    National Right-to-Carry
    Reciprocity Bill Introduced In U.S. House

    Click here to vote in this week's poll.

    Last week, H.R. 822, was introduced in the U.S. House by Representatives Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Heath Schuler (D-N.C.). The measure would allow any person with a valid state-issued concealed carry permit to carry a concealed firearm in any state that issues concealed firearm permits, or that does not prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms. A state's laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within its borders. The bill also applies to Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and U.S. territories.

    H.R. 822 would not create a federal licensing system. Rather, it would require the states to recognize each others' carry permits, just as they recognize drivers' licenses and carry permits held by armored car guards. Rep. Stearns has introduced such legislation since 1995.

    Please be sure to contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121 and urge him or her to cosponsor and support H.R. 822.

    Not that I believe this bill will pass but I think we are covered if it does. Although we do not have a CCW we are allowed to carry concealed with our permit, thus it should be considered a concealed permit for purposes of this bill. Now if our permit mandated open carry only that would be different.

    Good question. I would assume it includes the proper language for any 'permit to carry' but you know what happens when you assume...

    Our permits permit concealed carry, so under this language we should be alright.
