      Senator Vitter To Offer Concealed Carry Reciprocity Amendment
      -- Action needed right away!

      Senator David Vitter (R-LA) has filed a pro-gun amendment to HR 980, and it
      could be voted on as early as tomorrow!

      This amendment would protect the right of citizens to carry concealed
      weapons (outside of their home state) in states that allow concealed carry.

      Sen. Vitter explains that his amendment does not violate the rights of
      states as it "does NOT establish national standards for concealed
      carry, nor
      does it provide for a national carry permit."

      In other words, the Vitter amendment specifically says that state laws
      concerning specific types of locations in which firearms may not be carried
      shall be followed. "My amendment will not federalize concealed carry
      permits but simply requires concealed carry permits to be recognized in
      other states that allow concealed carry permits," Vitter said.

      This is a real reciprocity provision which grants citizens the
      "full faith
      and credit" protection that is guaranteed in Article IV of the
      Constitution.
      Section 1 of this article says:

      Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts,
      Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress
      may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records, and
      Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.

      Vitter says that this constitutional provision authorizes the Congress to
      pass legislation forcing each state to recognize the "public
      Acts" of other
      states. So if states are not willing to recognize another state's laws,
      Congress has the authority to pass laws to require recognition of those
      measures.

      It's just like with driver's licenses. If certain states refused to honor
      the driver's licenses of citizens in other states, Congress could pass
      legislation (under Article IV) to require every state to honor all licenses.

      ACTION: Please urge your Senators to vote for the Vitter amendment to HR
      980 to protect the right to carry concealed firearms outside of your home
      state.

      You can visit the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at
      http://www.gunowner s.org/activism. htm to send your Senators the pre-written
      e-mail message below. And, you can call your Senators at 202-224-3121 or
      toll-free at 1-877-762-8762.

      ----- Pre-written letter -----

      Dear Senator:

      Please support the Vitter amendment to HR 980. This amendment will protect
      the right of citizens to carry firearms outside of their home state without
      violating the rights of other states. Thus, the Vitter language masterfully
      protects the principle of federalism while also promoting Second Amendment
      rights.

      A person's right to defend himself and his family should not end at the
      border of his state.

      I urge you to vote for the Vitter concealed carry amendment.

      Sincerely,

      ************ ********* *******
