the United States, carrying a concealed weapon (CCW, also known
as concealed carry) is the legal authorization
for private citizens to carry a handgun or other weapons in public
in a concealed manner, either on the person or in close proximity
to the person. In some states, it is sufficient to be a resident
or permanent resident (greencard holder). Under current federal
legal precedent, it is considered constitutional under the Second
Amendment for states to have concealed carry licensing that permits
concealed carried weapons, or even not to require any permits for
concealed carry weapons; for example, any legal gun owner in the
state of Vermont may carry concealed weapons with no permitting
required. It is likewise constitutional under the Second Amendment
for states to have laws that prohibit concealed carried weapons,
although only two states have done so. Laws governing concealed
carried weapons vary from state to state. Some states restrict
concealed carried weapons to a single handgun, whereas others
permit multiple handguns or martial arts weapons to be carried.
Various states give different terms for licenses or permits to
carry a concealed firearm, such as a Concealed Handgun License/Permit
(CHL/CHP), Concealed (Defensive/Deadly) Weapon Permit/License (CDWL/CWP/CWL),
Concealed Carry Permit/License (CCP/CCL), License To Carry (Firearms)
(LTC/LTCF), Carry of Concealed Deadly Weapon license (CCDW), and
similar. Many states that issue licenses to carry a concealed handgun
also allow the practice of open carry by the license holder, and
another 31 states allow open carry without any license.
