This morning on Stinchfield, Grant was joined by Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) to discuss the schedule for passing National Reciprocity. President Trump has previously expressed that he would sign this bill, but Grant asks Rep. Hice: where is it?
"Just from talking to colleagues, there's a lot of traction, a lot of movement, a lot of interest in it," Hice said. "We've all heard the horror stories of getting pulled over from one state to the next, and it's just insane. If a driver's license is good from one state to the next, a concealed carry permit ought to be as well."
Grant expressed the concern that Congress is having a tough time of getting anything done. With other important legislation coming down the pipeline, he says he can easily picture National Reciprocity getting put on the backburner and never coming up for a vote.
"We're going to do everything we can to make sure that doesn't happen," Hice said. "And it's true. I think right now there's been some distraction because there's other major issues that have been top priority that we've been dealing with. But there is a lot of interest and momentum, I believe, with reciprocity, and I think we're going to be able to move forward with it."
