Texas Senator Cornyn Introduces Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act


Jan 13 2014

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) today introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014, which would allow individuals with concealed carry privileges in their home state to exercise those rights in any other state that also has concealed carry laws. The legislation is cosponsored by U.S. Sens. Thune (R-SD), Vitter (R-LA), Graham (R-SC), Boozman (R-AR), Inhofe (R-OK), Crapo (R-ID), Burr (R-NC), Cochran (R-MS), Johanns (R-NE), Enzi (R-WY), Moran (R-KS), Roberts (R-KS), and Portman (R-OH).

“This bill strengthens two of our nation’s most fundamental rights, ensuring law-abiding gun owners can lawfully carry their weapons into like-minded states, while respecting the rights of states to adopt laws that are best-suited for the people of that state. This is an important affirmation of the Second Amendment and one that has been a top priority of law-abiding gun owners in Texas for some time. It is time to get this done.”

The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014 would treat state-issued concealed-carry permits like drivers’ licenses, allowing law-abiding citizens with concealed carry privileges to concealed-carry in any other states that also permit it by law.

Dear Friends of the National Guard and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers Association The SNCA is looking forward to its 1st Annual Golf Tournament on SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 at Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove Township, NJ. We are a non-profit organization from the National Guard that returns 100% of all proceeds to the Soldiers and Airman of the New Jersey National Guard and their families. Our organization strives to remain in touch with the families of deployed Soldiers and Airman to provide any assistance they may need. Among the many ways we care for our families is to: provide academic scholarships, provide assistance when a child is born, and support with events such as weddings, deaths and any emergency situations that may arise. It is our goal to support our Soldiers, Airman and their families every way we can.

As you may be aware, over 9,000 men and women of the New Jersey National Guard have deployed at least once to Iraq or Afghanistan, selflessly volunteering to support and defend our countty against terrorism in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. In addition, there are several more that are projected to deploy over the next few months.

In June 2004, we lost four brothers, SPC Christopher Duffy, SGT Frank Carville, SSG Humberto Timeteo and SGT Ryan Doltz, and in October 2011, we lost another brother, SSG Jorge Oliveira. All of these good men were taken from us too soon and we grieve their passmg.

Our organization has established a “Fallen Heroes Fund” that will provide assistance to the families of those that perish in the line of duty, and with your help and participation look fotward to helping children and families that may need our support. In addition, we have established a college fund for some of the families and wish to support those that are in need of our assistance. With your partnership, this can all come to fruition.

We thank you very much for supporting New Jersey Soldiers, Airman, their families, and our country through your support for this event.


NJSP Update

Message below is from NJSP (Firearms Investigation Unit)

Please share with retired members:

Retired law enforcement personnel currently enrolled (or making current application) into the RPO Permit to Carry Program not contact/call our unit requesting an update or current status of their Permit. There is an over abundance of calls coming into the office where there is only one Supervisor along with one secretary whom are handling these matters.

Also, Hurricane Sandy along with shooting related incidents such as Newtown have increased the amount of RPO applications, along with ID card and Pistol Permit requests which are received in an exorbitant fashion/amount to this unit from local police stations, as well as the State Police Barracks throughout NJ. I thank you for your time regarding this matter.
