First, there should be no need for permits. Second, the full faith and credit clause should already require states to recognize each other’s carry permits just as it does driver’s licences. That said, as long as this is a state-by-state system, it is wrong for the citizens of the not-few states that don’t recognize anyone else’s permits to be afforded reciprocity. If they are given that courtesy, they will never pressure their own legislatures to drop the discourteous ban on out-of-state permit holders being allowed to carry while traveling there. I say this as a resident of Oregon, a state… Read more »


Even if California were forced into reciprocity, it wouldn’t help without additional changes. Importing ammo into the state is illegal, even that one round lost under a seat. Purchasing ammo requires passing a background check, available only to residents. Thus with reciprocity you could bring your gun and carry it concealed, but would be unable to load it!

That being said, the states should have no power to require a license or permit to exercise a fundamental constitutional right.

On the contrary–how many MILLION $$$ do gunners spend in a year getting permits and the required ‘education’ to get them??

This is one of the BIGGEST CASH COWS states have so one may get their constitutional right.


This is another form of reciprocity without it happening. if every state would do this we will accomplish almost the same thing except states like commiefornia will never allow it.


Your 2nd Amendment is A RIGHT and You shouldn’t have to have a Permit, But If You Choose to Apply/Qualify and Receive a Permit, Your “Concealed Carry Permit” Should be Like Your “Drivers License” Good anywhere You Go.
