National Right To Carry Act of 2011

A bill supporting national reciprociity of CCW permits has been entered in the House of Representatives and approved for voting. Support this bill!

Full article: http://thehill.com/homenews/house/18...-gop-defection

Quote:
GOP leadership sources told The Hill that the bipartisan measure, with 245 co-sponsors, will likely come up for a vote on the floor before year’s end.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) said the bill would make it easier for individuals with permits to cross state lines with their concealed weapons.

“The bill allows law-abiding gun owners with valid state-issued concealed-firearms permits or licenses to carry a concealed firearm in any other state that also allows concealed carry. This legislation does not pre-empt a state's ability to set concealed-carry requirements for its own residents,” Smith said at the markup.

Lungren, a former attorney general of California, opposed the bill, contending it infringes on states’ rights.

Lungren wants the measure to set a minimum national standard for conceal-and-carry permit holders.

He is also concerned that residents of states with strict conceal-and-carry requirements would go to other states with less stringent requirements to obtain a permit.

“I wanted to offer an amendment that the person be a resident of the state in order for the reciprocity imposed by federal law — in other words, a resident of the state that granted the permit,” Lungren said, noting that his concerns were not adequately addressed in committee.

Coincidentaly, there was also a CNN article posted just this week asking: "Why is support for gun control is at record lows?"

Read the comments.

I live in FL so we pretty much have this

I say its a states issue and leave it that way.

I dont want other states to have a way to muck up the system here.

The petition website isn't working for me. Everything loads but (what I assume is) the petition itself.

Since I have a CCW permit with Alabama, I'm good in... 22 other states?

It's pissing me off that I can't sign this for some unknown reason. I have the account and all and the "Sign this Petition" button is whited out. Conspiracy.
