Democrats don’t want the American people to be armed or have the ability to protect themselves from criminals. Their desire is to pass so many gun control laws so that it will get to the point that law-abiding citizens will not be able to own any type of firearm.
Republicans on the other hand value and defend the Second Amendment right to own and bear a firearm. In many Republican controlled states, concealed carry and constitutional carry laws are being passed to give law-abiding citizens the right to bear a gun for self-protection,
Some Republicans in Congress believe that every state should recognize and honor the concealed carry laws and permits of other states (reciprocity), just like they do with driver’s licenses.
However, Democrats are totally against any reciprocity for concealed carry permit holders and the officials in the two most anti-gun states are leading the fight to stop efforts to pass a national concealed carry reciprocity act.
Officials in California and New York—two of the most gun-controlled states in the union—are leading the fight against national reciprocity of concealed carry for law-abiding citizens.
Breitbart News reported that Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) introduced national reciprocity on January 3 and Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced companion legislation in the Senate. Both pieces of legislation would treat concealed carry permits like a driver’s license, making the permit of one state valid in every state.
Gun-control activists are up in arms over the legislation, because it would immediately do away with strict gun controls in a number of states. For example, California currently only recognizes its own concealed carry permit as valid, and does not recognize reciprocity with any other state. When combined with the state’s “good cause” requirement for Californians, the stringent carry rules have kept the licensed number of legal carriers at less than 100,000…
Voters need to realize that Democrats, like those leading California and New York, care nothing about voters’ personal safety. They intentionally ignore all of the many reports, studies and facts that show that areas with fewer guns and more gun control laws have higher crime rates than areas where more people are armed and ready to defend themselves. Their motive is not to reduce gun violence as they claim, but it’s their agenda to disarm the American people and voters need to think about that every time they got the polls.
