National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act (H.R. 822)

<a href="http://dailycaller.com/2011/08/30/your-right-to-self-defense-shouldnt-end-at-state-borders/" target="_blank">This Labor Day weekend, many families will pack up the car for one last road trip to the beach, lake or park before summer ends. Unfortunately, many of them will have to check their right to self-defense at the state border. Thankfully, there is legislation making its way through Congress that would fix this.

The bill is the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act (H.R. 822) and it would allow any person with a valid, state-issued concealed firearm permit to exercise their right to carry a firearm in any other state that affords that right to its own residents.

The bill was introduced by Congressmen Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Heath Shuler (D-NC) and it currently has 242 co-sponsors and the full backing of the National Rifle Association. By any benchmark, H.R. 822 has overwhelming bipartisan support.

It's about time. Hopefully it gets passed.

Great bill. Hope it gets through soon. It's a pain traveling through some states.

It is past due but I wouldn't hold my breath for Obama to sign the bill into law if it passes both the house and senate.

We "solved" the problem here in PA, of a Castle Doctrine Bill that was passed by our Legislature, but vetoed by the previous administration, by goin' with a different administration which signed that concept into law.

There's yer message for the day.

That is what worries me, we need a change of administration in DC, I am not so sure it will happen. Thanks to W. Bush, retired LE offficers have nation wide carry rights but a Democrat President would not have signed that into law, let alone making a law that everyone can do it.

Re: National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act (H.R. 822)

John, I'm all for reciprocity with my LTCF and everyone else's, but I don't get one thing. Why is a retired LE officers life more valuable than a retired plumbers life?

If I can't carry in NY then there's no reason anyone, the governor of NY, an active NY cop, a retired NY cop, ANYONE from NY should be allowed to carry in PA. Until my rights are recognized we shouldn't recognize theirs. ANY of theirs.

You'll never convince me that the life of a retired cop is more valuable than the life of a retired (fill in the blank with honorable profession). I don't get it.

To a Democrat Everyday is April 15th.
