Nikki Goeser Speaks Out On National Carry Reciprocity

posted on August 11, 2017

A woman who saw her husband gunned down by a stalker because both he and she were left disarmed in a gun-free zone is speaking out in favor of national Right-to-Carry reciprocity legislation being considered in Congress.

In a lengthy interview at the Daily Caller, Nikki Goeser said: “National reciprocity is an important issue to me. I am trusted by the state of Tennessee and other reciprocal states to carry my gun for self-defense. However, I recently traveled to California and Washington, D.C., and unfortunately, I am not trusted to carry there. I was disarmed by their restrictive laws and left vulnerable in the very places where I was going to talk about gun rights and the dangers of gun-free zones.”

Goeser added: “The Second Amendment clearly states that our personal rights to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, yet all over this nation those rights are infringed to the detriment of our liberty and our safety. In that vein, while I am not a fan of being required to have handgun carry permits, if we do have them, they should be treated like a driver’s license and recognized in every state.”
