Senate Vote on Right-to-Carry State Reciprocity

See here: Senate to vote on concealed weapons measure - Yahoo! News

This sounds great and wonderful but shouldn't the states work this out between themselves? Anyway, write your state senators NOW!

While I am usually against the Federal Government getting involved in most cases, this one is a bit different because they are actually trying to ensure that the states do not infringe on constitutional rights. (The right to keep and bear arms) The Federal Gov is pretty good at involving themselves incorrectly and sometimes illegally in states' rights, but in this case they are within their rights. I bet there are at least a few Dems that are losing their minds over this one.

Oh yeah, and while I like the concept, I can see a potential ulterior motive. One step at a time, first this, then a national carry permit, which in my mind is basically a extensive but incomplete registry of gun owners. Maybe I am being overly paranoid, but I will be curious to see if it goes that direction.

I've been thinking along the same lines. While the nationwide receprosity sounds good, I'm a pretty firm believer in states rights. Next thing you know they will try to make Texans like Libs or Yankees or something.

This would hvae been good if it would have passed. Just said on the radio it failed due to a fillibuster. (58-39) I wonder what happened to the other 3 votes. It should be mandatory that ALL senators be present when a vote is going on.

One of the libs (can't remember which one) said it should be left to states' rights instead of a national bill. Funny how when it's something the dems don't want they claim should be left to state's rights but when it's what they want, it gets crammed down our throats.

Huh, too bad. That is unusual how their theory on states rights works huh? Go figure.

Some states have had reciprocity for years. I'm not sure what this bill was for

Key word...SOME states have had reciprocity. Florida has a large number of states. The bill was so ALL states would have it.

Here is a pretty good tool for determining reciprocity:

Article 4, Section One (The 'Full Faith and Credit' Clause) pretty much deals with such matters already.


A judicial proceeding (which is what a carry permit is in most states) by one state must be honored by all others; just like a marriage license, arrest warrant, etc., etc. A driver's license by one state must also be recognized by the other states.

Yeah, I know.....judges, police and magistrates don't pay attention to that silly document anymore.


** Yeah, I am an extremist. So what? **
