The House Judiciary Committee voted 19-11 late Wednesday for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. This bill would amend the federal criminal code to allow the concealed carry of guns across state lines for all concealed carry permit holders.
Should this bill become a law, states will not be able to impose their individual requirements for a concealed carry license on those who have a license to conceal in a different state. The left is already terrified.
Republicans rejected Democratic amendments that would ban violent offenders from qualifying under the law (because violent offenders cannot obtain a concealed carry permit anyway), as well as a change that would have prevented forum shopping; which means a New York resident barred from obtaining a concealed carry permit could instead send away for one from somewhere else. The bill, which has more than 200 co-sponsors, almost all Republicans, will now head to the floor of the 435-member House. A similar bill, with 38 Republican co-sponsors, is pending before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
All this bill does is extend the right to carry a concealed firearm IF one is licensed to do so in all 50 states, regardless of the state that issued the license. There isn’t really a reason for liberals to freak out, yet they are.
A qualified individual must: (1) be eligible to possess, transport, or receive a firearm under federal law; (2) carry a valid photo identification document; and (3) carry a valid concealed carry permit issued by, or be eligible to carry a concealed firearm in, his or her state of residence. – H.R. 38
“This would end abuses in anti-gun states like New York and New Jersey and allow law-abiding concealed carriers to exercise their rights nationwide with peace of mind,” the NRA website states. “[The bill] would not, as some critics claim, affect how states issue their own concealed carry permits.”
U.S. Representative Richard Hudson, the North Carolina Republican who introduced the legislation, called the bill “welcome progress” in efforts to expand and protect access to firearms.
The few states that target law-abiding concealed carriers from other jurisdictions for criminal prosecution consider the bearing of arms in public for self-defense a privilege reserved for the elite, rather than a constitutional right. When states trample on constitutional rights, Congress has the authority and responsibility to act. –NRA-ILA
This is a small shred of hope for gun owners who seek to exercise their rights regardless of whether or not they cross an arbitrary line.
Black lives matter? Not to MUSLIMS. When will Kapernick be kneeling for THIS issue???
from Story by Nick Givas, 11/29:
A former Nigerian government official has come forward to tell the story of how Libyan slave traders captured African migrants, and cooked them “like kebabs.”
Former minister of culture for Nigeria Femi Fani-Kayode said many migrants from Africa traveled to the Mediterranean to improve their lives but ended up being enslaved instead, International Business Times reported Wednesday.
Three out of four people captured by these gangs hail from southern Nigeria, Fani-Kayode said. Nigeria has the largest Christian population in Africa, according to Pew Research Center.
“75% of those sold into slavery in Libya who have their organs harvested, bodies mutilated and who are roasted like suya [a kebab] are from southern Nigeria,” Fani-Kayode wrote. “Roasted alive! This is what Libyans do to sub-saharan Africans who are looking for a transit point to Europe.”
No word from Colin Kapernick if he will be kneeling for THIS issue, but I think we can guess not!
I’m really sick of that traitor. Seeing his scalp completely ripped off his head would be deeply satisfying.
I am thankful or country has not been disarmed, like most of Europe. We will need to protect our daughters.
Remember this parting “gift” from Obama…
Leftover (SECRET) Obama Refugee Deal With Australia
“In mid-November, just after Donald Trump was elected president, the outgoing Obama administration reached an agreement (which was kept SECRET) with Australia to resettle hundreds of ‘refugees’ to America.”
Thanks to Obama, refugees viewed in Australia as a “possible terrorist threat” are now headed to the U.S.
The Obama administration did NOT inform the public of his plan, nor even consult Congress about it. Obama knew the plan would NOT take effect until AFTER he was out of office.
The federal government pays to support refugees for the FIRST YEAR. After the first year, STATES must assume responsibility to support refugees.
Allah commands that the faithful have MANY children. With limited job skills, many of the Middle Eastern refugee men find it difficult to find high paying jobs that will support their large families. Many of these refugee families remain on government assistance.
According to government records, “most foreign workers compete directly in the construction, service, and manufacturing industries where unemployment is the highest.”
“ALL REFUGEES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR LIFETIME GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE and can draw funds from Social Security and Medicare at Americans’ expense.”
“More than 90 percent of recent Middle Eastern refugees are on food stamps.”
“As soon as they arrive on U.S. soil they are placed on a fast-track to becoming full, voting citizens.”
Report: Middle East Refugees to Begin Arriving to U.S. from Australia – 10/1/17
“The first group of 1,250 mostly male Middle Eastern refugees is expected to soon arrive in the United States from Australia.”
“President Barack Obama (secretly) signed the Australian-U.S. refugee deal during his last months in office — promising to take 1,250 Middle Eastern refugees off Australia’s hands.
The refugees are being held in detention centers on Manus Island and Nauru Island. The so-called ‘refugees’ are actually illegal aliens in Australia who traveled to the country under the previous government which enforced a strict immigration policy that made sure the refugees would never be released from detention.”
“Although some of these countries are included in Trump’s travel ban, the Australian government has confirmed that the refugee deal will be exempt from the travel ban guidelines.”
