Congressman David Schweikert (R - Ariz.) introduced legislation that, if passed, will require Washington D.C., to recognize and honor concealed carry permits from all 50 states.
The D.C. Personal Protection Reciprocity Act will do three main things:
1) require D.C. to recognize out of state concealed carry permits
2) require D.C. to approve concealed carry applications of recently relocated individuals who lawfully hold concealed carry permits in the states where they moved from
3) require the D.C. chief of Police to enter into reciprocity agreements with all states
The legislation currently has more than 30 co-sponsors and the list is growing. Schweikert says this legislation has been in the works for six months and is not a response to President Obama's executive actions on gun control earlier this week.
