Another reason to love Arkansas!

carryart The Arkansas Legislature and Gov. Bebee this month gave Arkansans what has come to be known as “Constitutional Carry,” the right to carry a handgun openly or concealed without the need to obtain a Concealed Carry Permit.

It has long been legal to carry a handgun while “on a journey’” but the language was vague as to what constitutes a journey. Act. 746 clarifies the law and calls a journey any travel outside the gun owner’s county of residence. But the second section of the law goes even further, making carrying a handgun unlawful only if the prosecutor can establish intent to commit a crime with it or prove the actual commission of a crime with the gun.

Here’s the link to Act. 746.

The revisions take effect sometime in July.
