Supporters of the Second Amendment breathed a massive sigh of relief
on Wednesday morning when news of a Hillary defeat shifted from
pipe-dream to political certainty. And when the House and Senate were
secured, too, that relief became optimism.
Those who support the Second Amendment have spent years defending gun
rights, and now it seems like they may be able to go on the offensive
to shore them up. And one of the first issues will be national concealed
For those who don’t carry concealed handguns and/or don’t pay attention
to firearms policy, I’ll summarize. Every state in the union has their
own policies governing who can and cannot carry a concealed firearm.
Some require a permit. Some permits requires class-work, while others
don’t. Some states have proficiency tests as part of the permit process,
others allow you to get a permit on-line.

“Peter Ambler, executive director of Americans for Responsible
Solutions, a gun control super PAC, said his organization plans to fight
national reciprocity ‘tooth and nail,’ threatening a Democratic
filibuster of the legislation in the Senate,” the Wall Street Journal
reports. “’It’s a race to the bottom,’ he said. ‘It allows people that
have permits from states with the weakest standards possible to carry
[weapons] in the streets of any U.S. city.’ Connecticut Sen. Richard
Blumenthal, a Democrat and ardent gun-control advocate, said he believes
any version of a national reciprocity bill would be ‘dead on arrival’
in the Senate, due to strong Democratic opposition.”
Well that sucks — if it’s true. And it is true IF
Senate Republicans refuse to use the “nuclear option.” That would be
passing national reciprocity based on a simple majority in the Senate —
an option that Harry Reid and the Democrats first exercised in 2013 in
order to clear a backlog of President Obama’s judicial and other
appointees. Thus setting a precedent.
Apparently, the Democrat Party doesn’t regret that decision now
that Donald Trump is the president-elect. The question is, will
Republican Senators make them regret it? Do they have the balls to ram
national reciprocity (or any of their other priorities) through over the
opposition’s blood-in-the-streets howling indignation?

Congressman Richard Hudson from North Carolina is set to
introduce national concealed carry legislation for the next congress
after Donald Trump is sworn in as president.
The bill, known as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, will
allow a person with a concealed carry permit in one state to carry a
handgun in any other state that permits residents to conceal carry, as
long as the person is not banned from possessing or transporting a
firearm under federal law, The Daily Caller has learned.
You can read the full bill here.
“Our Second Amendment right doesn’t disappear when we cross state lines, and
I plan to introduce legislation in the first days of the 115th Congress
to guarantee that. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 is a
common sense bill to provide law-abiding citizens the right to conceal
carry and travel freely between states without worrying about
conflicting state codes or onerous civil suits,” Rep. Hudson told The Daily Caller.

Note: Hudson’s legislation not only establishes national reciprocity
for concealed permit holders but also national reciprocity for residents
who live in states that require no permit for concealed carry. In the
former situation the concealed carry permit of any state would be valid
in every state and the “identification document” in possession of a
resident of a constitutional carry state would serve as a permit to
carry without a license in other states.
The bill states:
Notwithstanding any provision of the law of any State or
political subdivision thereof (except as provided in subsection (b)) and
subject only to the requirements of this section, a person who is not
prohibited by Federal law from possessing, transporting, shipping, or
receiving a firearm, who is carrying a valid identification document
containing a photograph of the person, and who is carrying a valid
license or permit which is issued pursuant to the law of a State and
which permits the person to carry a concealed firearm or is entitled to
carry a concealed firearm in the State in which the person resides, may
possess or carry a concealed handgun (other than a machinegun or
destructive device) that has been shipped or transported in interstate
or foreign commerce, in any State that— ‘‘(1) has a statute under which
residents of the State may apply for a license or permit to carry a
concealed firearm; or ‘‘(2) does not prohibit the carrying of concealed
firearms by residents of the State for lawful purposes
Representative Hudson was a guest on Breitbart News’ podcast, “Bullets with AWR Hawkins,”
on December 13 and he assured us at that time that he would be
introducing national reciprocity at the first opportunity. He certainly
kept his word.
