    Austin Now known as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, the bill, which The Daily Caller obtained exclusively, would allow a person with a concealed carry license from one state to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that permits its resident to concealed carry, as long as the person is not banned from possessing or transporting a firearm under federal law. The bill excludes carrying “a machine gun or destructive device,” and the person must follow “the restrictions of that state.”

    Not a new attempt, but this time the veto threat seems to have been removed (we hope). Question is can Congress get it passed to present to POTUS?

    After January, there is no reason not to other than incompetence.

    I understand why we would want to do this, but places like NY, NJ and California have so many restrictions on licensed carry already that isn't it almost a moot point that your Texas LTC would be honored there? Maybe if the law defined some common requirements that every state had to follow it would be of use, but then you're letting the Feds write even more state firearms law, and I don't want to go any further down that road than we already have.

    Very mixed feelings on this one. This is one area where I'd probably rather take a page out of the left's playbook and shop it to friendly judges until the non-free states' restrictions get knocked down on constitutionality.

    Other than NYC NY has carry but even still many outside NYC are restricted from carrying in a very odd way. It would take far too much time to type from my phone but here is the short version. In NY you cannot posses a handgun without a license, period, to do so is a felony. Since NY is a may-issue state they can revoke your license at any time for any reason. When you are issued your "carry" license in many counties the police department rubber stamps it with a "to and from range" restriction. If you get caught carrying outside of that you can't be charged with a crime, but they can and do revoke your license. It's generally 6-12 months. Now since you can't posses handguns without that license all you handguns need to be surrenders or transferred to another license holder. Everything is registered and there is no way around it. Now if you live in a county that doesn't rubber stamp your license you can carry everywhere in NY except NYC, you can even carry in counties that rubber stamp their residents license. If reciprocity passes your Texas license would need to be treated as a non-rubber stamped license. There is no 51% restriction in NY and signs don't carry the weight of law.

    Not crazy about the Feds passing any laws regulating weapons or carry. Period. It's not their job.

    They need to repeal all Federal guns laws.

    Wouldn't they need to establish a national data base of all licensed CC permits? How would LEO in another state know if your LTC was valid.
