DC Personal Protection Reciprocity Act

At least ONE congress-critter got it right.
Congressman Massie introduces D.C Personal Protection Reciprocity Act - The Highland County Press:
Congressman Thomas Massie, R-Ky, chairman of the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus, has introduced H.R 2909, the D.C Personal Protection Reciprocity Act. This legislation would allow individuals with a valid concealed carry permit issued from their home state to carry their firearms in the District of Columbia.
This act would not grant "Special Privileges" only to Congressmen; it would allow ANY private individual who has already been vetted in his/her home state to carry in the District of Columbia.
(Earlier motions were an insult to Americans.)
No word yet on whether that extends to carry within The Hallowed Halls of Congress (one would assume NOT!)

And I'm not certain that I would wish it otherwise.

A good bill.

Texas licensees have been carrying in the state capital, including the chambers of the House and Senate, since 1997 without anyone getting shot. Heck, we even let Representatives and Senators carry, and they haven't caused any problems. Well, no carry-related problems anyway.

Larry ... anyone who says "Representatives and Senators .... haven't caused any problems" just ain't paying attention.
