Texas Senator John Cornyn introduced an amendment to ensure concealed carry reciprocity in states with similar gun laws.

The amendment was introduced to S. 2363, the Sportsmen’s Act of 2014. This measure would treat state-issued concealed carry permits like drivers’ licenses by allowing citizens with concealed carry permits to carry concealed in other states that also permit it by law.

According to Star Local Media, Cornyn said

This bill strengthens two of our nation’s most fundamental rights, ensuring law-abiding gun owners can lawfully carry their weapons into like-minded states, while respecting the rights of states to adopt laws that are best-suited for the people of that state. This is an important affirmation of the Second Amendment and one that has been a top priority of law-abiding gun owners in Texas for some time. It is time to get this done.
