Two maps that will infuriate progs and demonstrate the foundational wisdom of federalism

By Thomas Lifson

Don Surber posted an amazing pair of maps yesterday, showing the way that federalism is working to enable citizens to defend themselves with firearms.  While the federal Constitution guarantees the right to bear arms, states regulate firearms licensing, and in the past 35 years, a landslide of states has recognized the right to carry a firearm.  Check out the night and day contrast between 1986 and 2021:

In fact, the creator of these maps, Jeff Doge, made a gif showing the year-by-year progression of the right to carry a firearm:  See .gif animated maps at the top.

Don comments:

Without firing a shot (except at the firing range), Americans have won a revolution -- state by state.

This is correct.  The "no issue" red states have gone from predominant to zero.  The "may issue" states, where the right to carry (i.e., bear) arms can be infringed, are now confined to the coastal progressive enclaves of the Northeast (except the far NE) and California and Hawaii.  They are small islands of repression in a sea of liberty.
