proposal to require each state to honor concealed weapon permits issued by other Stat
Our beloved Senator Nelson was one of the two votes who keep the recent proposal to require each state to honor concealed weapon permits issued by other States from passing.

What’s your opinion regarding allowing states to make their own decision?
Dear Mr. TNS:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the recent proposal to require each state to honor concealed weapon permits issued by other States.
I support the constitutional right to bear arms. I grew up on a ranch in the Florida countryside and have been a hunter since I was a boy.
As for the legislation on concealed weapon permits, I believe that each State should be free to decide whether to recognize another State’s permit. The Federal government shouldn’t force a State with tougher permit requirements--attendance at a gun safety course, for example--to honor permits from States with less stringent requirements. Those decisions are best left to the States.
You can be sure that I will keep your thoughts in mind whenever firearms issues are considered by the Senate. I appreciate your letter. Your communications helps me serve you better.
Senator Bill Nelson
