Have gun, will travel: Groups push for states to honor concealed-carry laws

Gun-rights groups have high hopes for a new bill looking to grant “national reciprocity” for Americans with concealed firearm permits, introduced just as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office.

The bill, put forward in the new Congress last week by Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed-carry license to have that license recognized in any other state that allows concealed carry. This also would apply to states that recognize so-called “constitutional carry” where a license is not required for a concealed handgun.

The goal, Hudson says, is to prevent gun owners from getting caught in a patchwork of state-by-state laws.

“Your driver’s license works in every state, so why doesn’t your concealed-carry permit?” Hudson’s office said in an accompanying fact sheet.

The perils that concealed-carry permit holders can face recently were brought to national attention in 2014 when Shaneen Allen, a Philadelphia mother of two, was arrested and faced three years in prison after mistakenly entering New Jersey in possession of a loaded handgun.

    If the USSC deemed it required for every state to recognize the marriage of every state, regardless if that marriage does not meet the definition of marriage approved by the voters of that state, would not the same seem to apply here? My drivers license is good in any state, why not my CCL?

    It would be better to abolish all gun control laws and allow carry in all states. That would end these shootings in so-called gun free zones.

  • Tiger says:

    No it is time for every single American citizen who is conservative or not with these Progressive/Communists to arm themselves and stop allowing these BLM to tear up Malls and to force their violence on all of us. They are planning to have 90,000, 90,000 people against how many cops? to stop the inauguration of Trump. It is time to stand up and be accounted for it is time to fight fire with fire.

    Now I know the end game is to get O because that putrid rotting corpse is still in charge to call Martial Law, and hopefully we can hold our fire but by God when it comes down to them pushing and beating us up we fight. Or at least I do and my purse is an arsenal any SOB come at me I fight and I win.

    People in my area know I don’t fool around, Crazy Army nurse and yes I shoot first and ask questions later. ENOUGH ENOUGH ENOUGH

        Thank you we are still on the brink and I don’t trust O one second. Hollywood is asking him to call Martial Law if this mayhem planned for Trump’s inauguration comes to fruition with 90,000 showing up then blood could be spilled and it will be on O and Democrats along with Hollywood’s hands.

        We are not out of the Deep, Dark Woods yet.

          I agree and I also believe the guards should use all methods available to handle the crowds who are assembled to interfere with the performance of government.

          1. Tiger says:

            I don’t like that they told how many cops there would be. I think they should have just said they had it covered.

      Carry On…Tiger!

        Aye Aye and Ten Four and out.

      I think I am in love with you. I at least am in love with what you say. It does and always has puzzled me how we have democrats and republicans who have opposing ideas rather than the right thing being the right thing. The people are paying for everything and the politicians are buying more than we can pay for. When people say that Bernie was the right man because he wanted the tax payers to pay for everyone’s college education when we have a 21 trillion dollar deficit and that doesn’t include the the so called entitlements we can’t cover. *** We had a person running for president that should have been running for the border. Now we have all these so clled reliable intelligence reports that say Russia hacked emails to favor Trump. If they did, the fact remains that the information that was released has not been called false. Those emails were to be turned over to the congress but Hillary chose to destroy 52% and have the illegal server scrubbed and the devices destroyed with hammers and saying that information was not important.

      1. Tiger says:

        Well that is a change most want to strangle me so thank you and my guess is because we are birds of a feather with the clear vision of a hawk you like what I say. I like what you say. You are right and my father always used to say: “Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong and people make the Gray Areas because they know this is truth.”

        We have had so much incredibly Wrong information thrown at us via the real FAKE media that has supported O all these years and kept him afloat while demonizing the REAL media it is almost preposterous to think they would do such a thing when so much Wrong was being put out there and no Right.

        The day I heard Hillary go to congress to say good-bye to Popeye Reid and she said: “Fake news has consequences” I knew it was the new mantra. Just never thought they would make it Russia when they had no facts at all and still don’t. Hillary had enough on her to bury her 50 ft under and it would take that far to get the stench off her. Then now to accuse Russia of Fake news without proof, are they saying Russia convinced Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, Mark Levin and all to tell Fake news? Or everybody on FOX? They are saying the only Real news is the main media and they have been the Fake news all along.

        This is how stupid they believe us to be. We are not out of the mess til Trump inaugurated.
