How will you be affected if Congress mandates concealed carry reciprocity nationwide? Chances are, your state’s gun laws will be seriously undercut and there is nothing local law enforcement could do to stop it. People who would never be allowed to carry a concealed, loaded gun in public under your state’s laws will be free to do so in your neighborhood—all they would need is a permit from a state with lax laws or to be a resident of one of the 12 states that don’t require permits at all. That means teenagers, domestic abusers, stalkers, violent criminals, and more from states with weak gun laws could carry concealed in your state too.
