Rep. Hudson gearing up to introduce nationwide concealed-carry legislation
Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.) is preparing to introduce on the House floor nationwide concealed-carry legislation after President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office in January.
Now known as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, the bill, which The Daily Caller obtained exclusively, would allow a person with a concealed carry license from one state to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that permits its resident to concealed carry, as long as the person is not banned from possessing or transporting a firearm under federal law.
The bill excludes carrying “a machine gun or destructive device,” and the person must follow “the restrictions of that state.”
“… The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 is a common sense bill to provide law-abiding citizens the right to conceal carry and travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state codes or onerous civil suits,” Hudson wrote in a statement to The Daily Caller.
