GOA Urges U.S. House to Toughen its Stance on Concealed Carry Reciprocity

You already know the good news! Senators John Thune and David Vitter just introduced the Constitutional Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012 – and they already have 30 sponsors and cosponsors.

The Thune-Vitter bill, S. 2213, is important because it would give full reciprocity to all law-abiding gun owners in “constitutional carry”states.

Equally important is the fact that a compromise bill, introduced by anti-gun Senators Mark Begich (D-AK) and Max Baucus (D-MT) primarily for the purpose of maintaining Democratic control of the Senate, has only four sponsors and cosponsors.

But here’s the problem: The House already passed legislation similar to the compromise Begich-Manchin bill.

This should not be a huge problem. The Republican House would accept the pro-gun Thune-Vitter language in a heartbeat.

But it does allow Senators Mark Begich and Joe Manchin to argue for their watered-down bill by pointing to its similarity to the House-passed legislation.

The solution?
