Google turned this up. I found it really interesting. Basically, it says concealed weapons laws came from the southern states, where they were a response to the problem of dueling. Duels were common, and deadly, so the legislatures outlawed them, which resulted in men attacking and killing with a concealed weapon, rather than engaging in a duel. So, concealed weapons were banned. None of it worked, though, because the juries refused to convict. But the concealed weapons laws remained in effect.

It doesn't address how the laws came to be adopted in the north and west.
