Mississippi: What Winning Looks Like

posted on April 14, 2015

Firearm freedoms continued to expand Friday when Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed two measures that, among other things, allow residents to carry off-body (meaning in purses and briefcases) without a permit.

According to NRA-ILA, “The new NRA-backed laws will reduce concealed-carry permit fees, allow permitless concealed carry in purses and briefcases, and streamline enhanced carry training requirements for active military and veterans.” The measures also protect common ammunition from BATFE overreach, lower the permit age for National Guard/Reserve personnel and clarify local powers to regulate carry.

We at A1F send a huge “thanks” to the advocates, volunteers, legislators and executives who worked diligently to pass these measures. While all our other constitutionally guaranteed freedoms become smaller with every executive order and bureaucratic regulation, our Second Amendment freedom is the only one that is expanding. This constant, inexorable advance of firearm freedom is what “winning the gun argument” looks like.
