We went that way in Ohio last year. Just keep in mind without a permit you may not be able to carry in states that still require one. I'll maintain my Ohio permit since it gives me the ability to carry in surrounding states that have not gone constitutional yet.

The majority of US states are now "Constitutional Carry" states.

It was signed and I believe there is at least one more state working on it right now.

 As much as I dont like seeing more and more restrictions on buying and carrying guns, I have to wonder what will happen as more and more folks will be buying and carrying guns without any type of training.

So maybe you could point to the portion of the constitution where it says "the right of the people who have been trained to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" I've been unable to find that in any of the amendments in the copy I have.
 We already have what you allude to going on. You can't train away stupidity from some people in any form.

Had a family member huff and puff about FL's constitutional carry.  She's scared of the bloodbath and increased school shootings that will occur.  I started to tell her half the states already have this and they're fine.  She figuratively shut the door in my face and ended the conversation. 

The fear of guns is so deeply ingrained in some that no amount of facts will enlighten them.

First off just to clarify where I stand on Guns and the 2A. Whenever I hear people freaking out about the "mass shootings" I say to help solve the issue is more guns, in the hands of good people who are "educated/trained", key words Educated and Trained. We all know of someone, or heard of that person, who should not have a gun in their hands.

good news for florida.

is someone legally being able to carry a gun going to make the same person feel ok about illegally using it to kill someone who was not a threat to them or anybody else?  If they wanted to commit the crime, they would not care about illegally bringing the gun to commit the crime?

i have similar family members, who say similar things....

A 5 year permit to carry here in Iowa cost $25 for renewal. It's not required for consealed carry but replaces the need for a federal background check phone call for a transfer. We'll worth the cost of the renewal. As long as there good for the background check I'll renew my carry permit.

Interesting, I thought NICS is required of all FFLs for sale or transfer regardless of state law or permits.

Iowa use to require a permit to aquire for a pistol or a consealed carry permit to purchase a handgun. It was valid for long guns also. State handles the background check for the permit and the ATF recognizes it . A permit to carry required a background check  and fingerprints along with a qualifying 80% score. Renewed every 5 years with a new background check.
The purchase permit was dropped first and the carry permit a few years later.  I still renew it when it expires for state carry permit reciprocity and background checks.

Indiana requires fingerprints, background check and local law enforcement approval for a license to carry a handgun. I did the lifetime renewal last time so would not have to hassle with it again. Now we have constitutional carry but I still carry out of state so glad I have the permit (which you cam still get).  The issue was that there were some localities where it was virtually impossible to get local approval. Having a carry license does nothing to make it easier to purchase a firearm.

 Whats your point? I didnt say that there should be mandatory training. I said, I just wonder what the outcome will be from many more  untrained gun owners carrying.
