Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) has introduced new legislation that will allow those who live in states with Constitutional Carry to cross state lines with concealed firearms.
As reported in The Daily Caller:
The legislation, first obtained by the Daily Caller, is titled the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. The bill would ensure a Montana resident can legally conceal carry a gun into a state where the state’s own residents can conceal carry. This bill also allows for individuals with a state-issued concealed carry license to conceal a gun in any other state, as long as the permit holder follows the laws of that state.
Daines’ Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act also would allow those who live in a constitutional carry state to carry in other states.
“The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed under our Constitution — no state should be able to take that right away. My bill would ensure that every state honors Montanans’ right to self defense and the Second Amendment through concealed carry reciprocity,” Daines told the Daily Caller before introducing the legislation.
Daines believes that similar to how a driver’s license works across state lines, a concealed carry permit should as well.
This is excellent news for those living in states that have passed Constitutional Carry. This is also great news for those that have concealed carry permits. Sadly, this legislation isn’t going anywhere soon with Democrats in control of the House and Senate.
