    H.R.923 - Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015
    Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015

    Amends the federal criminal code to authorize a person who is not prohibited from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm under federal law, who is entitled and not prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm in his or her state of residence or who is carrying a valid state license or permit to carry a concealed weapon, and who is carrying a government-issued photographic identification document, to carry a concealed handgun (which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce, other than a machine gun or destructive device) in any state in accordance with the restrictions of that state.

    Provides that in a state that allows the issuing authority for licenses or permits to carry concealed firearms to impose restrictions on the carrying of firearms by individual license or permit holders, an individual carrying a concealed handgun under this Act shall be permitted to carry it according to the same terms authorized by an unrestricted license or permit issued by such state.

    stupid commerce clause even here ... wonder why? I understand that they couldn't create a federal law governing guns at schools without the commerce clause but for this ? And besides that clause remains questionable, because jurisdiction based on commerce is temporary, as in "while in transit". Once the gun hits the shelf of the dealer, federal jurisdiction is gone. Smarter people have reasonably elaborated here : http://scholarship.law.duke.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1097&context=dlj

    Some of us knew that the gay marriage debate was going to lead us down this road; the law of unintended consequences.

    States honor each others state issued driver's licenses and county/state issued marriage licenses, and in some cases hunting and fishing licenses, medical licenses, etc. so why not guns permits?

    Behold your utopia liberals. Bet they didn't bet on that.

    Considering the people involved, why expect consistency or reason?

    "People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist?"
