On the very first day of the new 115th Congress, Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC) introduced national concealed carry reciprocity legislation. As a concealed carry license holder himself, this is something that President-elect Donald Trump has repeatedly said he supported.
The idea of being able to carry your firearm from one state to the next if you are licensed or allowed to carry in your home state has been long discussed. Previously, legislation such as this would have had very little possibility of passing, especially with a Democratic White House where it was sure to be vetoed before the ink was dry. But it appears, with the inauguration of the new Republican President-elect looming, that Congress has already started to seriously consider the kinds of things that it could not even dare to think about before.
