President-elect Donald Trump found very vocal support for an interstate gun law from radio talk show host Howard Stern.
Stern spoke on his SiriusXM radio show last week, applauding Trump’s policy giving concealed carry permit holders the right to carry legally in any other state.
“When you think about it,” Stern said, “somebody is a legal and responsible gun owner – let’s say in Massachusetts – why when he crosses the border is he suddenly an outlaw?”
Current law requires state-by-state licensing for concealed carry but Trump, during the election campaign and on his website, endorsed an interstate reciprocity policy.
Trump’s position, published on the campaign website, stated:
The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.
“Many people who have carry permits, the majority of them, are the most law-abiding people in the country, so why not give them the right to carry wherever they are,” noted Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers, discussing Trump’s proposed policy.
“Makes total sense,” Stern, a Second Amendment defender and concealed carry permit holder himself, said. “I support that.”
With a Republican majority in the House and Senate, some form of a national interstate concealed carry reciprocity law could be passed in the Trump White House.
