    I wouldn't support this at all. I happen to live in a very pro gun state and we would lose something if we had to negotiate with the likes of Kalifornia, Illinois, NY, Connecticut and a few other socialist republics.

Meanwhile, the people from Vermont will be asking, "Permit? Permit for what? Are you serious?!?"

    NO THANK YOU.
    I agree completely. I'm in NC. We would suffer as well.

  4. Which is why I suggested national reciprocity over a national permit. States can set their own standards on obtaining a drivers license, and they are accepted in all 50 states as long as you follow local laws.

    Ditto, be careful what you ask for. You may get it.
    Mi. accepts all carry permits. Mi. has reciprocity with most states. I'm satisfied with that.
    If I can't carry in NY or whatever, that's their loss. I just won't go there.

    Just like Remington won't be manufacturing in Ilion, NY anymore either, or Kahr... and Ruger is going away from Ct. Let those states shrivel economically. Let those residents leave. Let the peoples' voices be heard.

    There is an interesting new study out which you may have already seen. It's very timely because here we are with all the California proposals about to get signed or vetoed by the Governor, here in a State where concealed carry is very irregular (it's shall issue in some areas, may issue in others, each county has its own standards, very fragmented, and there's no real reciprocity -- so your carry permit in one county only works in that county, it doesn't work across California). This is but one of the messed up things about California. But getting back to the point:
    There has been this study, which I recently wrote the Governor about in a message to him that I titled "Gun Studies" in which I mentioned a few different gun studies. Specifically, this study which I am thinking of just appeared in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, titled 'Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?' And of course, upon review, it was found that it wouldn't at all. You can link to it here:
    http://www.law.harvard.edu/students/...useronline.pdf
    But the study discovered something else, too:
    "As to one specific control, the ban on carrying concealed weapons for protection, “violent‐crime rates were highest in states [that flatly ban carrying concealed weapons], next highest in those that allowed local authorities discretion [to deny] permits, and lowest in states with nondiscretionary” concealed weapons laws under which police are legally required to license every qualified applicant."
    I used this study to suggest to the Governor that he recommend or issue a Governor's executive order that Sheriffs and Police Chiefs across California adopt Shall-Issue as a standard so that people would be able to carry concealed anywhere in the State.
    (However, I am thinking of moving to Nevada, and I'm not holding my breath.)

  9. It would make a lot of sense, but realistically it's just not gonna happen. Timtheref is correct, national reciprocity would be a positive first step in the right direction

    Don't hand your rights over to the Federal government for just a bit of convenience. It would not be a step in the right direction to have a Federally enforced reciprocity. If the states could all agree on it, that's one thing... but I can't see a National reciprocity happening without the Federal government mandating it, and at that point, they'll make all the rules on how we are to carry. That would be the end of the 2nd Amendment.

    To put this idea of National Concealed Carry Reciprocity into perspective please consider this:

    Asking the Federal government for National Concealed Carry Reciprocity is the same as asking...

    "Mr. Obama... can I have your permission to carry a gun?"

    What do you think the answer will be?
