan, Alabama, Ohio, Louisiana, Indiana, and South Carolina. With this, organizations like U.S. LawShield are endeavoring to provide relevant education to firearms owners.
