Interstate concealed carry changes coming???
 
I cannot find an article or link, but i heard part of a mention on CNN about some attachment to a bill that would require all but two states to honor each other's concealed carry permits.

Did anybody else see this and get a better understanding of it?

Oops* I just saw the other thread in Legal & Politics.

Nope I have not seen anything on that yet.

I've heard about this. Read something on it the other day and basically it was a law that requires all states to recognize the laws of your home state. I'll use myself as an example.

I live in North Carolina and I have a CCP. Current if I go to Virginia, I have to follow their CC laws. Under the new law, Virginia would have to recognize my NC CCP and I would follow North Carolina CC laws, not Virginia. Make sense?

The 2 states mentioned are Alaska and Vermont, they have no laws concerned CC and no permits are required. I'll try to find the article I read on it. I was VERY happy to read it.

Here are a couple of links I found with a quick google search.

United States Senator - John Thune

I belive he is the senator proposing it.

This has been a problem forever when carrying across state lines. I hope it passes.

It didn't get the required 60 votes today.

spittinfire 07-22-2009 05:24 PM

It was short by 2, much closer then I would have though but still not enough.

Actually the two states are Wisconsin and Illinois - neither of which allow CCW...
