Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The one guide you need for concealed carry gun law is here. This book covers carry laws nationwide, highlighting common points of law for each state and the District of Columbia, such that a reader should clearly understand how each jurisdiction differs. Any concealed carry permit holder knows the laws for carrying a firearm vary from state to state. This book clears up any confusion associated with interstate travel or relocation. The opening chapters give a general overview on what to consider before obtaining a permit, how to interact with law enforcement when carrying a concealed weapon, gun handling and storage, and traveling with a firearm. The remaining pages of the book break down concealed carry laws by state. For each state readers are informed as to whether or not permits are issued, what other states' permits are recognized within that state, what restrictions exist for owning firearms, selected excerpts from that state's actual gun law, and contact information for authorities within that state who can provide additional information. Each state is also given a letter grade and color ranking for an at-a-glance assessment of the leniency of that state's gun laws. Finally, there are some general parting words from the 2nd Amendment Media editors. If you are looking for an all-in-one reference for concealed carry gun law this is your comprehensive guide.

I was hoping this would be a good "pocket reference" to the laws across all 50 states. However, I found some bad advice and legally incorrect information.

I'll start with the worst first - at least some of the legal information is incorrect. I'm not an attorney, and I do not know all of the laws for all of the states. However, I do know something about the laws in the state of Florida. According to this book, it is legal to open carry a firearm in Florida. This is wrong and can land you in jail. Under Florida law, it is illegal to open carry. There are a few exceptions - but they are exceptions only.

If the book got this one wrong, I wonder how many other errors there are in the legal section.

I also find some of the advice in the book to be questionable such as just trusting the police to get it right when they investigate an incident in which you had to shoot someone. While I am a huge supporter of law enforcement, the fact is you want legal representation to ensure your rights are protected. Cops can make mistakes, and you don't want to spend your life in prison because of a well-intentioned error.

I'd recommend checking out Massad Ayoob's books for general advice on self-defense and firearms, and Jon Gutmacher's works on state laws regarding firearms.

On the upside - the book does look good. It has a much higher level of production quality than the typical gun books from other publishers. If the content was updated/corrected, this could be a good book.

This is a great orientation for concealed carry candidates in any state in the US as it takes a complete census of all the different legal frameworks concerning guns in the country. It is extremely well organized and color coded. It is an excellent reference manual to college work or a keep forever travel companion when on the road. Long live the 2nd amendment.

I learned a lot from this book. This first half discusses how to properly carry a weapon, while the second half summarizes each state's gun laws. I keep a copy in the glove box of my truck for quick reference.
