WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and 44 of his Senate colleagues introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would allow individuals with concealed carry privileges in their home state to exercise those rights in any other state that allows concealed carry, while still abiding by that state’s laws.
“Law-abiding North Carolinians who choose to exercise their constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights should be able to exercise those rights in other states with concealed carry laws,” said Senator Tillis. “This commonsense legislation protects and promotes the rights of lawful gun owners while respecting state sovereignty, and I am proud to work with my Republican colleagues on this important legislation.”
Background on the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act:
- Allows individuals with concealed carry privileges in their home state to exercise those rights in any other state with concealed carry laws
- Treats state-issued concealed carry permits like drivers’ licenses where an individual can use their home-state license to drive in another state, but must abide by that other state’s speed limit or road laws
- Protects state sovereignty by not establishing a national standard for concealed carry
This legislation is endorsed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the National Rifle Association.
Conceal carry in itself is an infringement. Buying a license to exercise your rights is nothing more than asking government for permission which they can deny.
Truth! Do away with concealed carry! Allow constitutional carry in all states.
Great on a national level, but our NC Senators have also introduced it for NC too: https://www.ncleg.gov/BillLookUp/2023/S40 (also HB50). Our state law is going to have a much better chance at passing.
Repealing the NFA would be a much better effort federally.
If Tillis really cared about the 2A, he would have worked in the NC legislator to introduce a bill to end the requirement to purchase a permit from the sheriff to get a handgun!!! #VoteOutHypocrites
True. Tillis is swampy.
