Democrats Vow To Kill National RTC Reciprocity

posted on December 3, 2016

A Second Amendment advocate from the start, President-elect Donald Trump has been working closely with NRA to help create pro-gun legislation that will make life easier for America’s millions of gun owners. The top priority has been the creation of a national Right-to-Carry reciprocity agreement, but unfortunately Senate Democrats have vowed to fight such legislation tooth-and-nail. 

With the wide variation between laws governing the carry of firearms—laws that can change radically between state lines, or even between municipalities—law-abiding gun owners risk becoming ensnared in red tape. “People are turned into criminals because of the confusing patchwork of laws around the country,” Jennifer Baker,” NRA spokeswoman, said. “Law-abiding citizens should be able to exercise their constitutional right regardless of what state they’re sitting in.” 

But while NRA, Trump and GOP lawmakers are already hard at work trying to make this a reality, it will have to jump some tall hurdles on its way to becoming law: While a bill has been introduced that would allow individuals carrying firearms anywhere in the nation to abide by the laws of their home state, Democrats have already promised to filibuster should such a bill make it to the floor of the Senate.
