The right to carry firearms in each U.S. state

Illinois and Wisconsin are "no-issue" states : concealed carry is generally forbidden.

http://www.justfacts.com/images/guncontrol/guncontrol_ad.jpgIn 10 "may-issue" states,  applicants must often present a reason for carrying a firearm to an issuing authority, who then decides (based on his/her discretion) if the applicant receives a permit. These are : Alabama, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Maryland, Massachussetts, New Jersey and New York.

The 38 remaining states are "shall-issue" states : there, concealed carry permits are issued to all  qualified applicants.

Slideshows

... (or "powerpoints" as you often call them) are not so easy to make. As for technique, you can use your computer, all right. As for texts and images, you can write your text, insert illustrations and vary the way you present them... all right.

But how can you make your slideshows effective ?

A little help to understand Don McMillan's fast speech :