“Corcoran has said the refugees the U.S. will have to resettle in American neighborhoods have a history of rioting and violence.” (*Look at the pictures of the damage they did to one center where they were staying, $55 million damage.)
After the refugees are resettled in the U.S. in the next fiscal year, the families of those refugees will get priority migration status to either come to America as refugees as well, or come as legal immigrants through the current immigration system which is based on family chain migration.”
“…an Obama-era deal that could bring tens of thousands of the refugees’ family members to the U.S. in years to come.”
we got a middle-yeast infection!
What is with blacks raised by whites hating the people who raised them? Height of hypocrisy? Colin? Obama?
I smile every time i hear Kapernick’s name. I wonder how his unemployement is going?
How long before he is working at Walmart or driving an Uber.
soros will give him a job as his groom of the stool
What does this article have to do with CK? Not a one of you clowns hiding behind your computer talking $hit would ever run up on that man! Stfu!
nobody listens to a DAMN THING a troll says on shtfplan, so why don’t you drink a gallon of turpentine, and piss on a brushfire?…..better yet, take a bath with yer TOASTER!
I’d put a bullet in him
WOW! the NRA will be pissed about losing their gun free zones.
This is all fine and wonderful except for the fact that any law, rule or regulation is invalid according to the 2nd Amendment. Don’t fall for their handgun registry folks.
I had the same series of thoughts. What part of what a ‘right’ is versus what a ‘law’ is does the PTB not understand? All government can do is confirm a right; never, grant one. But hey!!! I’ll take most anything positive right now. And question…. doesn’t California have a process that allows for a permit? Way I read the H.R. – “in any State that has a statute under which residents of the State may apply for a license or permit to carry aconcealed firearm;….” would mean that California would be forced to recognize my or any other valid permit should I be so insane as to go visit that State. My Congressman sent me a link to the full text:
Yes, California does issue concealed carry permits. It’s extremely hard to get one, but they do so all 50 states are covered.
it only takes a YEAR, and many hundreds of dollars….
Los Angeles County is NOT issuing any concealed carry permits to any normal people. (Politically connected people? perhaps)
The only “rights” that are fundamental are God given rights. All other “rights” are given by man and therefore are not rights at all, but rather temporary permissions.
Yep – you got it John. Govt. cannot grant rights. Only, as I said, confirm…. in other words, publicly acknowledge that it is not as great as God.
Baby steps, but I will take it. I am tired of having to lock up my firearm when I travel across state lines. Congress………Don’t let me down.
“Congress………Don’t let me down.”
Hahaha that’s a good one!
Not only that,Menzo,I believe that concealed carry is a states right issue. Feds need to butt out of this
Constitutional amendments are not limited by States rights unless you think slavery is still legal.
If you consider the amount of taxes I pay, then yes, slavery is still legal.
Only worse, today at gunpoint instead of under the whip.
“I believe that concealed carry is a states right issue. Feds need to butt out of this”
The Good Faith And Credit Clause
Article IV, Section 1:
Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.
yea, the NRA needs the gun free zones to protect their income generating propaganda.
As I recall there was a terrible boating accident, even the ammo went under…
GOVERNMENT LICENSING for a law abiding citizen to carry a gun IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!!! Therefore reciprocity is moot!
YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED FOLKS….WAKE UP!!!!!
Really? You should know…
In Idaho we don’t need a concealed permit. SO since I don’t need one does that mean I can tell them in the other states that it’s ok? Read the paragraph 3: or be eligible to carry a concealed firearm in, his or her state of residence. Meaning one does not have to have a concealed permit at all. That you must just be eligible to do so in your home state.
that’s just terminology you’re talking about – your state doesn’t issue paper – just like a few other states – but you have concealed or even open carry rights – that’s what’s important ….
GOVERNMENT LICENSING oc a citizens right to keep and bear arms is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!! Therefore reciprocity is moot!
YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED FOLKS….WAKE UP!!
TELL THESE CRIMINAL BODYGUARD PROTECTED ASSHOLES NO!!!
I’ll take any and all protections preventing me from a court appearance, legal fees, criminal record. One can stand on principal but a felony will ruin your life. Millions more are walking armed because they have the comfort of knowing that they are not violating the law. They indirectly protect me and you. They overwhelmingly already owned guns registered to them. If this bears fruit its a win, no doubt about it.
most felons and persons wrongfully accused of domestic violence need to protect themselves and family too. idiots at the NRA would always disagree. but legislation was put forward for people to get their “privileges” back after a few years of good behavior but the NRA wants everyone locked up for violating the kings rules.
I have a good pile of weapons and ammo and not one did I get permission to buy from the scum that think I need permission. I’m quite serious about killing over this issue.
Menzo, I never asked anyone for permission to get any of the weapons or ammo I’ve ever had. No permission needed for self-defense either. I don’t play the game anyone else’s way.
Tell that to Diane Watkins.
It does not matter WHAT your God given rights are if you get imprisoned or killed because the other state does not agree!
