Howard Stern Backs Trump On RTC Reciprocity

Radio talk icon Howard Stern is backing President-elect Donald Trump’s proposal for interstate Right-to-Carry reciprocity.

This law has been NRA’s number-one legislative agenda item for several years. And with the election of Donald Trump as president, and the retention of pro-gun majorities in both houses of the U.S. Congress, the prospects for such a law have never looked better.  

Stern and his longtime co-host, Robin Quivers, echoed those sentiments in their own comments. “When you think about it,” Stern said, “somebody is a legal and responsible gun owner—let’s say in Massachusetts—why, when he crosses the border, is he suddenly an outlaw?” As Quivers elaborated on how current law requires state-by-state licensing for concealed carry and how Trump’s proposal would protect licensees traveling interstate, Stern interjected, “Makes total sense,” and, “I support that.”
