Everything we have fought for comes down to this.
Tomorrow, the House of Representatives is scheduled to hold a floor debate and full vote on H.R. 38 – The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.
We have supported and championed this legislation from the very beginning, bombarding Congress with literally millions of FaxBlasts in the past two to three years. All of that hard work has paid off. The legislation was moved through committee last week and all of the major pro-gun provisions remained intact after the mark up.
This is the legislation that would expand the right to carry to ALL law abiding Americans in ALL fifty states!
Here’s how it works. If you have been permitted to carry a concealed firearm by any state, then that would extend to all states. That includes — and this is really important — non-resident permits.
There are still a handful of liberal states that refuse to obey the Constitution and allow their residents to carry firearms in public for self-defense. These states maintain they have the right to deny any concealed carry permit applicant at any time, for any reason. They are New York, New Jersey, California, Maryland, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Delaware. Washington DC used to be on that list, but their law was ruled unconstitutional earlier this year.
Believe it or not, those nine states contain more than 26% of the country’s population. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act will not only extend full nationwide reciprocity to Americans who already have carry permits, but it would open the door for the 1/4 of all Americans living behind the gun control iron curtain to do the same!
This is the most pro-gun bill ever to reach the floor of the House of Representatives. Already, gun control organizations and liberal media outlets are trying desperately to derail it. You CANNOT allow that to happen!
This legislation will tear down more than a century of anti-gun laws that have kept law abiding Americans from exercising their right to bear arms in public. It would remove the patchwork reciprocity system we currently have and ensure that every law-abiding, capable American’s rights are respected nationwide.
Paul Ryan tried desperately to block this bill. But ultimately, it was YOU that forced the rest of the House to force a vote.
The fight in the Senate will be hard, but not impossible. We need eight votes and there are currently 10 Democrat Senators up for re-election next year in Red and Purple pro-gun states that Donald Trump won in 2016. Each and every one of them will have to go on record and declare whether they support the 2nd Amendment or disarmament.
We have the strategy to get this legislation to Donald Trump’s desk, but that has to start with a win in the House of Representatives. Currently, the bill has 214 official co-sponsors. By our count, there are more than enough Conservatives for it to pass, but it still hasn’t technically hit the magic number of 218. Anything can still happen. Ryan has gotten cold feet and pulled this bill from the schedule twice before.
We must keep fighting!
Together, we have taken a pipe-dream to the floor of the House of Representatives. This is a major accomplishment. However, it’s not quite time to celebrate yet. There are plenty of anti-gun liberals (in both parties) who want to see this bill fail. It is up to each and every one of us to push this legislation across the finish line right now!
This is truly a historic moment. Decades from now, our descendants will learn about this moment in history and hear the story of how liberty loving Conservatives took back their rights.
When my great-great-grandchildren ask what I did to preserve the 2nd Amendment as the Founders intended it, I want the answer to be “everything he possibly could.”
What will your answer be?
Now or never,
