Mississippi gun laws, since 2012, have changed to become some of the most pro second amendment in the country. The Governor of Mississippi has signed a Bill allowing Mississippians to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. The new laws have created confusion among several Mississippi gun owners about their gun rights.
In relatively short order since Republicans took control of the Legislature in 2012, Mississippi’s gun laws have changed from fairly restrictive to among the most permissive in the country.
On April 15, Gov. Phil Bryant signed into law a measure making Mississippi one of 11 states that allows “constitutional carry,” or carrying a concealed firearm without a state-issued concealed carry permit. However, there are still caveats as to how and where someone can carry a concealed gun without a permit.
