    Ending Reciprocity

    Just as promised on the campaign trail, Pennsylvania’s Attorney General is now “modifying” reciprocity agreements to restrict carry in the Keystone State.
    Pennsylvania residents who have Florida permits can keep them, but they will no longer be valid in Pennsylvania. More importantly, non-Florida non-residents with Florida licenses can no longer carry in Pennsylvania. If you are a Delaware resident who carries in Pennsylvania on the Florida permit, you’re no longer legal to carry here.
    In fact, if I’m reading the press release and agreement correctly, there’s a good chance that Florida non-residents who may have been carrying on a Florida license in the last week have actually been carrying illegally. The new agreement went into effect last Friday, but the Attorney General did not post it or announce it until today.
    It would be great if a lawmaker would float Constitutional carry while another at least floats a bill to get reciprocity out of the hands of the Attorney General. If she plans to abuse her authority, then take the authority away from her.
    UPDATE: Interestingly, Philadelphia politicians from the AG’s party are trying to claim that reciprocity agreements are being completely dissolved:
    Her decision to dissolve Pennsylvania’s reciprocal conceal carry license agreement gives law enforcement and prosecutors a powerful tool that will keep Pennsylvanians safe.​
    Does this mean that the modification is just a first step and that other agreements will actually be dissolved?

    I don't like Kane for a number of reasons. However, if I read the tea leaves correctly, she's not too far off base with this move, abuse of authority aside. The idea of dual state citizenship isn't my favorite thing, it opens up some chances for dual voting. Full reciprocity makes sense to me, tho' it's apt to be a long time coming.

    Look for FL to retaliate.

    Yeah, there are snowbirds to consider. Let them get CCWs in both states, sez me, and maybe me only.
