Title

Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015

Official Title

To allow reciprocity for the carrying of certain concealed firearms.

Summary

Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015 Amends the federal criminal code to authorize a person who is not prohibited from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm under federal law, who is entitled and not prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm in his or her state of residence or who is carrying a valid state license or permit to carry a concealed weapon, and who is carrying a government-issued photographic identification document, to carry a concealed handgun (which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce, other than a machine gun or destructive device) in any state in accordance with the restrictions of that state. Provides that in a state that allows the issuing authority for licenses or permits to carry concealed firearms to impose restrictions on the carrying of firearms by individual license or permit holders, an individual carrying a concealed handgun under this Act shall be permitted to carry it according to the same terms authorized by an unrestricted license or permit issued by such state.

    Gun owner and concealed carry permit holder here. I'm against this bill because I do not think it's the right time. As with cars, we need more coordination between the States on safety and training, both on the operation of the tools in our care as well as in local laws concerning where one can carry and when one can draw. Let's find another way - such as SCOTUS rulings - to start new conversations in States who have curtailed second ammendment rights through bureaucracy.

    There should not be permits. The 2nd amendment is the permit! Or should we enact a permit system for your 1st amendment rights?

    with all the terror in this country I believe that any responsible lawful individual should be allowed to carry to protect him/herself, family if the need arises.

    Everyone who is a law abiding citizen should have the right to carry a concealed weapon. It would save lives and stop so many terrorist plots from coming into fruition. Vote yay.
