GOP introduces nat‘l reciprocity bill in Senate

Senators Cornyn, Hagerty, Grassley and Inhofe have introduced a senate bill that would allow people who hold carry permits in their own state to have those same rights (subject to local laws) in other states that also issue permits.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is co-sponsored by 27 other GOP senators.

Obviously the chances of this making it past Pelosi and Schumer and Biden are vanishingly small. But as usual, it forces legislators from not-insanely-far-left but still blue states to go on the record showing they prefer the patchwork of state permit insanity. Have fun stormin‘ the castle, boys! It‘s a principled, but unlikely to be productive effort.

If it can get Senators from squishy (D) areas on record as supporting, might go a long way in heading off any further gun control efforts.

The rinos know this has no chance they through this out to keep us thinking they give a crap about us and voting them in office. Plan and simple they want our votes so they give us crap to eat. And we lap it up like we are leaving a 2 week fat farm visit.

Too bad they didn't even had the balls to do this when the had the White House, House, and Senate. I know it wouldn't have passed but it would've been a better look.
Reminds me of when they voted to repeal Obamacare so many times when they didn't have the majority and then when they did they showed their true colors.

Yep. They are controlled opposition.

This gets introduced regularly over the years . Zero chance of ever passing as a freestanding Bill . The perpetual wild card would be for it to get attatched to a huge " must pass " bill , like happened with National Parks carry .

The most charitable take is to at least occasionally make the other side have to react to our initivies instead of our always being 100% defensive .

And then , a significant portion of gun rights advocates ( including me ) can tell you why is is a Bad idea .

While this Congress won't pass it, I do think a win at SCOTUS in NYSRPA will be a big boost for it in the future. The anti states won't be able to outright deny individuals under the "need" statute.
