While I support national recognition of our concealed carry rights, the above statement is inaccurate.
While it is illegal to carry across SOME State lines with only a permit from your home state, many states have cooperated with eachother and ratified reciprocity agreements between and amongst themselves. And at least one State, Indiana, recognizes concealed carry permits from ALL other States that issue them.
Does anyone remember “congress shall make no law” in the good ole days?
I’ll take my chances with being tried by 12 than carried by 6.
“Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof.”
Seems pretty clear to me. But then, so does “...shall not be infringed...”
“Gun owners allowed to carry a concealed weapons in their home states can’t legally carry them across state lines “
You just have to do your homework to know which states have reciprocal agreements!
Less than 5 minutes of research will inform you on which states have reciprocity agreements with yours...
Just yesterday, my wife and I were discussing where to go on our fall vacation. I checked the list of states with reciprocity with South Carolina and Louisiana was on the list.
Let's see.... I've always wanted to go there, they will let me carry my weapon, AND they had the good sense to elect Bobby Jindal...
Yep, I KNOW where we are going to spend our vacation money.
I have permits from my home state and Utah and am legal in, I think, 35 states mostly due to reciprocity with the Utah permit.
