USCCA – Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill to Receive House Vote

West Bend, WI-(Ammoland.com)- The United States House of Representatives is expected to hold a vote on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 this Wednesday. The legislation will make it easier for gun owners to carry concealed weapons across state lines. Tim Schmidt, the Founder & President of the United States Concealed Carry Association, is available for interviews on the topic.

Mr. Schmidt offered the following statement today regarding the announcement:

“The United States Concealed Carry Association applauds the work of Congressman Richard Hudson and all those who have been a part of crafting this legislation, which will make it simpler for Americans to legally carry a gun across state lines,” said Tim Schmidt, Founder and President of the United States Concealed Carry Association. “There are additional steps Congress can and should take to ensure a safer America, and passing national concealed carry reciprocity legislation is a great first step. Law-abiding citizens should have the right to defend themselves and their families at all times from killers who do not respect our laws. We urge lawmakers in the House of Representatives to vote in favor of this important legislation to ensure that concealed carry licenses purchased in one state are respected across the nation.”

BACKGROUND:

The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) has been urging legislators to follow through on their promise to pass national concealed carry reciprocity, which would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be considered valid in the other 49 states. U.S. Senator John Cornyn introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act through S.446 earlier this year and Congressman Richard Hudson did the same through the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 in H.R.446. Both bills would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be respected in them all.

If Tim would stop sending us 10,000 spam emails, we might consider using USCCA, but he never will, so we won’t….;(

This bill is a red herring. It should be a national constitutional carry bill. One may still be arrested if for instance traveling through a state that has a ban on assault weapons that include semi-auto pistols that have a threaded barrel, or a ban on standard capacity magazines holding more than 10 rounds. I doubt this bill would hold water in states like Connecticut, California, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Hawaii, and other Blue states. Once arrested, and convicted, it appears we can’t even count on the Supreme Court to rule in favor of the defendant.

there has been some talk that H.R 4477 is going to be attached to the H.R. 38 bill as a package deal. if so i strongly urge you to seperate these bills or vote no. the H.R 4477 (NICS FIX) bill is unjust and should be debated. please make sure these bill are voted on seperatly, or just vote them both down. it is a loose loose either way. please do not compromise with this. just another low down sneaky attempt by the Demercrats to push there crap on the American people.

This is long overdue. Frankly, it’s disgraceful that law-abiding citizens have been subjected to victimization by, both, law breakers, who commit felonious violence against them; and, by law makers, who have permitted the impeding, or otherwise obstruction, of our constitutional right to protect and defend ourselves. Many thanks to Representative Hudson and to Senator Cornyn for their leadership and courage.

It’s a shame Rep Hudson’s web site doesn’t allow emails from outside his district. This is legislation that affects gun owners from all 50 states and we should be able to have some input in the matter.
