America's First Freedom - August 2021 - 51

IT'S NOT JUST PERMITLESS CARRY
Expanding our rights as gun owners at the state level
isn't just about permitless carry. In May, South Carolina
Gov. Henry McMaster (R) signed into law legislation that
removed the restriction on the open carry of firearms
for those who have a valid Concealed Weapons Permit
(CWP). This removes the Palmetto State from the handful
of states-such as California and New York-that prohibit
carrying firearms in such a way. The new law also eliminates
the $50 application fee for a CWP, improving access to
the right-to-carry for all law-abiding South Carolinians,
regardless of their economic means.
In Kansas, the legislature overrode Gov. Laura Kelly's (D)
Larry Stewart
Is
veto of a pro-gun omnibus bill in May. This bill established
that Kansas would recognize all out-of-state concealed
carry permits, allow Kansans between the ages of
18 and 20 to apply for a Kansas concealed-carry permit,
establish an alternative license to carry a concealed
handgun that may be issued during a declared state of
emergency and create a Restoration of Rights process
for individuals to reestablish their Second Amendment
right to possess a firearm, upon expungement of
certain convictions.
Nebraska also passed a pro-gun omnibus bill, and its
governor, Pete Ricketts (R), supported the state's lawabiding
gun owners by signing it. The bill made important
improvements to the state's carry-permit law, including
a renewal-notification requirement being sent four
months prior to the permit's expiration and allowing a
permit holder to renew an expired permit if done within
30 business days after the permit expired. The bill also
made a clarification to state law regarding transporting
firearms, which was necessary due to a Nebraska Supreme
Court ruling that set a dangerous vehicle-concealed-carry
precedent. The clarification states that, as long as a firearm
is unloaded and stored in a case, a person who is not
prohibited from possessing a firearm can transport that
firearm to, or from, any location where it can be lawfully
possessed, carried and used.
We hope to be able to report more pro-gun advances at
the state level in the near future.
B
ack in the good old days, when you
could walk into a bar or restaurant with
a jukebox, you were always guaranteed to find a number
of Restless Heart songs in the catalog. " I'll Still Be Loving You, "
" Bluest Eyes in Texas " and " Why Does It Have to Be (Wrong or
Right) " are just a few of their hits you might have queued up, all
with Larry Stewart's lead vocals. Restless Heart charted 18 Top-40
singles, including six No. 1 hits. But what's even more impressive
is the career Larry Stewart crafted and maintained over four
decades. With additional success as a solo artist and now as part
of supergroup the Frontmen of Country, Stewart has proven
himself as a force in country music, entertaining audiences around
the world. NRA's Vanessa Shahidi asked Stewart a few questions
to learn about a lesser-known side of the country superstar.
VS: Do you have a favorite personal firearm?
LS: My new favorite firearm is a Makarov pistol. It fits my
small, fat hand so well and is easy to shoot. It finds the target
so effortlessly.
VS: Having toured not only domestically but also
internationally, you've met people from all over the
world. Tell us what makes you proud to be an American.
LS: In my travels for 30 years with Restless Heart and now the
Frontmen of Country, you learn so much about other people
and cultures. When Restless Heart started working with the
Air Force Reserve, literally flying around the globe, I'd never
experienced anything like it. Then the Frontmen of Country
did some tours with Navy Entertainment and that changed
my life. To meet these young men and women made me so
proud of them. That's when I realized how great my country
was. I couldn't be more proud to be an American.
