NRA-ILA Chief Vows Push For National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity

Speaking to the NRA Annual Meeting of Members in Louisville, Ky., on Saturday, Executive Director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action Chris Cox said, “We need a Congress to pass national Right-to-Carry reciprocity and a president to sign it into law, and we’re not going to stop until we get it.”

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who also addressed NRA members at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum on Friday, has also said that Right-to-Carry permits issued by states should be recognized by all 50 states. 

Trump also took aim at the naive and counterproductive concept of so-called “gun-free zones,” whose only effect is to leave good people defenseless against evil people who are guaranteed plenty of disarmed and helpless victims. “We’re getting rid of gun-free zones, OK? I can tell you that,” Trump said. “We’re getting rid of them.”
