A bill mandating states honor the concealed carry licenses of other states was proposed in both houses of the federal congress. Our founder, John Rosenthal, wrote a piece for the Huffington Post describing why that threatens states with strong laws, like Massachusetts. He writes:
“Imposing federally mandated reciprocity of state-level concealed carry permit laws essentially resets the national and, by extension, state standards for carrying inherently dangerous firearms, to the lowest and most dangerous possible. It is scary at best and outright irresponsible national public policy at worst for Congress to knowingly enact a new national gun law that has proven to decrease public safety and increase gun violence in Florida.”
