The bills that have been tried to implement "National Reciprocity" reflect that you MUST adhere to the STATE laws currently in effect just like the reciprocity we have now. Your state's strict or loose gun statues do not travel with you. Like your drivers licence. There are no real federal driving laws, you obey the laws of the state you are driving in.For those of us living in very restrictive states and locales... federal/national reciprocity looks/sounds good...certainly better than our current/hopeless situations.
To those of you living under good gun laws... you have much to lose and little to gain.
It just seems to me the 2nd Ammendment should be treated like the rest of the Bill of Rights...and apply to people wherever they live in this great country.
All we want the federal government to say is that each state that has some form of concealed carry must honor another state's permit. Only Illinois and Wisconsin are out of luck.

when you let the feds get a toe in, the bureaucracy will slowly or quickly change things and put restrictions on where, how and when you can do what they allow you to.
stomp on the toe while you can. usually the foot or leg is too large to remove.

There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
Thats where you need to change the laws at the state level, Not the federal level !
