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:
