Republican Congressman Introduces Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act
- North Carolina Republican Rep. Richard Hudson Tuesday introduced the bipartisan Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 Tuesday. The bill, initially introduced in 2015 by Hudson, has 58 of its original cosponsors.
"Our Second Amendment right doesn't disappear when we cross state lines, and this legislation guarantees that. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 is a common sense solution to a problem too many Americans face. It will provide law-abiding citizens the right to conceal carry and travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state codes or onerous civil suits," Hudson said in a statement.
Supported by major Second Amendment organizations, like the NRA, the legislation would permit individuals with state issued conceal carry licenses or permits to conceal a handgun in any other state that allows concealed carry.
This would mean that even law abiding individuals who are residents in tough restrictive gun law states like Maryland, California, and New York, for example, can use a non-resident concealed carry permit from another state, like Utah, to conceal carry in their own state.(Excerpt) Read more at: dailycaller.com ...
