    In MI it's a $105 fee to apply and it'll take a month or two to go through in my county. Obama has made it pretty clear he doesn't want law abiding citizens to have the right to defend themselves and from an objective standpoint McCain is a failure and Obama has a very good chance at winning this election. If that's the case I'm sure a CPL wouldn't be grandfathered in and that would be $105 flushed down the drain plus $60-80 on an IWB holster I'll never get the chance to use. :hs: I'm thinking about spending that money on a nice scope + mount + rings for my 10/22 since really that's what I shoot 95% of the time anyway.

    What are your thoughts WMD?

    Plan around the laws on the books, not imaginary future laws.

    I'd get it now before there is any chance you couldn't get it later.

    The presidency will have no effect on concealed carry law.

    Some of you guys have a serious obama complex :mamoru:

    (I hear he's going to break into gun owners homes and rape us in our sleep)

    .

    The president doesn't make laws, he can only veto them once they have been passed by the House and Senate.

    Concealed carry is getting a lot of positive momentum in Washington right now believe it or not. There is talk of national carry reciprocity and other goodies. I say go for it.

    Has the Supreme court ever looked at if these "Exectutive Orders" are in the least bit legal?

    I mean we have a system of checks and balances for a reason.

    Get it. Not sure how bad your county is, but I had mine two days after the gun board met.

    Considering there is now a rush on CCW permits, there must be a good reason to get one. :dunno:

    I know the classes around here fill up quick.

    Doug, dude, get one. You'd be crazy not to.

    And like has been said, plan around what's currently the law. If Obama ever tried to do away with the right to carry, some crazy redneck would put a bullet through his noggin so don't worry about that.

    Legal or not, they'll find some technicality/loophole to make it legal. The constitution doesn't mean shit anymore to politicians, they make whatever laws they want, then find a way to make it legal through some technicality in the wording of the constitution.
    Just look at Roe vs. Wade. (For the record, I'm pro-abortion). Using the phrase "all persons born in the US..." as if it specifically meant born children rather than unborn fetuses. Pro-life or pro-choice, you know that's bullshit.

    If you don't get it, don't get it in protest to the fact that you should not have to ask permission to do something our constitution grants you the freedom to do.

    That being said, concealed carry isn't going to disappear in the next 2 months, and the new president, whoever it will be, won't even be in office till January.

    I do, I just don't know if it will be a waste or not. Either way I get paid on wednesday and I'll go down to the sheriff's office to fill out the paper work. :o
