This bill (S.1522), introduced by Sen. Cornyn (R-TX), amends the federal criminal code to allow a qualified individual to carry a concealed handgun into or possess a concealed handgun in another state that allows individuals to carry concealed firearms. Essentially, this bill would make an individual's concealed carry license more like a drivers license, valid in all 50 states so long as that individual is abiding by state and local laws. 

FPC supports strong reciprocity bills that ensure protection of gun owners in restrictive states, localities, and territories. Currently, gun owners face a confusing patchwork of concealed carry reciprocity, often determined by overtly political state officials who can sometimes change the rules on a whim. This makes even informed and educated gun owners accidentally violate concealed carry reciprocity rules. Unlike other fundamental Constitutional rights, the right to keep and bear arms is often allowed to be infringed aggressively by state and local authorities.
