Guam is in an interesting situation. It’s not technically a state (it’s a “territory,” a leftover from America’s imperialist drive at the turn of the 20th century), but it’s still governed by the laws of the United States. Mostly. Anyway, Guam is technically part of the 9th circuit of the Federal court system, the same court that recently ruled against “may issue” licensing of concealed carry permits as a violation of the 2nd Amendment. The legislature of Guam saw the writing on the wall and has just passed a law turning their “may issue” territory into a “shall issue” paradise. From the local news . . .
Bill 296 would align Guam’s firearms law with other jurisdictions and require the police department to issue concealed firearms permits to residents who meet certain requirements. […] Currently, Guam has a “may issue” law, which gives the police chief to authority to approve concealed firearms applications at his discretion. While the police chief would retain his authority under the provisions of Bill 296, applicants would no longer need to show they have a good reason for applying for the permit.
The bill goes to the governor’s desk, who can either sign it or ignore it for 10 days and it will turn into a law. Or they can veto, but since only 2 legislators voted against the new law it’s not likely to remain vetoed for long.
