I really wish that concealed carry reciprocity legislation were not necessary. Had the Supreme Court done their job, and interpreted “shall not be infringed” to mean exactly that, instead of the watered down DC v. Heller, which allows states to continue to infringe pretty much to their heart’s content, ALL infringements would have been eliminated, and the world would be as it should be:
Every man, woman, and responsible child has an unalienable individual, civil, Constitutional, and human right to obtain, own, and carry, openly or concealed, any weapon — rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, ANYTHING — any time, any place, without asking anyone’s permission.
— L. Neil Smith
Instead, we’ll have to settle for whatever watered-down legislation the Republicans manage to get through Congress. Better than nothing, I guess.
