Colorado, Iowa, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota and Virgina have no-permit-needed legislation in the works. They’d join Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming.
South Dakota is just waiting for the governor’s signature.
An important step was taken yesterday in Wyoming toward restoring the constitutionally protected right of Americans to keep and bear arms, as that state became the second in less than a year to enact legislation affirming the right of its citizens to carry a concealed firearm without a special government-issued license. Following adoption in the state Senate, the vote of the House in the Wyoming legislature approved the bill by a vote of 48–8 several weeks ago, and Gov. Matt Mead (photo, left) signed it into law on March 3.
The House Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Committee voted 8-1 Friday in favor of the bill, sponsored by Casper Republican Senator Kit Jennings. It already has cleared the Senate and now goes to the full House.
They added an amendment that makes it illegal to carry while intoxicated.
On June 11, the top law enforcement officials of nearly half the states signed a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, expressing their opposition to reinstatement of the federal ban on semi-automatic firearms.
“We share the Obama Administration’s commitment to reducing illegal drugs and violent crime within the United States. We also share your deep concern about drug cartel violence in Mexico. However, we do not believe that restricting law-abiding Americans’ access to certain semi-automatic firearms will resolve any of these problems,” the letter said.
The letter notes congressional opposition to bringing back the ban, and calls for increasing enforcement of existing laws.
We encourage NRA members to let these state officials know we appreciate them standing up to the incessant clamor for gun control that is currently coming from anti-gun groups and their media allies.
Many fast food delivery companies have taken extra precautions over the years to train their employees safety steps to protect them from dangerous situations.
“We’re always concerned about employee safety and we know we need to execute procedures and policies that the way that we’ve done things, but, we certainly believe that those will keep people safe,” said Lamont Muchmore of Papa John’s in Cheyenne…
“The first thing we even try to do is prevent them from being a target. We have bank drops after drivers are out and no driver should be out with over $20 in their pocket,” explains Muchmore.
Drivers are also expected to carry a cell phone with them at all times and when they deliver late night pizzas, the store calls the residence to make sure they are home before the driver leaves.
I’m confused. The story says “companies have taken extra precautions over the years” and a manager says “Making sure that we follow the policy and that we’re executing the way that we’re supposed to should be a very safe environment for our employees” but the story doesn’t mention anything other than not carrying too much cash and carrying a cell phone.
Where are these procedures that should create a “very safe environment”?
