Representative Richard Hudson’s (R-NC) concealed carry reciprocity legislation (H.R. 38), would force each state to recognize concealed carry permits from every other state, overriding each state’s core public safety laws on who is too dangerous to carry guns in public or even to possess guns at all. Law enforcement overwhelmingly opposes this legislation, which would put police in danger of being sued for doing their jobs.
Everytown for Gun Safety filed this brief in the U.S. Supreme Court, urging the Court to grant a writ of certiorari to review the Third Circuit’s unworkable opinion in Binderup v. Attorney General. If left intact by the Supreme Court, the opinion by the Third Circuit would impose overwhelming burdens on the background check system, the courts and federal and state prosecutors.
