National Reciprocity Bill Moving Forward

posted on September 29, 2017

National reciprocity legislation is moving closer and closer to being heard in the House. H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, now has 212 co-sponsors—Congressman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., was the latest to sign on, as NRA-ILA recently noted

The measure will recognize concealed-carry permits in all states. If passed, law-abiding gun owners will no longer need to worry about traveling to another state and not being covered by reciprocity agreements—a situation that can lead to the sort of injustices that Ginny Simone has reported on numerous times. Citizens in states with permitless carry would also be allowed to carry in all other states.
