Fairfax, VA – -( 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.

H.R. 38 would not, as some critics claim, affect how states issue their own concealed carry permits. It would also require those taking advantage of its protections to obey the laws for concealed carry in each state in which they travel.

Concealed carry reciprocity is already the norm in most states.  This legislation is merely a commonsense follow-up to this successful initiative.

The few states that target law-abiding concealed carriers from other jurisdictions for criminal prosecution consider the bearing of arms in public for self-defense a privilege reserved for the elite, rather than a constitutional right. When states trample on constitutional rights, Congress has the authority and responsibility to act.

    1. I live in Englewood, FL and called my Congressman Thomas Rooney to ask him to support HR-38. To my surprise, they informed me he not only supports it, he’s a cosponsor of the bill.

      1. And how is that working for you? The Constitution of the U.S. does not fight for you. Are you willing to fight for it?

      2. @Bud, What you write is true, but this reciprocity bill is more of a slap in the face of states that are currently defying the Constitution and our Second Amendment Civil Right.

    2. If there is to be any consideration for banning “bump stocks” and the like, it should be within the context of a bill like this. You know, a true compromise where each side gets something they want.

      1. Thank you Mr Chamberlain, at least we’ll have peace in our time.
        The Constitution is NOT to be tampered with. It is the basis for ALL the laws in this country. If the law doesn’t agree with the Constitution, it is invalid. It’s a very simple concept, NEVER give in with evil.
