arma virumque cano (et alia)
MikeB,The video suffers from a lack of knowledge and explanation.It makes it sounds as if all of a sudden states will be forced to recognize other state permits. That isn't the case. All the amendment did was standardize the reciprocity and make each state recognize another state permit....much like a driver's license.For Example, Texas already recognizes the following state permits under reciprocityReciprocal States Alabama Alaska Arizona Arkansas ColoradoDelaware Florida Georgia Idaho Indiana KansasKentucky Louisiana Michigan MississippiMissouriMontana New MexicoNorth Carolina North DakotaOklahomaPennsylvaniaSouth Carolina South Dakota Tennessee Utah Wyoming And these states even if they don't recognize Texas Permits * California * Connecticut * Hawaii * Iowa * Maryland * Massachusetts * Nebraska * Nevada * New Jersey * New York * Rhode Island * Washington That is 27 states with reciprocity and 13 unilateral.....40 states with carrying privileges in Texas our of 48 states that allow concealed carry. Hardly a sweeping change is it?Earlier you made a statement about Mississippi not having training requirements and Texas would be "forced to accept" those with permits. Check the list above!!Mississippi and Texas have had reciprocity agreements since Sept 2004. Hardly a problem for Texas. Can you show any evidence that the lack of training by Mississippi residents has been a problem in Texas?If states have to recognize business contracts, marriage licenses, driver's licenses, etc ' why not concealed handgun licenses?
MikeB,No answer to why not CHL permits if we recognize the rest?
