Terrorist Threat Demands National CCW Reciprocity

 Terrorist Threat Demands National CCW Reciprocity

Terrorist Threat Demands National CCW Reciprocity, says Gun Law Expert Washington, DC Tuesday, February 23, 2010

"The current terrorist threat demands that Congress enact legislation establishing national recognition for the carrying of concealed firearms," says gun rights expert John M. Snyder.

Noting that government intelligence experts indicate another attempted terrorist attack within the United States in three to six months is "certain," Snyder said, "Americans with state-issued permits to carry concealed firearms in a state should be able to carry them throughout the country. This is necessary for personal and public protection.

"Earlier this month, a Capitol Hill newspaper reported that Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) is prepared to offer a national ccw reciprocity proposal as an amendment to pending legislation. Such an initiative would be in the public interest. Americans who value the right to keep and bear arms and all citizens who value freedom most assuredly would support this move"

A former National Rifle Association editor, Snyder is public affairs director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and treasurer of the Second Amendment Foundation.

Where do I sign, who do I vote for, where do I send the cash, what do we need to do to get this done?

Sounds good to me.

I would love nothing more than on my next business trip to be able to carry my pistol without the fear of going to prison for it.Better to have it and maybe get caught then to need it and not have it.

Not so fast

Keep in mind that if a National CCW exsist, it would be easier to revoke it nationally as well. I would rather keep my state issued and have riciprocity on 32 states.

I agree that national permits are dangerous in that we are then giving more authority to this federalistic monster! I say stick with states for everything and just vote out your reps that are not on the right page and maybe run for office yourself when ossible even at a local level.

Lets see here youve been sitting in the wings for a couple of years... Showing a join date of 2008... and this is your first post..hmmm..

Guessing theres more to this story.. Whatever you bring up an excellent point.. Anything that is issued by the national gov, can sure be taken away by it..

On a related note. I think most members make it a point to have a weapon or two that is not "listed" thru FFL purchase. It's pretty easy to make sure you have at least a couple that don't show up on a list..purchased at gun show w/o FFL, or face to face transactions..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
