By way of SaysUncle comes information on H.R. 4547, a bill creating national concealed-carry reciprocity. This is the right way to do national concealed carry. Just like the states are required to recognize a driver's license issued in another state, they should be required to recognize a concealed-carry license issued by another state. Unlike a federal licensing system, this is Constitutional, and it allows each state to set its own criteria. My only gripe would be the fact that it would probably require an official act to kick in -- that is, Alaska and Vermont residents would need to get a permit in order to get the benefits of reciprocity. Neither state currently requires a permit to carry a concealed firearm.
