National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Vote Coming Soon

Daniel White, the Cleveland Gun Rights Examiner writes this morning about the Thune-Vitter amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (S. 1390) which would provide for interstate recognition of Right-to-Carry permits. NRA-ILA reported on Friday that it is highly likely the amendment would come up for a vote today or tomorrow.

The Thune-Vitter amendment recognizes that responsible, law-abiding Americans deserve the right to defend themselves and their families when they cross state lines. Passing interstate Right-to-Carry legislation will help further reduce crime by deterring criminals, and—most important of all—will protect the right of honest Americans to protect themselves when deterrence fails.

We are a highly mobile society. There is absolutely no reason that a Virginian, who has a concealed handgun permit (CHP), and takes a cross country trip, should not be able to carry their firearm to be prepared should he or she need it for self defense. Call Mark Warner and Jim Webb and encourage them to vote for the Thune-Vitter amendment on concealed carry national reciprocity to S.1390.
