From the NRA-ILA :w00t:

Update On National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity Bills


Friday, February 06, 2009

This week, Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) introduced S. 371, the Senate companion bill to H.R. 197 -- the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2009." H.R. 197 was introduced last month by U.S. Representatives Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Rick Boucher (D-Va.), and would provide national recognition for valid state Right-to-Carry licensees.

The bill would allow any person with a valid carry permit or license issued by a state, to carry a concealed firearm in any other state if the permit holder meets certain criteria. In states that issue permits, a state's laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within its borders. In states that do not issue carry permits, a federal standard would apply. The bill would not create a federal licensing system; it would simply require the states to recognize each other's carry permits, just as they recognize drivers' licenses.

Please be sure to contact your U.S. Senators and Representative and ask them to cosponsor and support S. 371 and H.R. 197! You can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121, and your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121

I've contacted all my senators and Representatives.

I hope everyone emails or calls their Senators and Representatives also.

The text of the letter should be something as simple as the following example.



Dear Senator (Senators last name)

I Encourage you to cosponsor and support S. 371 and H.R. 197.

This week, Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) introduced S. 371, the Senate companion bill to H.R. 197
the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2009." H.R. 197 was introduced last month by
U.S. Representatives Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Rick Boucher (D-Va.), and would provide
national recognition for valid state Right-to-Carry licensees.

Sincerely,

(your name)
(your city and state)

I'm sure it has to do with wording along with adhering to state level reg's and city/town ordinances But when I have more time later I will definately look further into it and if I find anything i'll let ya know.

I feel the same way. The NRA has experts going over these bills in full detail, I have faith and confidence in their actions.
