    A. Long hard battle for no good outcome!
    B. We have a chance!
    C. Better luck next year!
    Regardless of the outcome, it's good to keep pushing it. Eventually maybe we'll have reps in both houses who will pass it and a Pres who will sign it into law! BUT, I'm with you... cross your fingers!

    It's kinda hard to choose between A and C ... though I am more hoping with B. If many will start supporting one another maybe we can have a B. It is a nice dream though...

  4. I just looked over the official summary and IF it passes without any of the normal amendments and such foolishness, then it's the exact thing I want the federal government to do and it is the maximum extent of Federal involvement in the Concealed Carry issue I would like to see.

    The bill forces the states to recognize each others permits. That is part of what the Federal government was designed to do- arbitrate between the states and make them get along. Your marriage license is recognized in all 50 states- even if the age of consent and exact requirements like blood work are not the same. I don't see why my concealed carry permit shouldn't be recognized in every state that has a similar law on the books.

    We don't need more Federal involvement in concealed carry. A National (read Federal government controlled) concealed carry permit is not the way to go. The states have a certain degree of independence BUT they still have to get along and recognize the decisions of other states.

    No it would not. You could use your FL permit to carry in every other state except IL and your home state. To carry in your home state you must have a home state permit.

    No, it would do away with the need for nonresident permits to exist. If you have a permit for your home state, it would be good in ANY state that has a concealed carry permit law as long as you are following the law of the state you are in. If I went to NJ with my AL permit, under this law I would be legally able to carry as long as I follow the NJ laws.

In Cal-LEFT-fornia, moving from one county to another is like changing nationality!

    Now, I am a staunch supporter of both the 2A and the 10A, but in this case I believe the states need to be corrected. Bring it back ok line with the constitution across the board. Is it a pipe dream? Maybe. But HR 218 did go through, granting peace officers reciprocity in all 50 states. Why shouldn't properly permitted civilians be extended the same courtesy?

    So maybe there is hope, but I guard my hope well out of fear that this may be a staging ground for more oppressive blanket legislation from the federal level. Go ahead, call me a conspiracy theorist. You won't be the first, or the last. :-)
    What's the skinny on HR218? I have not really heard much about that?

    I guess thats bad news for me because I would rely on a non resident permit. I am in the process of getting a Florida non res. because I cannot get a CCW in NJ its impossible here so, I rely on non res permits to carry in other states like PA for instance.

    It's called the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004. Part of Homeland Defense. It is very succinct. Basically it grants any peace officer with off duty carry privileges the right to carry in all 50 states. I said reciprocity above, but that's not exactly true. It goes farther than that by granting LEOs exemption from state laws prohibiting the carrying of concealed firearms. There are certain requirements, but very reasonable. Check it out. If you are LEO or retired LEO, you may have more carry rights than you knew.

    You could still use a FL permit to carry in PA...just not in NJ.

    It's possible that a result of this is that states AZ, FL, UT, etc might decide they no longer have to issue to non-residents...but I doubt they would want to give up that revenue source.

    There's no way those gun-friendly states would do away with CC, but other not-so-friendly states like NJ or Hawaii might very well do so. They hardly issue any permits in the first place so they don't have much to lose. I find it hard to believe that the "anti" states would simply do a 180 and allow people to CC just because of this law.
