U.S. Representative Richard Hudson introduced a National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill  (H.R. 38)  which would make your permit from your home state valid in all states, much like your driver's license.  This has bee introduced in previous sessions of congress but Washington D.C. has a different make up now. 

I like this proposal much more that a national permit.  A national permit system could be too easy to wipe our, by executive order for example.

The Supreme Court of the United States in Salinas v. Texas says your silence can be used against you if you do not expressly invoke your 5th Amendment privilege  to remain silent and not incriminate yourself.  You need to invoke the 5th early and often when questioned by police.  "I need to speak to my attorney before questioning and I do not consent to any search" !!!  :

Salinas v. Texas

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-246 Tex. Crim. App. Apr 17, 2013
Tr.Aud.
Jun 17, 2013 5-4 Alito OT 2012

Holding: When petitioner had not yet been placed in custody or received Miranda warnings, and voluntarily responded to some questions by police about a murder, the prosecution’s use of his silence in response to another question as evidence of his guilty at trial did not violate the Fifth Amendment because petitioner failed to expressly invoke his privilege not to incriminate himself in response to the officer’s question.

Judgment: Affirmed, 5-4, in an opinion by Justice Alito on June 17, 2013. Justice Thomas, joined by Justice Scalia, concurred only in the judgment. Justice Breyer filed a dissenting opinion joined by Justice Ginsburg, Justice Sotomayor, and Justice Kagan.
