Have gun will travel: Congress targets interstate concealed-carry restrictions

Capitol Hill lawmakers are moving to pass legislation that would effectively lift restrictions on traveling state to state with concealed weapons. The proposed laws would not only clear the path for gun owners with state-based concealed-carry permits but also for gun owners who live in states that require no permits to carry guns. The prospect has energized gun-rights activists and alarmed state and local officials, who say the legislation would blast holes in the long-established boundaries separating federal and local authority in regard to guns and safety and would present a grave threat to citizens and to law enforcement officials.
