NRA-ILA Debunks Everytown Claims On National Reciprocity

posted on July 18, 2017

An article on the NRA Institute for Legislative Action’s website identifies the latest piece of misinformation peddled by Everytown for Gun Safety. The Michael Bloomberg-backed anti-gun group has been claiming victory because national Right-to-Carry reciprocity is not yet the law of the land.

Never mind that anti-gun activists are losing ground across the country, with permitless carry and campus carry laws going into effect in state after state. Never mind that support for Right-to-Carry reciprocity is higher than ever before and may soon be strong enough to pass a bill through the House. Because such a landmark win for gun rights hasn’t happened yet, Everytown would have supporters believe that they are to be congratulated.

This appears to be the latest trend in messaging from anti-gun groups. Without significant victories to speak of, Everytown and their ideological comrades have been reduced to bragging about the defeats they made it through the week without suffering.
