Action Alert for Gun Owners

I just received this from my daughter. I will be sending out some emails asap. This is a great amendment. I don't carry-yet but it is a real hassle having to look up each state you will be traveling through to see if there is reciprocity. My PA carry permit works in Idaho but an Idaho permit will not work here? Go figure.

 

Vitter Amendment Creates Concealed Carry Reciprocity

Contact Your Senators Right Away!

Senator David Vitter (R-LA) has introduced an amendment to HR 980 requiring states with concealed carry laws to honor the concealed carry permits from other states. The amendment could be voted on as early as Wednesday, May 14! Your immediate action is needed.

Authority for such a law is found in Article IV of the Constitution, the so-called 'full faith and credit provision.' Under this provision Congress can pass legislation forcing the states to recognize the 'public Acts' of other states.

The amendment does nothing other than protect the right of citizens who are permitted to carry concealed weapons in their home state while in any other state that allows concealed carry. It would neither establish national standards for concealed carry, nor create a national carry permit. All state laws concerning concealed firearms will remain intact.

Please contact your Senators and ask them to vote FOR the Vitter amendment to HR 980. Senators can be called at 202-224-3121 or toll-free at 1-877-762-8762. You can email through their websites which can be found at senate.gov.

Red Queen's Mission Statement

I believe that things can always be cured with a hug and a cup of tea, fixed with either a needle and thread, duct tape, WD40 or coke, and that prayer works every time. I take in strays whether in animal or childlike form. I have been mother to many for a time and this is my way of keeping up with some of those straying children that I miss. I appreciate shock value and use it often to remind people that the world is round and colorful and we are not all living in square brown cardboard boxes with little holes cut in for windows. Look for the warm fuzzies- God delivers them up fresh every day just to say- I think you are pretty darned special- so special that I have your picture up on my fridge for life and I am sending you a hug to remind you that you matter to me.
