Pressure building to pass National Concealed Carry Reciprocity law

Bob Adelmann, for The New American, wrote this morning on the National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would ensure individual concealed carry access across numerous states. He reports:

In February when Representative Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.) reintroduced his Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015, Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) introduced an identical one in the Senate. Stutzman touted his bill:

“Americans enjoy a natural right to self-defense preserved by the Second Amendment. This federally guaranteed liberty should not be forfeited when state lines are crossed.

Unfortunately, this fundamental right has been under attack from the anti-gun lobby on both the federal and state levels. This bill preserves the right to keep and bear arms for law-abiding citizens while respecting the roles and responsibilities of state legislatures.”

Promoters such as the pro-Second Amendment group Gun Owners of America (GOA) are urging their members to press for passage:

“If you have a concealed carry permit — or if you come from a freedom-loving ‘constitutional carry’ state that doesn’t require one! — you should be able to carry anywhere in the country without fear of losing your constitutional rights [just] because of where you are.”
