What the Future Holds for the Right To Carry

Topic Progress:

Laws are changing all the time, whether within a state or at the federal level. Keep watch for alterations, abolishment’s, and new creations in the ways of the law and definitely be well informed if you plan to travel over state lines.

The Second Amendment right to bear arms and be equipped to defend oneself is becoming more recognized as the protection for the law-abiding citizen and not as an encouragement for the growth of crime. Hopefully, we can soon be witness to the shift in society that allows law-abiding and responsible people to properly manage the privilege to own and carry firearms freely across all states.

A bill was brought to congress in March of 2012 to “amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a national standard in accordance with which non-residents of a State may carry concealed firearms in the State.”

Although this bill, labelled the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012, was not enacted, but referred to a committee, it is the beginning of a reform to the jumble of contradictory laws across the country.
