Offer to let CHL holders bypass the security line at the Capitol, which is happening in Texas:
Both veteran lobbyists are among dozens, perhaps hundreds, of the nearly 1,500 registered lobbyists who are scrambling to get state licenses to allow them to carry concealed handguns. Most don’t want to pack a pistol, though they legally could, but want the license to get into the State Capitol quickly during the legislative session that starts in January.
Even if they aren’t planning on carrying, just having them go through the course is a large benefit for our cause. It at leastÂ dispelsÂ the notion that carrying a firearm legally has anything to do with being a cowboy, or shooting it out over a parking space. This works in Texas because CHL holders are allowed to carry at the Capitol. This is not the case in Pennsylvania, where the Capitol is is off limits because of the presence of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Carrying a pistol will cost you time here, as there is a check-in process with the Capitol Police.
