Chuck said we need to get more active on Gun Carry Laws. A discussion was held about what different counties would prosecute as open carry. Chuck would like to see us get a bill that clarifies open carry and define a journey. Stand your ground law also needs clarification.

In our question and answer session with her it was brought up that we would like to know how all the candidates stand on the second amendment.
