Beware of some 'pro-gun' states.
OK has been permit-less since November 2019 but on its books it still makes it a FELONY to carry into: polling places on election days, courthouses, bars, gaming establishments and onto school campuses including colleges and universities. TX is fairly pro-gun and has the same felony no-gun zones as OK. NV shockingly makes it a felony to carry concealed in most places without a CCW. Even CA only makes it a misdemeanor to conceal-carry sans permit in most cases. Anytime any jurisdiction inside the USA makes it a felony to conceal/open carry under any circumstance or otherwise makes it a felony to exercise any right under the Bill of Rights, such legislation is anti-American and a gross violation of the same Bill of Rights. As far as I know, two permit-less states, ID and AZ don't make it a felony to conceal carry anywhere. There might be a few misdemeanor weapons charges possible in those jurisdictions at worst. ID requires an 'enhanced' permit to carry on college campuses. Why there is so much fear and getting one's panties in a knot about guns on campuses of schools beats me.
The feds might make it a felony to carry certain places though. I now prefer to use the more accurate term "permit-less" instead of "constitutional carry". Just because a state might be "permit-less" or branded as "constitutional carry" doesn't mean gross violations of the 2nd A can't still occur there. If the USA were truly and perfectly "constitutional carry" on each and every square inch of American soil, there would be no CCW requirements anywhere, no gun-free zones anywhere and no prohibitions against the right to keep and bear arms as well except for maybe a mental institution, a jail or a prison for those lawfully held their involuntarily as convicted inmates or those deemed by a judge to be danger to themselves or others.
I'd have to say ID, AZ and AK are the top three gun-rights-friendly states of all. They seem to offer the fewest state legislative violations of the 2nd A if any and the least severe penalties for going against any token anti-gun laws that might still exist there.
