please contact your congress to support this bill...we need all the gun owners and ccw holder to get behind this....there is no reason that we cant defend our lives if we go out of our state that issued our ccw..this would make it so if you have a ccw in your state you could go anywhere in the country with your gun and not be breaking the law...the bad guys dont care about state lines, we shouldnt have to loose our rights when we cross them.. this following paragraph is from the NRA-ILA

The national Right-to-Carry (RTC) reciprocity bill, H.R. 4547, introduced by U.S. Reps. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Rick Boucher (D-Va.), would allow any person with a valid concealed firearm carrying permit or license, issued by a state, to carry a concealed firearm in any other state, as follows: In states that issue concealed firearm permits, a state`s laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within its own borders. In states that do not issue carry permits, a federal "bright-line" standard would permit carrying in places other than police stations; courthouses; public polling places; meetings of state, county, or municipal governing bodies; schools; passenger areas of airports; and certain other locations. H.R. 4547 would also apply to D.C., Puerto Rico and U.S. territories. The bill would not create a federal licensing system; it would require the states to recognize each others` carry permits, just as they recognize drivers` licenses and carry permits held by armored car guards. Rep. Stearns has introduced such legislation since 1995.

thank you and please show your support. billyj

This seems like common sense, but then most pro gun bills do. I'll spread the word.

Oh, and unless there is something here to disagree with or debate you probably won't get much feedback. That doesn't mean we don't care. :wink:

Billy, I did not respond simply because I like to see every pro-gun bill gather support. The truth of the matter is that this Bill will not pass muster at the Supreme Court and, believe me, a large number of state's Attorneys General are just waiting.

The Bill treads too far into what the Court has always held as a State's Rights issue. It will, I am sorry to say, fail. :?
