Permit holders ‘should not have to forfeit their safety when traveling’
Tiahrt cosponsors bill to make concealed permits valid from coast to coast
Concealed-carry permits issued by states would be recognized from coast to coast – just like drivers licenses – under legislation co-sponsored by U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt.
“The National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Bill recognizes that those who have a valid state-issued concealed firearms permit should not have to forfeit their safety when traveling," Tiahrt said in a release issued Wednesday.
"Not only does this bill protect the rights of concealed firearm permit holders, it also maintains the right of states to issue concealed weapons permits as they desire. As a mobile society, legal firearm permit carriers should be able to travel from state to state and exercise their fundamental right to self defense—this legislation ensures that."
