Right-to-carry States Map

Say Uncle has a map of right-to-carry laws. I like that the map points out gun free zones, though I have two points.

1) I wish that 98 percent of Montana was shown as green. You only need a permit to carry a concealed handgun in urban areas, which make up virtually none of the state.

2) I wish that they had shown the other big gun free zone shootings, for example, at the Lubby's Cafeteria in Texas in 1991.

John-

The map does display the location of the Luby's Cafeteria massacre...it happened in Killeen, TX.

Thanks, I just looked at it too quickly.

This map seems innaccurate to me.

I live in WA. To my knowledge, OPEN carry is not permitted.

See David Workman's treatise on concealed carry in WA.

All my best...
