There are only ten states that are Constitutional Carry states, which means they do not require you to register in order to buy a firearm. The Second Amendment says the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed,” yet states continue to infringe that right. This must stop, and Rep. Marlin Stugzman (R-IN) and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) have introduced H.R. 923 and S. 498 to do just that.
H.R. 923 and S. 498 are the best reciprocity bills in the Congress. Yes, there are similar bills, but they don’t protect citizens who travel from Constitutional Carry states.
The Stutzman-Cornyn bills do not punish these states for being too pro-gun.
They do not require a gun owner from these states to get a concealed carry permit before carrying a firearm out of state.
Why Reciprocity Legislation is Needed
When Shaneen Allen was arrested in New Jersey for carrying a firearm with a Pennsylvania concealed carry license, the Garden State was flagrantly denying Shaneen’s rights and acting unconstitutionally.
Shaneen faced over a decade in prison — and was only exonerated when gun owners pressured Governor Chris Christie, whose presidential ambitions made him unusually receptive to our message.
So consider this: When you carry concealed in New York, New Jersey, California, or another state, the fact that you are “right” isn’t going to keep you from going to prison for decades — unless the Stutzman-Cornyn legislation is passed into law and forces these lawless states to comply.
This legislation is consistent with the Second and Fourteenth Amendments. The Supreme Court (correctly) ruled in McDonald v. Chicago (2010) that the Constitution protects the right to keep and bear arms from federal AND state abuse.
Liberals are intent in taking your guns away. It is that simple. They are willing to do it incrementally and illegally. To say you can hold a conceal carry permit in one state and be arrested in another for having your weapon is outrageous.
It is nonsensical.
And it is unconstitutional!
Call your congressman or congresswoman and tell them to support H.R. 923 and S. 498. Take the country back, and tell the liberals you will be happy to take their firearms from them so they don’t hurt themselves, but you prefer to keep yours, no matter what state you are visiting. It will make them crazy.
