RTC Reciprocity Bill Introduced In U.S. Congress

posted on January 5, 2017

National Right-to-Carry reciprocity is now officially on the table. Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., introduced the legislation on Tuesday, Congress’ first day in session for 2017. 

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 would enable law-abiding citizens with a concealed-carry permit to travel to any other state that allows concealed carry. It would also allow residents of “permitless” carry states to carry in other states that recognize their own resident’s right to concealed carry. 

“Our Second Amendment right doesn’t disappear when we cross state lines, and this legislation guarantees that,” said Hudson. He called it a “common-sense solution” to a problem too many Americans face, and noted that it would enable gun owners to travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state codes.

Democrats have vowed to fight the legislation, however. Such a bill would be “dead on arrival” in the upper chamber, promised Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.
