Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017

One note I found interesting for our NJ, NY, & MD neighbors ...

Quote:“My legislative intent is to ensure a non-resident carry permit is recognized, and I’ve confirmed this with legislative counsel and Judiciary Committee staff,” Hudson said.

Many gun owners in states that use a “may issue” permitting process, such as California or New Jersey, are not able to obtain concealed carry permits from their home state—even if they’ve passed a background check and met the training requirements—since the final decision in those states is left at the discretion of government officials. However, those same gun owners may be able to obtain a non-resident permit from a state with different gun laws. Under Hudson’s proposal, that permit would allow them to carry across the country—including in their home state.

That means an individual from Washington, D.C., where concealed carry permits are difficult to obtain even for those who complete the required training and pass a background check, could get a concealed carry permit from Virginia that would allow them to legally carry in the district. 

I think this bill has a serious chance of passing this year.  Although I can see CA, NJ and NY having a fit!! 

I tried to remind our detractors that it says, "Shall Not Be Infringed".  Seems like 4 easily understood words.

Better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it!

Not the perfect answer but better than what we have now.

A version of the Hearing Protection Act has been introduced again in the Senate.  It might have a prayer now too.
