SB 2188 “National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012 is Introduced

National Concealed Carry ReciprocitySenators Joe Manchi (D-West Virginia) and Mark Begich (D-Alaska) introduced SB 2188, which is the companion bill to HR822. HR822 passed the U.S. House last year in November with a vote of 272-154. The bill would allow your concealed weapons permit to have reciprocity with every other state that allows concealed carry. You would still be required to follow the laws of the state that you are in, and not the laws of the state that issued your permit under the bill. This is the same way that current reciprocity laws work today, but it would clear up much of the confusion about where you can and can not carry. See more here.
