NRA-ILA Chief Vows Push For National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity

posted on May 24, 2016

Speaking to the NRA Annual Meeting of Members in Louisville, Ky., on Saturday, Executive Director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action Chris Cox said, “We need a Congress to pass national Right-to-Carry reciprocity and a president to sign it into law, and we’re not going to stop until we get it.”

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who also addressed NRA members at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum on Friday, has also said that Right-to-Carry permits issued by states should be recognized by all 50 states. 

Trump also took aim at the naive and counterproductive concept of so-called “gun-free zones,” whose only effect is to leave good people defenseless against evil people who are guaranteed plenty of disarmed and helpless victims. “We’re getting rid of gun-free zones, OK? I can tell you that,” Trump said. “We’re getting rid of them.”
