While some states are pushing for stricter gun control, others are trying to loosen gun controls and restore some of the 2nd Amendment rights to citizens. Yesterday, North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum signed a constitutional carry law. 

Gov. Doug Burgum signed a bill into law allowing qualified people to carry a concealed firearm without a permit, his office announced late Thursday night.
