While some states are pushing for stricter gun control, others are trying to loosen gun controls and restore some of the 2nd Amendment rights to citizens. Yesterday, North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum signed a constitutional carry law. 

Gov. Doug Burgum signed a bill into law allowing qualified people to carry a concealed firearm without a permit, his office announced late Thursday night.

The Republican governor signed the so-called “constitutional carry” bill, which allows those who are not otherwise prevented from having a Class 2 concealed weapons permit and have had a state Department of Transportation-issued ID for a year to carry a concealed firearm. North Dakota currently offers Class 1 and Class 2 permits with reciprocity with other states, but House Bill 1169 is only effective in North Dakota.

Critics of the bill said other everyday activities, such as driving, require a government-issued license. But supporters said it reaffirms a constitutional right, and noted the Class 2 permit only requires the completion of an open-book test and a criminal records check.
