Rep. Steven LaTourette supports national right-to-carry

The National Rifle Association and the Buckeye Firearms Council both are reporting that Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-Bainbridge Township) voted "yea" on Wed., Nov. 16, to help pass H.R. 822, the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act." 
The bill - which faces an uphill battle in the Senate and an almost certain veto by President Obama - would allow any law-abiding concealed carry permit holder to legally carry a concealed firearm while visiting any state that does not prohibit concealed carry.

I'm glad that Mr. LaTourette voted yes on this bill. My rights shouldn't end at the state line. As law-abiding citizens, concealed carry license holders should be treated just like anybody with a valid driver's license. A driver's license is recognized by all states, and so should a CHL license.

As the Constitution says, the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.
