I think the concern here, Al, is Bondi's wording that a permit is an "affirmative defense" to commission of a crime
The actual wording doesn't seem to be in the statutes, but it's implied by the idea that concealed carry is a felony unless the person carrying has a permit. That's the thing with affirmative defense: the defendant has to prove his innocence. Georgia was that way until recently.
