Dem AGs Taking On Concealed Carry Reciprocity

posted on October 24, 2017

As the National Rifle Association works diligently to try to ensure that law-abiding Americans have the means to protect themselves regardless of where in the U.S. they choose to travel, anti-gun Democrat attorneys general are pushing back against national concealed-carry reciprocity legislation.

“With the worst shooting in American history fresh in our memory, we urge you and your colleagues to reject these ill-conceived bills,” a group of state attorneys general wrote in a letter to Congress, according to an AP report. Ironically, the Las Vegas shooting had nothing whatsoever to do with national reciprocity.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017—which has more than 200 co-sponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives—remains the NRA’s top legislative priority this year. And there’s a good reason why.

“The current patchwork of state and local gun laws is confusing and can cause the most conscientious and law-abiding gun owner to run afoul of the law when they are traveling or temporarily living away from home,” explained Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA-ILA. “Law-abiding citizens should be able to exercise their fundamental right to self-defense while traveling across state lines.”
