    I really do hope this passes. I would consider visiting some family in some unfriendly states if it was enacted.

    I will get an out of state permit so that I can carry in this state.

  • That would be nice. Finally went and applied for mine yesterday, had to wait for stupid reasons.

    So hopefully just in time.



  • I have mixed feelings about this one. The thing is...if it is a national law then the feds will decide how it is defined. I just don't want our lax tennessee laws being transformed into something like illinois or DC just because some federal judge wanted to redefine the law.

    On a positive note...Tennessee just lowered the cost of a lifetime permit from $500 to $200. I will be going to upgrade mine sometime soon.



  • @dddoo7 good point.

    But if it's just forcing the states to recognize licenses.

    Are DL controlled by the Feds or the state? I'm thinking state, but they're recognized across all 50.



  • @dddoo7 $200 lifetime! Damn and I thought AZ was easy.

    People ask me all the time why I have a CCW in a state that doesn't require one to carry. My answer, to be able to fill out the 4473 and walk out the door is worth $60.



  • I am kind of with ddd007 on this. I understand the purpose of this and see that it can do good for a lot of people. However I very rarely am happy about any legislation that gives the federal government more power to tell the states what to do. Once you give that power to the federal level you generally won't ever get it back. Just a hillbilly's two cents



  • The problem is that neither the Feds or the States have the legal right to give or take this Constitutional Right.
    All gun laws are in violation of the Constitution. Congress cannot pass any law that violates the Constitution and States cannot restrict Constitutional Rights.

    That was then.

    If the Feds pass a reciprocity law it will force states like mine to allow Concealed carry, to me a plus.
    A data base established along with the law will be a very bad thing along the lines of registration.

    99% of the Lawyers make the rest look bad.
