President Donald Trump campaigned for a national concealed carry reciprocity bill, much to the anguish of anti-gun Democrats.
A year ago, Rep Richard Hudson (R-NC), introduced such a bill into the House and after a chaotic year filled with budgets, healthcare and tax cuts, the House finally passed the bill in early December and sent it to the Senate, where it now lies in the hands of the most inept and worthless Republican Senate Majority Leader in modern history, Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Hudson told the media that Trump is prepared to sign a national concealed carry reciprocity bill if and when it ever reaches his desk.
(The Daily Caller) – Republican North Carolina Rep. Richard Hudson believes law-abiding Americans should be allowed to carry their concealed weapons in every state, and he’s hoping the White House will help him soon make that a reality.
“I can tell you, the president’s ready to sign this law,” Hudson told The Daily Caller Wednesday in an exclusive interview on the subject for TheDC’s “Newsmakers” series.
“President Trump actually campaigned on concealed carry reciprocity,” the North Carolina Republican recalled. “We’ve got a partner in the White House and we just got to get it to his desk.”
Hudson introduced the House version of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act on January 3, 2017, and the bill finally passed on December 6. Hudson says he spoke with the president at the time, and is set to meet with Trump’s staff this coming week.
“I spoke to [Trump] very briefly in December, and I’ve been talking with his staff,” Hudson revealed. “I’ve got a meeting actually next week over there to see what we can do together to help continue the momentum coming off this House vote.”
Currently, concealed carry reciprocity is handled individually by each state. Virginia, for instance, respects concealed carry permits issued by 25 other states…
If a national concealed carry reciprocity bill never reaches President Trump’s desk, the fault will lie solely on McConnell. It’s important for every concerned American to contact their Senator and push them to push McConnell to make this happen, for the sake of gun rights and the right to protect one’s self when traveling across the land.
