One yard at a time?

I wasn’t clear enough, sorry about that. Yes, I lived through then and a couple more decades. I been carrying since 1961. Never considered getting anything other than a game hunting license, drivers license, vehicle license plate. Always thought the Constitution was like a roofer’s union card, covers everything. Been stopped many times, some time pistol found, some time I tell the cop what I got, some time not, never a problem. No arrest, no ticket to appear (for weapon charge). Few years ago, I conceded and got a ccl from my current state. Originally from Chicago. Long time ago. Now back to the point. When the first infringement occurred and passed SCOTUS, precedent was set, game over. Want to get our rightful rights back? Run that very first infringement back through SCOTUS and get a different out come, all the rest of the bogus regulations fall apart. Thank for me clarify my post.

We’d have to roll it back an awful long way to the early post colonial period when cities started instituting limitations on carry.

While those early laws themselves will never be directly challenged they have all be undone now that the SCOTUS has ruled unabiguously that all states must come up with a practical system for either licensed carry or constitutional carry allowing all eligible citizens to lawfully carry off of their own property.

We’re getting our rights back slowly but it’s been a terribly long fight.

Don’t have to go back any further than the first SCOTUS ruling on the 2cnd amendment that’s where the problem began. All those old town laws you mentioned never went to SCOTUS. SCOTUS giving states the option of setting up a licensing system was unconstitutional to begin with. Enjoyed the conversation. You may have the last word. Thank you again.
