National reciprocity for concealed carry has cleared its first major hurdle – on Wednesday afternoon the House passed the “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act” by a margin of 231-198. This is HUGE news for gun advocates and the NRA.
From Conservative Tribune:
If the bill becomes a law, concealed carry permits would function much more like drivers licenses, and allow a legally authorized person to carry concealed across state lines.
Many states already recognize the concealed carry permits from other areas, but the process of interstate travel while armed can be confusing and full of legal pitfalls.
“For the millions of law-abiding citizens who lawfully carry concealed to protect themselves, for conservatives who want to strengthen our Second Amendment rights, and for the overwhelming majority of Americans who support concealed carry reciprocity, Christmas came early,” explained Rep. Richard Hudson, a Republican from North Carolina.
The legislation had the support of 24 attorneys general throughout the country, along with the National Rifle Association.
Do you support this bill becoming a law? Should people who concealed carry be able to do so across state lines?