This is a good first step. Personally I don’t think it will get through the Senate. Philosophically I don’t believe in any gun laws as they are unconstitutional, but like unconstitutional taxes we are stuck with them and anyway we can recover some rights is a good thing.
My state allows for concealed carry but virtually NEVER issues a permit.
While we have the most diverse population of any state, we have a low violent crime rate as we have almost zero Moslems or Kneegrows.
So a CCW license is not as big a concern, as it was when I lived in the Seattle area.
We also ignore the stupid laws.
If it does pass and becomes law, I have a plan to legally get a CCW license from another state and I will start to carry again.
Ugh you did not read the law did you. You have to have the concealed permit from the STATE you reside in. You can’t get one from a different state and not reside there and expect to go into all 50 states!
I plan to legally change my state of residence. For example I’ll get a WA state physical address(I’ll rent a room from my brother), register to vote there, get a WA state drivers license, a Washington state hunting license, and a CCW license. I still have a WA state business license and accounts with several WA state businesses. I’ll just spend most my time at my other home in Hawaii.
This is quite legal.
WE already have this–reciprocity among CERTAIN STATES
BUT like yer saying, have to waot and see about the rest/
” but like unconstitutional taxes we are stuck with them and anyway we can recover some rights is a good thing.”
Agree 100%. I’ll take anything I can get.
I agree per the Constitution we should NOT need any stinking permit, etc, but none the less, I think it will be a win for gun rights and individual rights and protections. Boy, states like CA, NJ, NY, CT, MD, HI are not going to be happy, the no good, god damned commie cunts – they clearly HATE the U.S. Constitution. . .
At least you guys have those rights. Up here in Canada, concealed carry permits for private citizens, are only issued by the federal government. To get one, you have to prove a clearly, identifiable threat from a specific individual or organization. The permits have a time limit not exceeding 1 year. The government issues about half a dozen of these permits a year. But, chances are, they will opt to put you in protective custody rather than issue a permit.
the difference being that the US freed itself from English tyranny and Canada was granted her’s …independence has a whole different meaning here than elsewhere in the world ….
always amazes me that people that were invaded and subjugated would ever allow themselves to be disarmed again …
You Canadians are pussies for obeying and submitting to such tyranny and not fighting for your rights. Same with the pussy Brits and Aussies.
All we need now is Constitutional carry nationwide… Then we can celebrate.
Be careful with that CCW . If you have a glas of 12% wine you are considered DUI with the possession of a concealed weapon. And besides you are on the list of danger to society people. I believe the second amendment is your concealed permit . But the traitors don’t?
Shall not be infringed. Is anyone who obeys a blatantly unconstitutional law a traitor? And anyone who enforses it worse?worse then a traitor. Does applying for a CCW make you a traitor? Strange times ? Endtimes?
The right to bear arms is not being infringed by a CCW. You still have the right to have the firearm they just don’t want you to conceal it! So how does that infringe on your right to have it?
I think the fall down is “keep and BEAR arms…”
The need for a CCW License impacts the bearing of the firearm.
This need for a license can be viewed as an infringement on the Right.
The Right Of The People To Keep And Bear Arms…….
Keep (have at home) Bear (have with you).
Numerous states with concealed carry permits does not allow open carry. Take NJ or NY for example.
And your not getting a carry permit there.
This is a bad idea. The federal government is restricted from saying anything about firearms. That is the position we should all take. Don’t give them anymore power than they have already stolen. Let’s take them back. The states are the final authority. NOT the federal government.

1. This bill is redundant. 2. If the general (mistakenly referred to as the federal) government can “grant” authority to carry across state lines then they can also abrogate such authority. 3. Most people, and especially the NRA lawyers really are clueless about the 2A. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6hYECl91hY&t=219s
Hard to believe that a single bill of any sort was passed. Usually it’s an entire Christmas tree full of things.
Kind of off topic but this revolver eats everything (within reason). Easy to feed it.
Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act Constitutional – Is a Trojan Horse..
The bill is a dastardly trick and a Trojan horse for institutionalizing licenses, permits, national ID cards, etc.
And the end game of all those licenses, permits, national ID cards and such is eventual confiscation of all arms.
And after that extermination.
Here is the 2014 edition: https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/senate-bill/1908/text
Also, the federal government has no constitutional authority to make ANY laws dictating who may and who may not carry arms; or under what circumstances people may and may not carry arms across State borders! Arms control of the people is not an enumerated power!
video on arms, here it is: https://vimeo.com/60944105
State concealed carry laws which require a “permit” is an idea crafted in the pits of h ell. The real purpose is to register gun owners! People think it is so cool to have a permit for concealed carry – they don’t understand that it is like the free sample of heroin.
haha free sample of heroin, good analogy. yes the idea of background checks and govt permission is only for slaves who feel good to have the NRA pat them on the head. they can show off their special privileges I.D. card at NRA sponsored events. while illegal rio grand jumpers can step on guns to shoot women and blast a few sea lions while waiting to get deported again.
LOL! Making liberal heads explode since 2017. Thank you President Trump.
