I do not think it is a good thing. I live in one of the few states that do not require a permit to carry a gun, concealed or otherwise. The 2nd Amendment is my permit to carry as it should be in all the states. That is the law which prohibits government regulating our right to keep and bear arms. Simple as that. It would therefore be wrong that I would then be required to have a permit to protect myself. How ridiculous for anyone to think it is fine for the government to give you permission, by way of a permit, to protect yourself. It says nothing of the like in the Constitution. Look at all the stupid laws on the books where in some states you may carry, but will go to prison for shooting someone that is threatening your life or the life of a family member. Look at the state laws that where you are not allowed to protect yourself, your family or your property. This is just wrong and this country needs to go back to its roots and follow the Constitution. If someone chooses not to arm themselves, so be it, that would be their choice, not the government’s decision. By requiring permits for reciprocity, the bill undermines efforts at the state level to pass constitutional carry (i.e., Vermont or Wyoming style carry). It forces Vermont and Wyoming residents (who do not need a permit to carry) to either obtain an out-of-state permit or to push their state to pass a more restrictive concealed carry law than it now enjoys.
