Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but according to this section of the Gun-Free School Zone law

It is ok to drive by a school zone with a loaded firearm IF you are licensed to carry by your state.
If you're in another state, does reciprocity count towards this clause???
Not trying to hijack the thread, but I feel like this is important enough for clarity for all members here.
And honestly just curious here... why not inform LEO of carry status when stopped???
Just the possiblility of putting a rookie in a potentially nervous state unnecessarily?

Bam, right there people. What the good gov give us, the good gov taketh away. If they can, then believe me, someday, they will. As it stands, they cannot do squat about what the states want (I'm sure they could do some financial strong-arming though) on this issue, and it needs to stay that way. As tango said, what we should really want is an agreement between all states, not something that is mandated by the government.

Imagine for a moment that we get a national reciprocity or a national SYG law or similar.
Would you really put it past the antis to stage one, ten, or one hundred Trayvon Martin-esque incidents to burn the whole thing to the ground?

- What incentive would states like NY, IL and CA have for recognizing out of state permits? It's not like they're currently the shining stars of the 2nd.

Been saying that forever. The whole system needs major overhaul before anything like 822 could pass.

What is next for gun rights is simple.
We have to fight 24/7 365 days a year for our 2nd amendment rights. The other side will never go away so we have to grow stronger and stronger to preserve our right.

I would rather that they never do than for the federal government to allow nationwide reciprocity...it should never be in their hands. Either way, I would also be inclined to say that the individual person would have much more success changing the legislation of their own state than ever reaching a goal of country wide reciprocity. That's just how I see it though.

Pro 2nd amendment guys will continue to chip away at current laws to enable more freedom while the anti's will use any and every shooting to take away our freedom.
By the way the SC house passed a couple of bills yesterday. One allowing carry in restaurants that serve alcohol but no drinkmy while carrying and another that deals with several issues but would chnage our reciprocity law to be a recognition law. It the second bill passes the senate, SC would recognize all other states' permits.

If Obama is elected for a second term all this conversation will mean nothing. There are dark and nefarious plans being laid right now that have nothing to do with the constitution or law --- any law. Serializing ammo, taxing ammo, taxing guns sales, inspecting and auditing gun manufacturers, law suits, law suits and more law suits. The IRS will be at gun importers withing weeks of the election. Etc, etc, etc. We can not even imagine.

In toyday's WSJ, John Yoo discusses the Supreme Court, in the context of Obamacare, but had a number of other points relevant. John Yoo: What Conservative Legal Revolution? - WSJ.com
He notes that the winner of this November's presidential election may be able to appoint three new Justices. In 2016, Ginsburg will be 83, Scalia and Kennedy will turn 80, and Breyer will be 78.
This election will determine the fate of the supreme court and have the chance to lock into place a conservative court majority or to launch a liberal counterrevolution.
Should President Obama win re-election, he may even appoint a majority of the Supreme Court that conceivably could be in a position to reverse any decision on any of the recent firearms victories.
