NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- On November 29, Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Mastro joined nine other state attorneys general, including those from California and New York, and signed her name to a letter sent to the U.S. Senate leadership urging them to oppose important pro-gun federal legislation.

The target legislation is S. 2188 and S. 2213, the Senate companion bills of H.R. 822 (National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act).  H.R. 822, which has 245 cosponsors, passed last year in the U.S. House of Representatives by a 272-154 vote, including affirmative votes from all three of Nevada’s congressional representatives.  Earlier this year, a letter of support for H.R. 822 from attorneys general in 22 states and Guam (reported on here) was sent to the U.S. Senate leadership.

Under this self-defense bill, an individual who has met the requirements for a carry permit, or who is otherwise allowed by state law to carry a handgun, would be authorized to carry a handgun in any other state that issues such permits or does not prohibit concealed carry, subject to the laws of the state in which it is carried.  State laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within each state’s borders.

As of today, 49 states have laws in place that permit their citizens to carry a concealed firearm in some form.  Only Illinois denies its residents the right to carry concealed firearms outside their homes or businesses for self-defense.

Please contact Attorney General Cortez Mastro today, and respectfully ask that she reverse her position on this important issue.  Her contact information is provided here.

      If you are anti-gun, then change the US Constitution by repealing Amendment II which states “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”(Ratified 12/15/1791). However, as long as Amendment II is a part of the US Constitution, all elected officials and judges are obligated by their oath of office to support the US Constitution, in its entirety, and that includes Amendment II. That also includes all AGs. If they are not willing to support the US Constitution, in its entirety, then that is a violation of their oath of office which, I believe, constitutes grounds for impeachment!
