We need action to stop a dangerous piece of legislation from becoming law — and we need unrelenting action, not just one call or letter.
HR 38, Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017
passed the House in December
now in the Senate Judiciary Committee
This heinous bill will allow anyone with a concealed carry permit in any state can carry a concealed weapon in any other state. One provision of this bill reads:
Additionally, the bill specifies that a qualified individual who lawfully carries or possesses a concealed handgun in another state: (1) is not subject to the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm in a school zone, and (2) may carryor possess the concealed handgun in federally owned lands that are open to the public.
According to this proposed law, a nutcase from Texas can carry his concealed firearm into a Virginia school zone. THE LUNATICS ARE RUNNING THIS ASYLUM!!!
Several states, especially Western and Southern states, have almost no qualifications for a person to obtain a concealed carry permit
Senators Kaine and Warner will vote against this bill in the Senate, still, we should contact them. If you have contacts in other states, urge them to contact their Senators, especially if they are Republicans. Here is contact information for Kaine and Warner:
