Congress Could Consider National Carry Bill Soon!

Friday, October 7, 2011

As we have been reporting, H.R. 822, the “National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011”, is on the move in the U.S. House of Representatives.  On September 13, House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security held a hearing on H.R. 822.  The House could consider H.R. 822 in the next few weeks, so it is critically important that you contact your U.S. Representative immediately about this vital legislation.

 

Unfortunately, not only do we have to continuously battle the ignorance and misrepresentation by our anti-gun opponents, but also by some so-called “pro-gun” organizations.

 

This bill is GOOD for gun owners. 

 

This bill ENHANCES Americans’ right to self-defense by enabling millions of permit holders to exercise their right to self-defense while traveling outside their home states.

 

There is currently only one remaining state (Illinois) that has no clear legal way for individuals to carry concealed firearms for self-defense.  H.R. 822 would require states to recognize each others' lawfully issued carry permits, just as they recognize driver's licenses and carry permits held by armored car guards.

 

This bill DOES NOT:

·         Create a federal licensing or registration system;

·         Establish a minimum federal standard for the carry permit;

·         Involve the federal bureaucracy in setting standards for carry permit;

·         Destroy permitless carry systems such as those in Arizona, Alaska, Vermont and Wyoming.

H.R. 822 is a good bill for gun owners.  Don’t listen to false claims.  Read the bill yourself and read our fact sheet to get the facts.  Then, please contact your member of Congress and urge him or her to support the earliest possible consideration of H.R. 822 this year.

 

You can find contact information for your U.S. Representative by using the "Write Your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org.  You may also contact your Representative by phone at (202) 225-3121. 

 

Please watch for future Alerts on H.R. 822’s status and what you can do to help ensure it passes out of the Judiciary Committee.
