Civil-Suit Provision in House-Passed Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill (H.R. 38): Scope and Application [February 21, 2018]   [open pdf - 284KB]

"In December 2017, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 38, The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. H.R. 38's overarching purpose is to allow persons who are eligible to carry a concealed handgun in one state to lawfully carry a handgun in other states that have a concealed-carry regime for their residents, without regard to differences in the states' eligibility requirements for concealed carry. In furtherance of this goal, the bill authorizes a private right of action against any person who interferes with a concealed-carry right that the bill establishes."
