Democrtas Vow Filibuster On National Reciprocity




From CrimeSearch.org — The fig­ure above shows the 32 states that hon­or a Penn­syl­va­nia con­cealed car­ry per­mit (res­i­dent).  Inter­est­ed read­ers can look up where oth­er state per­mits are hon­ored here.

Since the Novem­ber 8th elec­tion, there has been some hope that nation­al reci­procity for con­cealed hand­gun per­mits would be sim­i­lar to that for driver’s licens­es.  If you have a driver’s license in Flori­da, you can dri­ve all the way to Maine or Wash­ing­ton state or dri­ve in Alas­ka or Hawaii.  That is not the case per­mit­ted con­cealed hand­guns.  If you are a truck dri­ver who is car­ry­ing valu­able ship­ments, and you have to trav­el in Cal­i­for­nia, Illi­nois, New York or some oth­er states, you are effec­tive­ly banned from car­ry­ing over your entire trip.  Since you can’t car­ry in New York state, there is no way that you can go from New Eng­land to the rest of the coun­try or vice a ver­sa.

But with only 52 Repub­li­cans in the Sen­ate and 60 votes need­ed to stop a fil­i­buster, Democ­rats are promis­ing to kill any reci­procity bill.  From the Wall Street Jour­nal:

Peter Ambler, exec­u­tive direc­tor of Amer­i­cans for Respon­si­ble Solu­tions, a gun con­trol super PAC, said his orga­ni­za­tion plans to fight nation­al reci­procity “tooth and nail,” threat­en­ing a Demo­c­ra­t­ic fil­i­buster of the leg­is­la­tion in the Sen­ate.

It’s a race to the bot­tom,” he said. “It allows peo­ple that have per­mits from states with the weak­est stan­dards pos­si­ble to car­ry [weapons] in the streets of any U.S. city.”

Con­necti­cut Sen. Richard Blu­men­thal, a Demo­c­rat and ardent gun-con­trol advo­cate, said he believes any ver­sion of a nation­al reci­procity bill would be “dead on arrival” in the Sen­ate, due to strong Demo­c­ra­t­ic oppo­si­tion.…

The argu­ment about the race to the bot­tom is easy to deal with.  Per­mit hold­ers are not only incred­i­bly law-abid­ing, but there is also no evi­dence of more prob­lems with per­mit hold­ers in states that have rel­a­tive­ly lax­er reg­u­la­tions on who can car­ry (see chap­ter 10 of More Guns, Less Crime).
