    Here in Minnesota, you are allowed to carry in your home as well as your place of business without a carry permit. Which is what I have done for some time. I do not carry outside of those circumstances. There is a certain amount of ambiguity, however, on transporting said firearm between the two places and I have been concerned that I'll forfeit all or many of my firearms rights should I find myself in the wrong circumstances. We don't want that! :eek:

    I don't like the idea of this but I can't afford to be stubborn here. So, for $100 for a class (completed last year) and another $100 for the permit, I get to 'enjoy' rights I believe I should have for free.

    I also know for a fact that now this is tied to my truck plates, etc and a routine traffic stop will probably be a little less than routine from now on - even though I am not a criminal and never will be one. Veiled gun registration at it's finest. Minnesota is a 'middle of the road' state when it comes to firearms ownership. We have been 'blessed' with liberal hunters so at least we aren't in the same shape as NY, CT, CA and a few others. You DO need either a CC permit or a 'permit to purchase' either a handgun or a semi-auto. As if the FFL process does not also cover this?

    Oh well, now that I am getting the permit, I suppose I'll find more reasons/places to carry lol

    Unless you work at a convenience store...home and work are the places you are least likely to be attacked. You are in much more danger walking to your car at the mall at night, or pumping gas after dark. A concealed carry permit is a great thing to have. I carry everywhere that I can.

    I work in a trucking terminal, located in a somewhat shady area of town (they usually are). I have seen a number of undesirables loitering near my building at all hours.

    How does the state allow people to carry in their homes? Damn that is stupid are you joking? Do they have Domestic Police patrolling your living room? There are four states that allow the freedom to carry without the permission or tax to exercise your rights.:)

    I agree we shouldn't have to essentially ask permission to exercise our rights.

    However, given the political climate nowadays, I will not ever carry illegally. They would strip me of my rights in a New York Minute. Thus, I play their game.

    :(

    If it were up to some, we would need the state's permission to use our own bathroom.

    Good for you Chloe,, now you are not so limited on where you can carry, I agree though, funny how they can charge for your second amendment right. I'd like to see them try to charge for other rights, such as voting, or to a fair trail......
    When its not the antis rights being infringed its cool, but start charging liberals for free speech,, wouldn't go over so well. The taxes, permit charges are an infringement in themselves.

    You don't need their permission to use the bathroom, but they dictate how much water is used when you flush, how many gallons per min flow out of the shower head, and now if you want a certain brightness in the bathroom what type of bulb you can use ( no more incandescent bulbs 40w and above)

    Not so, Grasshopper. It varies by county (Hennepin is $100. I know I just paid it)

    This whole CC thing is primarily a money making scheme! The Feds keep the pot stirred with gun Control threats and enough laws changed and created to keep the panic legit! The States paint the picture that your right to own and carry a gun is a privilege and not a constitutional right, so between the panic stir by the Feds and the States lie, we are more than happy to Give the State our Hard earned money for a Right that we was born with! As much as Gun manufactures Scream for Gun rights and claim to be a sympathetic savior in all of this, they are getting mega rich due to the explosion in gun sales that has been staged by our government. And the Gun store owners that seem to detest gun control, that's really a lie as well, the panic has greatly aided in there success! And the same goes with ammo manufactures!! The threat of Gun control will always be with us, no matter who our leaders might be! It's a well oiled, highly successful business for a great number of people! Nobody really wants to rob you of your guns, just your money!!

    I wholeheartedly disagree. There are plenty of people in this country that would like nothing better than to take our guns.

    I know you will. Glad you got your permit. I carry everywhere I go...if a place of business has their little "no guns" sign on the door, I don't go there unless I have to (read that government offices or hospital/doctor offices).

    I could bet Everything I had that the large majority of all gun control BS that is fabricated is business or money driven! Like alcohol or Tobacco, to much revenue generated in the gun industry to abolish guns! But the so called panic that the country seems to be in?? A ton(millions) of people have found a gold mine in the panic of the American People! For that reason alone, the panic isn't going away! We can scream, *****, vote, or throw dirt in the air! The power of the dollar wins every time!!

    Then our Dollar needs to be Stronger, our Voices Louder! When I first got here I said"Hey, a state that lets me enjoy all of my rights" then I thought about it a bit, and decided to take the class and Get the CCW anyway....Sucks that two of the States that border me have Handgun restrictions, and another one is leaning that way.

    The main reason I got my permit so many years ago was based on our ambiguity in the car carry laws. With the permit you are essentially covered, but without the permit you are essentially left to the discretion of the individual officer. While an arrest for car carrying in the manner I chose probably wouldn't result in conviction, it's still an arrest. You still have lawyers, bondsmen, lost time, and major inconvenience. At that time many counties and cities also decided they needed to "enhance" state firearms laws which meant just crossing an imaginary line on the map could get you arrested if you didn't comply with these enhancements. With a permit the great majority of these enhancements were no longer a problem.

    It was expensive, it was a major PITA, and it was time consuming, but I did it. I don't regret it.

    What is to perceived to be a privilege and not a right, becomes more valuable to obtain! And worth more to most! We take are rights way more for granted than we care to admit! The panic BS has gave the illusion that a born right is a privilege! As time goes by people tend to adopt that illusion or drink the koolaid of being privileged to own/carry a gun and not a born right!! The panic assures that several layers of people profit, the majority of these people passively encourage or promote panic for business purposes Not every "support the 2nd amendment" sign you see is delivering a purely pro gun message, but reminds People of the panic and they better run out and give there money to multiple sources! In no way, am I putting every politician, State Senator, gun store owner, ammo manufacture, gun manufacture as part of this huge business scheme! But does most of these folks value the dollar more than our gun rights! Sadly, that is probably true! A phase or a staged panic? Time will tell, cause phases end! Successful business just cultivates better ways to be more successful.

    One thing I forgot to put in my earlier post, and a fellow Floridian might call me on it. Those municipality generated enhancements no longer exist in Florida. The state firearm statutes are the law of the land down here. No matter where you are in Florida you are governed by the same set of rules.
