What Does Unrestricted Mean?
Unrestricted means that a permit is not required to carry a concealed handgun. It is also known as Constitutional Carry or permitless carry. There are states that are fully unrestricted, where no permit is required for open or concealed carry; other states are partially unrestricted, where certain forms of concealed carry may be legal without a permit, while other forms of carry require a permit. There are currently 12 states with permitless carry, while three additional states have permitless carry for residents only.
