Emanuel And De Blasio Lead Mayors Group In Opposing National Reciprocity

posted on June 28, 2017

On Tuesday during its annual gathering, the U.S. Conference of Mayors came out against national concealed-carry reciprocity as they announced a resolution opposing House H.R. 38 and Senate S. 446—legislation that would enable law-abiding firearm owners to carry concealed firearms across all state lines.

The mayors group—led by long-time gun control advocates New York City Major Bill de Blasio and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel—argued that the measures “are completely antithetical to all of the efforts to reduce and prevent gun violence,” reported Politico. But Rep. Richard Hudson, author of H.R. 38, took exception to the resolution, stating that it “shows a misunderstanding of the legislation.”

He released his own statement in response. It read in part: “It is unfortunate that this group of mayors has decided to parrot the talking points of anti-Second Amendment crusader Michael Bloomberg who has vowed to spend millions to stop my bill instead of working to uphold the Constitutional right of all Americans. Simply put, this resolution is a bridge too far.”
