On Friday, a Texas senator introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014 which would treat concealed carry permits similar to drivers’ licenses, allowing permit holders to legally carry a concealed firearm between states without requiring a different permit for each state.
“This bill strengthens two of our nation’s most fundamental rights, ensuring law-abiding gun owners can lawfully carry their weapons into like-minded states, while respecting the rights of states to adopt laws that are best-suited for the people of that state. This is an important affirmation of the Second Amendment and one that has been a top priority of law-abiding gun owners in Texas for some time. It is time to get this done,” Senator John Cornyn, who sponsored the bill, stated in a news release.
San Angelo Police Department Assistant Chief Jeff Fant feels that the bill is a good idea, one that would be convenient for permit holders, especially those living very close to state lines, as well as law enforcement officials.
