Some of the "more stupider" restrictions:
Can't carry in any
establishment that serves alcohol. Who woulda thought Urban Burrito sells beer? Oops!
Can't carry in a funeral procession....why not, the guy's already dead?
Can't carry in a parade, or as a spectator to a parade...guess my float-driving days are over...damn!
Short answer, Yes: With a permit you can CCW most
places. Without it, you can't CCW anywhere
Reciprocity and "permit-less" handgun purchases are a big plus, too.
