Since a change in IL law in 2013, all states allow some form of concealed carry - although some have strict requirements to obtain a permit.

Democrats also criticized Republicans for including a bill on background checks in the concealed-carry legislation.

The House of Representatives approved legislation Wednesday that authorizes gun owners who possess hide and carry permits to travel with their weapons to other jurisdictions that issue such permits. It eliminates the confusing patchwork of state laws that have ensnared otherwise law-abiding gun owners, and have forced law enforcement to waste their precious time and resources enforcing laws that don't do anything to reduce violent crime.

Rep. Graves, House pass Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill

Do you agree with that last statement?

On Dec. 6 Breitbart News reported that Rep. Richard Hudson's (R-NC) national reciprocity legislation passed the House and was headed to the Senate. We wouldn't recommend holding your breathe in hopes of a quick ruling, however. "The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is the culmination of a 30-year movement recognizing the right of all law-abiding Americans to defend themselves, and their loved ones, including when they cross state lines".

The concealed-carry vote didn't fall entirely along partisan lines, with a bit of Democratic support and Republican opposition, but the measure is certainly GOP-driven with President Trump's backing, and represents yet another Trump-era outrage.

But the law makes an exception for people who hold a concealed carry permit from the state in which the school zone is located, according to David Kopel, a policy analyst at the libertarian Cato Institute.

The Justice Department announced this week it is reviewing whether weapons using bump stocks should be considered illegal machine guns under federal law.

So even if the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act becomes law, states would be free to ban the carry of guns in school zones, said Adam Winkler, law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act prevents criminals from abusing the law. "Why should Texans, who have adopted strong, sensible standards for a license to carry be forced to contend with concealed carry gun owners in states that have not", O'Rourke wrote in a Medium post. That's why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too.
