24 States Ease Gun Control Laws

In what is being touted as a major sign of progress resulting from the legislative efforts of the NRA, the GOA, and others, Mike McCarville reports that 24 states have eased their laws restricting firearms use.

According to McCarville,

Among other things, legislatures have allowed firearms to be carried in cars, made it illegal to ask job candidates whether they own a gun, and expanded agreements that make permits to carry handguns in one state valid in another.

Some states, like Oklahoma, have broadened the protections afforded citizens who defend themselves. Oklahoma's "Make My Day" law is an example.
