  • Concealed Carry License.

    Concealed Carry License Welcome to Conceal Carry HQ! I created this site because I am dedicated to the rights of the individual, and their ability to protect themselves, their family, and their property. It is my sincere hope that the information on this website helps you make an informed decision about obtaining a  concealed carry license in your state. On a philosophical level, it is my opinion that the Constitution of the United States is one of the finest documents ever created in this history of mankind, and it was carefully constructed by a group of men that had the courage to stand up for themselves, their families, and their rights. The first explicit right that these individuals decided was important enough to be explicitly protected from the federal government is collectively known as the “Bill of Rights”, and protects an individual’s freedom of speech, religion, and public gathering. Directly after these grouping of rights, the founding fathers said that the citizens of this new nation had the right to keep arms. “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” The founding fathers knew the right to self-protection was so important they wrote this right second in their list of amendments to the constitution of the United States, knowing that this basic human right would be amongst the first that a tyrannical government would seek to remove. Every responsible citizen should be practicing their right to a concealed carry license. Contrary to what some may try to convince you of, the second amendment does include the right to carry a personal firearm for the protection of self, family, and property. The founding fathers wrote most of the law that would set restraints on the newly born government of the United States from British Common Law, which makes sense as everyone in the United States were loosely affiliated with Britain while the colonies were a British Protectorate. In order to understand the purpose of the second amendment to the constitution, you have to understand a bit of history. During the reign of King James II of England, England was in the midst of a fierce religious rift between Catholics and Protestants. In an attempt to quell the fight between the two factions, he unilaterally decided to remove firearm ownership rights of certain groups, while allowing other groups to have firearms. The founding fathers knew that if allowed to, government would pick “winners and losers” (like they do in so many other instances) by drafting law to allow certain people to protect themselves, while making it illegal for others to have the same basic right. By placing this amendment so high on the constitution it shows that the founding fathers knew the basic right to self-protection allowed by a conceal carry license was of the utmost importance to personal liberty, prosperity, and freedom. Every state in the union has different laws that govern and dictate the process in which a citizen of that state can apply for a concealed carry license in their state. For whatever state you live in, you can visit our concealed carry license page at http://concealcarryhq.net/concealed-carry-license/ and access a detailed guide of the process for applying to receive a concealed carry license in the state which you live in. It is extremely important that you thoroughly understand the application process for your particular state, and the guide is an extremely valuable resource that includes links to your particular states licensing agency. Furthermore, if you have relatives in other states or are planning to move you can read about the process in those states as well! Each state recognizes other states concealed carry license, but not all states recognize each others. This is called concealed carry reciprocity, and we include a nifty map that shows all of the states that recognize reciprocity with each other. If you have a concealed carry license in one state and are traveling to another state, make sure you know all of the laws pertaining to that state, and see if they will recognize your home states concealed carry license. If the state does not recognize your concealed carry license, make sure you are not carrying on any premises where carrying of a firearm is restricted because your license will not apply. It is always a good idea to check with local laws and regulations before you travel with a firearm, however I always recommend traveling with the means to protect yourself, your family, and your property, because you never know when you are going to need it! Practically every single state in the Union requires that concealed carry license holders are trained with their firearm and know the safe operation and handling of the weapon. Some states even require you to be trained with your firearm before you are granted a license. Every state has multiple highly skilled, concealed carry license trainers that can help you know how to handle your firearm, and be better prepared to utilize your firearm in the unfortunate instance where you must utilize the tool for the protection of yourself and others. Taking a class in the proper handling of a concealed weapon is always a sound investment. Every concealed carry license holder should be well versed in the handling of their firearm and we recommend ensuring that your skill in handling the firearm is refreshed at least once a month. Practice carrying your firearm in a manner that ensures it stays concealed, unless you are open carrying, and practice being able to wield your firearm safely and efficiently. A concealed weapon does you no good if you cannot wield the weapon. Finally, as a responsible concealed carry license holder make sure that you understand all of the laws that dictate you carrying a concealed weapon. Laws vary from state to state, and locality to locality, so ensure that you stay up to date with the laws that govern where, and how, you can carry a weapon for personal protection. Conceal Carry HQ offers a Concealed Carry Law page that briefly discusses federal law that governs the carrying of a weapon. That page can be found here http://concealcarryhq.net/concealed-carry-law/ Thank you for visiting Concealed Carry HQ. We sincerely hope that the information contained on this page will motivate you to obtain a concealed carry license, and practice your second amendment rights! Read More »
