I have put my money where my mouth is. I contacted my senators to support national concealed carry reciprocity. You can do so here. and I wrote to my Governor to support Constitutional Carry in my state. Fight for your rights, Men of the West.
What you do can be easy: Engage your representatives on Twitter. Urge them to sponsor the Concealed carry reciprocity bill. If your reps are hostile, don’t waste your time, unless you want some free entertainment trolling the wackos.
It is moderately more effort if you call or write your reps. Most of them will have contact information on their website.
Join the NRA, or better yet, Gun Owners of America. I renewed my membership to Gun Owners of America.
You may think it is a waste of time. Gun rights is one area that conservatives, especially at the state level, have not been failing us. Take a look at this animated map. Progress is being made. It is moving at a glacial pace, but glaciers have a lot of power.


  1. Yeah[name redacted], I live in your sister-state, Mississippi.. (See the big green)
    We’ve been up-gunning and carrying for all my life. Everyone I associate with does, as well.
    It wouldn’t be a “nice” state to start some crap in.
    Frankly, I’m surprised Alabama is behind, Louisiana, and especially, Texas.
    I guess it’s who plucks your chickens.

  2. I have been carrying a Glock 17 every waking moment for the last 23 years. Before it was legal, and since. The weapon has over 100,000 rounds through it to date, and I can run it instinctively and and at near model 18 speed. Things are better in MO than the old days, to be sure, but still there is room for improvement. I have spent much time in the capitol on this and other issues, enough that I dread a trip to that den of snakes more every time I go. Have had face to face conversations with elected officials that we send to DC multiple times over the years, and in most cases my interaction with them is rarely other than trolling, as they have largely proven traitors, no matter the party. But we must continue to make ourselves known. Every time I make that call, I also purchase another length pf rope or box of cartridges as a matter of principle. To remind myself that the ultimate power rests with us, whether or not the majority of us know it, or want it. Liberty is an elusive creature, most often and truly enjoyed only by those willing to be an outlaw and pariah for the sheer pleasure of its company.

  3. I would rather advocate unrestricted carry, open or concealed, depending on the citizen’s preference. It’s not the government who should be able to choose which right I exercise, and when. Personal freedoms come with personal responsibilities, those who misuse either should lose them.

  4. beware giving the government powers that it does not possess. the 2nd amendment is clear and all 50 states have a similar law.
    the first ten amendments are enumerated rights that the government has no power over and anything approaching mob rule of democracy is an anathema to free men.
    Better to push this at the state level than the federal level and practice taking back your rights by ignoring illegal laws and or challenging them in court and force them to justify their unlawful behavior and call the politicians out as liars as they took and oath to uphold and defend.
