Conceal Carry Reciprocity and the Constitution: Thoughts from Maharrey Head #118

“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom”


A lot of people are pushing for Congress to mandate conceal carry reciprocity. It may sound like a great idea, but there are some serious constitutional issues.

“The power of prescribing by general laws, the manner in which the public acts, records and judicial proceedings of each State shall be proved, and the effect they shall have in other States, is an evident and valuable improvement on the clause relating to this subject in the articles of Confederation. The meaning of the latter is extremely indeterminate, and can be of little importance under any interpretation which it will bear. The power here established may be rendered a very convenient instrument of justice, and be particularly beneficial on the borders of contiguous States, where the effects liable to justice may be suddenly and secretly translated, in any stage of the process, within a foreign jurisdiction.” – James Madison, Federalist #42
