Cornyn introduces Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014

Rep. Steve Stockman is free to make claims about what he thinks that Senator John Cornyn is going to say as he hopes to move poll numbers during their Texas Seante primary race, but what Cornyn has actually proposed in the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014 looks pretty darn nice.

Here’s the text of the press release:

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) today introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014, which would allow individuals with concealed carry privileges in their home state to exercise those rights in any other state that also has concealed carry laws. The legislation is cosponsored by U.S. Sens. Thune (R-SD), Vitter (R-LA), Graham (R-SC), Boozman (R-AR), Inhofe (R-OK), Crapo (R-ID), Burr (R-NC), Cochran (R-MS), Johanns (R-NE), Enzi (R-WY), Moran (R-KS), Roberts (R-KS), and Portman (R-OH).

“This bill strengthens two of our nation’s most fundamental rights, ensuring law-abiding gun owners can lawfully carry their weapons into like-minded states, while respecting the rights of states to adopt laws that are best-suited for the people of that state. This is an important affirmation of the Second Amendment and one that has been a top priority of law-abiding gun owners in Texas for some time. It is time to get this done.

What are the rules on states recognizing the marriage license of a gay couple from another state?

Seems like it should be similar. Also drivers licenses....they go across state lines....

How long has he been in senate and now with an election coming up with his a$$ on the line he introduces this. He is insulting my intelligence but I am sure he will get people votes because of it.

They don't, if they don't have same-sex marriages there. That may change when the Supreme Court rules.

As a practical matter, driver's licenses pretty much have to--- BUT you can't live in Pennsylvania full-time and use your driver's license from Arizona forever, either.

Then there's the matter of Interstate Commerce, which is constitutionally protected, regarding driving.

Personally, I'd like to see the same argument on Interstate Commerce made with regard to transport of personal firearms, and taken to the SCOTUS.

Legislatively, we came close with the failed Universal Background Check bill last year. It had a provision which would have made it much easier to pass through intermediate states with firearms on the way from one permissive state (like Pennsylvania) to another (like Maine). Among other things, you'd have had a clear right to stop and sleep at a motel in New York or Massachusetts overnight.

That would only be reasonable....I would love to be able to pop over to Jersey to pick up a friend without having to make sure I'm unarmed and vulnerable first.....
