A measure known as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, would require states to recognize concealed gun carry permits from other states.

Hypocrisy and politics have always been willing dance partners, and this bill tramples the principle of states' rights that the Republican Party likes to trot out out when it suits its own ends; only six Democrats voted for the bill.
U.S. Rep. John Faso, R-19, helped pass legislation that would allow people with concealed carry permits to bring those weapons into other states that allow concealed carry.
He said more than half the states recognize permits from every other state, and states and municipalities could still restrict where guns are carried in their communities.
