National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity Bill Introduced


Friday, January 23, 2009


U.S. Representatives Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Rick Boucher (D-Va.), recently introduced H.R. 197-- the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2009"--a bill that would provide national recognition for valid state Right-to-Carry licensees.


The 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 if the permit holder meets certain criteria. In states that issue permits, a state's laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within its borders. In states that do not issue carry permits, a federal standard would apply. The bill would not create a federal licensing system; it would simply require the states to recognize each other's carry permits, just as they recognize drivers' licenses.


Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) is expected to introduce the Senate companion bill in the near future. Rep. Stearns has introduced such legislation since 1995.


You can contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121, and urge him or her to cosponsor and support H.R. 197!

And we think that the Obamassiah would sign this - why?

It's simply an exercise in futility as long as this administration lasts - and given the control of Democrats in Congress, isn't exactly likely to reach his desk in the first place.
