Republican Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., today will introduce new Second Amendment reforms that would allow state-issued concealed carry permits to be recognized in other states that allow concealed carry.
The bill, the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, is backed by more than 40 of their Senate colleagues, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Senate Minority Whip John Thune, R-S.D.
“I’m proud to support law-abiding gun owners across America with this commonsense legislation that would let them concealed carry in all states that allow it,” said Cornyn, who sits on the Senate judiciary, finance and intelligence committees.
The measure treats state-issued concealed carry permits like drivers’ licenses, as people can use their home-state license to drive in another state but must abide by that other state’s speed limit or road laws.
This is the the way it should be, and now that Bruen has made all of America shall issue, there is no reason not to have 50 state CCW reciprocity.
But Biden won’t sign it and the Republicans don’t have a veto proof majority.
But maybe if the Republicans win the presidentcy in 2024, there is hope for this to be passed into law.
Especially under President DeSantis if Florida goes Constitutional Carry.
