In almost every state, a Permit or License is required to carry a concealed handgun outside your home.
There are 50 states, and there are 50 different sets of laws and protocols that surround the issue of carrying a concealed firearm. Classrooms are cheaper and easier than Courtrooms. Be certain you are properly permitted/licensed in your home state as well as the states where you may travel. Safety is the cornerstone of firearm ownership!
