    I of course do and always have. I have stated this many times here over the years.
    Ayway there have been movements for this and bills etc and now they are trying again.

    John Cornyn: My bill treats gun carry permits like driver's licenses

    NRA Backs Senate's 2015 Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act - Katie Pavlich

    Please save any opinions on outlawing guns etc I'm just looking for views on this one aspect.

    These types of laws violate the constitution IMO and many have ruined peoples lives or come damn close. One story that comes to mine was a PA resident (a mother of two who had been robbed a couple times) that went to NJ for a kids birthday party. She was pulled over for a lane change violation and stated she had a gun in her purse and her carry permit. Being that NJ doesnt have reciprocity laws that recognize PA's carry permit she faced felony charges and 10 years in prison! Thats crap any way you slice it.

    This is something that needs fixed now. Its a shame that fighting against gun laws that violate rights isnt as easy as fighting against other unconstitutional laws because many of the gun laws make you a felon.

    Once something becomes "licensed", it becomes a privilege. It also becomes a way to leverage more money from people for other programs.

    I don't think a permit should be required at all.

    Take a vacation. Either research gun laws in the state(s) you're going to traverse, or you risk getting a felony on your record. And, frankly, with the climate surrounding our LEOs (jumpy, being threatened, feeling persecuted), one even risks getting shot for speeding. Until SCOTUS' recent ruling, different cities in Illinois had different laws. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Should be reciprocity. If you're legal in one state, you ought to be legal in all.

    well if you read the OP ita other is about the bill, other would refere to something else with licenses/permits existing not erasing them even though Id be fine with that.
    Maybe I should have boleded that part or made it more clear.

    Is there a bill out there right now that wants to remove permits.license nation wide?
    Id support that if there was

    That would probably need to be done on a state by state basis.

    My contention is that if the FedGov has to issue a license to carry concealed then the right to keep and bear arms has already been infringed. If I was going to vote for any kind of fed permit it would have to allow universal carry. I'm talking planes, schools, the White House, you name it.
