New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- We have less than two weeks left before the Senate adjourns for the Christmas Holiday.
If the Senate fails to act on national concealed handgun carry reciprocity within the next two weeks, any chance that this measure will be taken up anew and that it will become a reality when the House of Representatives seats a Democratic Party majority in 2019 will be virtually nil.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has been sitting on the bill that was sent to Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, last December 2017, when it passed the Republican-controlled House. The version of national concealed handgun carry reciprocity that passed the House is designated, 115 H.R. 38, “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017.” Once Senator McConnell received it, he sent it immediately to the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Charles Grassley, for action. No work was done on it, and a year has gone by since the Judiciary Committee had received it.
It is imperative we get the House version of the bill onto the Floor of the Senate for an immediate roll-call vote.
This Matter Requires The Concerted Effort Of Each Of Us.
