Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act Receives Endorsement from Gun Owners of America

Last week, North Carolina congressman Richard Hudson introduced H.R. 38 the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2021 with 154 co-sponsors. In addition, it counted on bipartisan support. 

“Our Second Amendment rights do not disappear when we cross state lines, and H.R. 38 guarantees that,” commented Hudson. “The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2021 is a common sense solution to provide law-abiding citizens the right to conceal carry and travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state codes or onerous civil suits. I am especially proud to have such widespread and bipartisan support for this measure and will work with my colleagues to get this legislation over the finish line.” 

“Our Second Amendment rights don’t end at the state border,” stated GOA Senior Vice President Erich Pratt. “Congress must immediately pass the Hudson bill so that honest people don’t go to jail, simply because they carried a firearm for self-defense.” 

The fact that this legislation has some degree of bipartisan support, shows the unifying nature of the Second Amendment. However, there is strong reason to believe that this bill will not go very far due to Democrat control of the Senate. 

Nevertheless, pro-gun groups should be pressing the envelope at all levels of government. Concealed carry reciprocity is one way to do so.
