National Right to Carry Reciprocity Legislation

In addition to what we expect to be major changes coming out of Donald Trump’s presidential office, there’s a lot going on nationwide as well with regard to the national right to carry reciprocity legislation. National Right-to-Carry reciprocity legislation is gaining support across the nation. In fact, one Republican Senator announced on December 5 that he has drafted a National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill that he plans to introduce when the next session of Congress convenes. Here’s a run down of some states who have introduced National Right to Carry Reciprocity legislation.

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, introduced Senate Bill 498. This would allow people with concealed carry permits from their home state, or who are not prohibited from carrying concealed in their home state, to carry concealed in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.

Representative Marlin Stutzman, a Republican from Indiana, introduced House Bill 923.  The legislation is very similar to the intent of Senate Bill 498, explained above. It would also allow people with concealed carry permits from their home state, or who are not prohibited from carrying concealed in their home state, to carry concealed in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry

Representative Richard Hudson, a Republican from North Carolina, introduced House Bill 986.  This bill would allow any person with a valid carry permit or license issued by a state to carry a concealed firearm in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.

Representative Rich Nugent, a Republican from Florida, introduced House Bill 402. This bill would allow any person with a valid carry permit or license issued by a state to carry a concealed firearm in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.

If you live in any of these states, get in touch with your representatives to let them know you support these bills. If you live in other states, get in touch with your representatives to let them know you want them to support the passage of these bills and to introduce similar legislation in your own states.
