It is just day one of the new Congress, and they are already introducing legislation to roll back many of the abuses of the Obama administration.
One of these is a new gun bill, and Obama is seeing red over it. Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC) introduced national concealed carry reciprocity to Congress, via Breitbart. Hudson’s office published a great summary of this legislation:
“Rep. Hudson’s bill, which is supported by major pro-Second Amendment groups, would allow people with a state-issued concealed carry license or permit to conceal a handgun in any other state that allows concealed carry as long as the permit holder follows the laws of that state.”
The office added, “It also allows residents of constitutional carry states the ability to carry in other states that recognize their own residents’ right to concealed carry.”
Perhaps the greatest thing about Hudson’s legislation is that it also establishes national reciprocity for concealed carry holders in those states that do not require a permit to carry concealed.
In states where a permit is needed, the holder’s concealed carry permit from his or her home state would simply be valid in every state. This is definitely a step in the right direction in upholding our right to bear arms.
Perhaps one of the most refreshing aspects of this new Congress is that they appear to be committed to keeping their word. Representative Hudson appeared on Breitbart’s podcast, “Bullets with AWR Hawkins,” on December 13 and promised he would introduce concealed carry reciprocity as soon as possible. Then he did!
“I personally believe that you shouldn’t have to get a permit from the government to carry a concealed weapon,” Hawkins said on the podcast. “I think that’s a right, an inalienable right.”
He went on to add, “But there are some states that do not agree with that. But there are some states around the country—like Montana, Vermont, and others—that do not require you to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon. And if you happen to live in one of those states, with my legislation you ought to be able to carry in any state that recognizes concealed carry.”
The liberals’ impulse to swoop in and steal our guns has been headed off at the pass. The reason is simple. Conservatives realize that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun, whether a police officer or a private citizen.
Thus, if someone breaks into a Second Amendment supporter’s house, you better believe they will think twice about wreaking havoc in there. I guess the liberals will just have to wait ten minutes for the police to arrive. I sure hope they don’t live in a rural area, or it could be even longer.
