One could say Constitutional/Permitless Carry is as simple as being able to carry a handgun without a permit…but that'd be wrong. Why do gun owners refer to this law as “complicated carry” It can be an easy trap with severe penalties for the uninformed and irresponsible. Don’t be one of those people.
