Concealed Carry Reciprocity is on the Move: Your Lawmakers Need to Hear from You NOW!

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a full committee mark-up of H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, this Wednesday! It’s therefore more important than ever to urge your member of Congress to support this crucial legislation.

Concealed carry reciprocity is the NRA’s highest legislative priority in Congress. It would ensure that states recognize the concealed carry credentials of other states. This would end abuses in anti-gun states like New York and New Jersey and allow law-abiding concealed carriers to exercise their rights nationwide with peace of mind.
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. - John Adams

My rep, Hon. McCaul, is already a cosponsor. I reminded him to keep supporting.

Well, I sent a note to Jared Polis, but I am not hopeful.

Called my rep this morning. Aide was not able to tell me if he's for or against, but I'm going to guess with the capital (D) next to his name.

That doesn't matter. Mine is a co-sponsor too, but I still sent the email.

Unfortunately it will never get 60 votes for cloture in the Senate. Doubtful it could even get 50 with the surrender caucus of McLame, Collins, Corker, et al... :roll:
