    all 50 states overnight

    I just read in the NY Daily news that under the compomise "It would allow owners licensed to carry weapons in any state to bring their guns alongto all 50 states including those like NY with consealed-weapons ban--as long as they're in town just one night.

    So am I correct if passed I would be able to spend the day in Nj with firearm as long as I am there for one night? If so I understand I would not be able to carry hollow point due to local laws.

    What about DC? Not a state but Federal Enclave ?

    This would be a step in the right direction for people just passing thru. Far from perfect.

    I have to appreciate the placement of Kleenex in the first photo. A nicely staged photo. Perhaps they should include photos of storekeepers who have been shot.
    I have thought that I might want to visit NY for one day, just for the historical sites. DC would be a problem, as i would like to spend a few days in the museums, but if i lodge across stae lines it would be OK>
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    While it's a step in the right direction, I don't like the "nothing to see here, move along" attitude. It sounds like they are saying don't stop and spend money, enjoy the sights, etc in our state. I have a brother in MD, and like Aborigine I would like to visit DC and see the sights, but doubt I could do it all in 24 hrs. Staying in VA might help if they honor my permit or maybe I can just hop across state lines and begin my 24 hrs anew....hmmm.

    How freaky would it be to stroll thru Chi-town? Probably be a police policy to frisk any out of staters.

    Senate reaches deal on weak watered-down gun-control bill without ban on assault weapons, high-capacity magazines - NY Daily News
    The one night thing is a baby step in the right direction, and hopefully would get expanded to true
    reciprocity in any future House Senate conference.

    The question I have on this is what if you are just there for a day trip like going to the mall or a baseball game or something like that? Will it be legal to carry in another state if you are not spending the night?

    I like the concept, as it's a step in the right direction. We ultimately need full reciprocity for any CHP in any state. Every state recognizes all other states' driver's licenses, and driving is a privilege, not a right. What if you leave the state and return the next day? Still of lot of questions to be answered.

    So, if you live in a state that doesn't have reciprocity with Texas and you try to drive across it in one day, you are not likely to make it. It is 856 miles from Orange, TX to El Paso, TX.

    Maybe I am missing something here but if allowed to spend one day how would they know what day I arrived?

    Who would enforce this crappola?

    Maybe this is just a "concealed carry loophole" designed to thumb the noses of no carry states.

    It just puts power in the hands of the police. Or the sheriff.

    "Yes."

    the way I am reading it one license would be good in all state provided that you did not remain in the state past sundown the second day. Who know how the back door deals are done. Dont trust any of them except Rand. Wonder what laws he would sign as president
