Had to laugh at regular commenter Larry's post about my "summer Training regimen." He is, of course, right...we have a different definition of summer up at the Secret Hidden Bunker...it has to do with when the snowfall drops to once a week, the ice melts on the reservoir and the bears wake up. We have by necessity a more liberal definition of "summer" temperatures...

Interesting to see National Concealed Carry Reciprocity come back around...years ago I wrote in the WSJ Online when W was first elected that reciprocity was an issue that most of us in the culture agreed on. That's certainly still true, but a number of factors have taken a little heat out of the argument. The first is the relentless juggernaut of concealed carry itself...as we've talked about extensively on the podcast and the shows, concealed carry liberalization is, for all intents and purposes, unstoppable. It might take years to push it into every nook and cranny of the Northeast (and the occupied state of Illinois), but CCW is an amazingly powerful trend. There's also the fact that states have added to their own reciprocity lists as they become more comfortable with CCW. Back in the earliest days, we all had complex algorithms of which ot-of-state permits we needed to get to cover the most states...that's a lot easier now. Add Constitutional Carry, which wasn't even on the radar a few years ago, and the undeniable rise of open carry, and the normalization process is farther along than any of us imagined it would be.
I see Wyoming is proceeding with Constitutional Carry, as is Colorado. Both are historically open carry states...you need no permit to carry a gun on your hip, but as many have noted if you put on a coat you now need a concealed carry permit. So what we're really talking about is coat control. I suspect Wyoming will become the 4th Constitutional Carry state, but even if Colorado's initiative passes it will run up against Governor Moonbeam Lite.
