    Federal Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill Introduced in Senate, Gun Rights Organizations Offer Support

    Texas Senator John Cornyn is introducing a bill in the US Senate that would allow for national concealed carry reciprocity. Cornyn's bill takes a fairly 'soft shoe' approach on the issue of reciprocity. It does not establish any federal guidelines or a permitting system. It does not change the carry laws that are in place in various states. It does not change what types of firearms are legal/illegal at the state level. Think... Read More »
