"According to the NRA-ILA, there are currently seven states that do not allow concealed carry in establishments where alcohol can be consumed, i.e., bars, restaurants and stadiums. Some licensed concealed carry holders may simply choose not to frequent such establishments, but imagine working in one of those places and being rendered defenseless every day because the law prohibits you from carrying your firearm. Many individuals are fighting for those laws to be overturned, and some of those people at the front lines are courageous women with personal stories that fuel their passions for the advancement of Second Amendment rights." ...

"As a country that was built on the right of the individual ... one that seems to always bring out the extremist is the Second Amendment — the whole 'Right to Keep and Bear Arms' thing."

"Well what if I told you that some of us pro Second Amendment supporters even wanted that to extend to our college campuses for those students with their handgun carry permit? Would you call me crazy? What if I told you there are actually already states allowing this, like Utah and Colorado? Are you intrigued yet? As radical as this idea seems, what makes a college campus a magical place where crime doesn’t happen? Why can’t I carry at East Tennessee State University? Tennessee is a fairly gun rights-friendly state." ...

"TTAG commentator Buuurr writes: “I’ve always wondered what the obsession with printing was myself. I wear my Springfield XDm 9mm with the extended mag in a pocket holster all the time. The mag of the gun sticks out of my pocket if I do anything but stand straight. I go to the bank, the grocery store and near everywhere else but the post office like this. No one notices. And if they do notice they do not care because no one has commented on it before. I have a very cute daughter that is of the ‘random-women-of-all-ages-in-public-places-stopping-us’ age and none have said anything or looked to be surprised. Nine out of the ten of the most common stores and shopping centers we visit have a uniformed police officer at the door. Nothing…" ...

"Recent events of this summer have brought the gun issue to the attention of many Americans. Multiple mass shootings over the last two months have caused people to reexamine their views on gun control. This has always been a divisive issue and the recent horrific events will do nothing to assuage the intense emotional response that accompanies this debate for a great number of people."

"Since the ratification of the second amendment, we have seen an evolvement in what it means to bear arms. The technology of firearms has grown at an exponential rate, and the types of weapons readily available to the public are capable of inflicting extreme damage, quickly, to large amounts of people." ...
