Today, the House of Representatives passed a bill loosening gun restrictions and allowing those with permits to carry concealed weapons to legally travel with those firearms to other states. Good move?

I support interstate consistency, but the restrictiveness went in the complete wrong direction.

Constitutional Carry nationwide and no state can say shit about it. Make it a federal ruling that overrides every state’s wishes. No permit fees, no carry permit needed. Take whatever firearms you want from any state to any state.

If it’s “Constitutional” why do we a new law?

We shouldn’t need one but somehow that phrase in the second amendment got ignored some time ago

I’m not up on this. I have to wonder how this can work without removing control of licensing from the states.

There are plenty of people wanting to move, but stuck living in one state because their professional licenses aren’t valid in other states.

They're free to move to AZ. We have no licensing requirements, no permits necessary to open carry or conceal carry...

I’m just grumpy because I had to move from state to state several times and my optometry license didn't transfer, so I had to keep getting new ones. One national license would have been so much easier for me.

I agree. I'm rather curious now as to why that isn't standard....

The bill says that a person who is eligible(has license/const. carry) to carry in their state of residence can carry in other states that have some for of carry.

It doesn’t change state laws or require new licensing systems and all the state laws still apply

The same system could be applied for professional licenses say if you lived near to the border and wanted to work across state lines. As you said you had to get a new license when you moved, this is the same with the reciprocity bill

Next, why don’t we make it so that drivers can drive peaks speed limits from their home state in a state their visiting?

That would be a great analogy if that’s what the bill said

You would know if you had gotten informed before making a comment

Sorry, SoH placed my comment here instead of at the to of the list. It’s getting glitchier every day.

Doesn’t have to get through the Senate?

I believe so.

I’m guessing the Democrats will filibuster, it has no chance.

I misread your comment. It does have to go through both the Senate and House of Representatives. The bill doesn't need to be exactly the same however, only similar.

The nra also sponsored the other half of the bill which strengthens background checks
