North Dakota to Allow Constitutional Carry

Another state is adding themselves to the growing list of constitutional carry states, meaning that citizens can carry without a permit, and secure themselves as the 12th state to do so.

North Dakota just passed a new bill, House Bill 1169, and it will go into effect on August 1. Governor Doug Bargum signed the bill back in March.

NRA reports:

HB 1169 eliminates the requirement of North Dakota residents to obtain a permit in order to lawfully carry, and makes the current permitting system optional, which will still allow citizens to obtain permits to take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states. Those wishing to utilize the permitless carry system starting on August 1, 2017, should ensure they are familiar with the new law.

This bill recognizes a law-abiding adult’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.

It’s strange to me that we have some states that have moved forward with permit less carry and allow so much freedom, and then there are states like New York who do not allow anyone to carry, regardless of permit.
