Gun Owners of America

Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- You already know the good news! Senators John Thune and David Vitter just introduced the Constitutional Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012 – and they already have 30 sponsors and cosponsors.

The Thune-Vitter bill, S. 2213, is important because it would give full reciprocity to all law-abiding gun owners in “constitutional carry” states.

Equally important is the fact that a compromise bill, introduced by anti-gun Senators Mark Begich (D-AK) and Max Baucus (D-MT) primarily for the purpose of maintaining Democratic control of the Senate, has only four sponsors and cosponsors.

But here’s the problem: The House already passed legislation similar to the compromise Begich-Manchin bill.

This should not be a huge problem. The Republican House would accept the pro-gun Thune-Vitter language in a heartbeat.

But it does allow Senators Mark Begich and Joe Manchin to argue for their watered-down bill by pointing to its similarity to the House-passed legislation.

The solution?

House Republicans need to cosponsor the House counterpart to the Thune-Vitter bill, introduced by Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia.

The Broun bill, H.R. 2900, would recognize full reciprocity rights to “constitutional carry” states. Unlike Begich-Manchin, it would not require pro-gun states like Vermont to change their laws in order to take advantage of reciprocity.

A strong show of support for the House bill will let congressional leaders know that grassroots gun owners will not settle for a watered down, compromise bill that will actually undermine efforts at the state level to pass constitutional carry legislation.

ACTION: Contact your Congressman. Ask him or her to cosponsor the Constitutional Carry Reciprocity bill in the House, H.R. 2900.
