Official Title

To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a national standard in accordance with which nonresidents of a State may carry concealed firearms in the State.

Summary

National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013 - Amends the federal criminal code to authorize a person who is carrying a valid, government-issued identification document containing that person's photograph and a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm in one state, and who is not prohibited from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm under federal law, to possess or carry a concealed handgun (other than a machine gun or destructive device) in another state in accordance with the restrictions of that state.
    I live in Alaska, and I would be a felon if I visited family in NY and NJ

    I have a valid handgun permit for my current state, Indiana, but when I go and visit family in Maryland it doesn’t carry over. Just by crossing a state line, I would go from being completely legal to committing a felony and risking 5 years in prison.

    Or simply acknowledge that the second amendment already allows more

    Any other licensing issued by one state is recognized by other states, except this one. That is a gross abuse of our civil rights.

    This bill forces concealed carry into areas that do not want concealed carry. What happened to the conservatives who favor Federalism and local control?

    NJ has draconic gun control laws that punish law abiding citizens with felonies should they have to take a pee break on the way to the range. NJ’s hurdles to get a gun are actually ok with me but the transport and carry laws are ridiculous and push this moderate to the right (just so the law can land in the middle)

    The NRA must be ecstatic with this flat out LOONY bill actually getting consideration.

    I’ve voiced my opinion on this previously but it’s worth voicing it again. I live in Mississippi, a free state, where I can and do legally carry a concealed firearm just about everywhere I go, especially if my family is with me. I’m originally from Maryland, a not so free state. When I travel to see family, I have to leave my ability to protect myself and my family at home or risk a felony if caught. That is unacceptable. The constitution is clear on this right. Vote yes on this bill!

    This is the way our forefathers intended things to be. Without the 2A no other amendments are sure to stay!

    Like a drivers license recognizes my ability to drive safely in all states. My right to carry safely and follow the carry laws of each sate should be recognized.

    Vote NO for concealed carry reciprocity. States have enacted gun sense laws for a reason - because their constituents want them! I love living in NJ because of the rules and regulations that foster gun violence protection.

    Only if there is a reasonable national standard. This dumbs down the concealed carry to the lowest common denominator. It ignores a states right to set minimum standards for concealed carry
