Concealed Carry Reprocity Act of 2017
H.R. 38/S. 446
This bill was introduced into the House in January. Under this bill, a person who is allowed to carry a concealed weapon in one state would also be allowed to carry that weapon in any state which permits concealed carry. The problem is that certain states have much weaker - or no -permitting requirements. For example a bill was recently introduced into the Texas state house which would have removed the requirement of a permit for concealed carry. Thus - under H.R. 38 - any Texan would be allowed to carry a concealed weapon anywhere in the United States without a permit.
A similar bill has been introduced in the Senate (by none other than the senior senator from Texas, John Cornyn).
