Your Immediate Action Required; National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act Going to House Floor Soon

Friday, November 4, 2011

We continue to report on the importance of H.R. 822—the “National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011” and to detail the truth about why the legislation is very good for gun owners.  The bill will be heading to the U.S. House floor soon, and it is imperative that you contact your U.S. Representative IMMEDIATELY and urge him or her to support this critically important legislation.

A great deal of misguided, unfounded, and incorrect information has been circulated about the legislation, but the allegations are simply not true.

Simply put, H.R. 822 is a good bill and is good for gun owners.  The bill will enable America’s millions of permit holders to exercise their right to self-defense while traveling outside their home states by requiring states to recognize each others' lawfully-issued carry permits, just as they recognize driver's licenses and carry permits held by armored car guards.

H.R. 822 does not create a federal licensing or registration system; does not establish a minimum federal standard for the carry permit; does not involve the federal bureaucracy in setting standards for carry permit; and it does not destroy or discourage the adoption of permitless carry systems such as those in Arizona, Alaska, Vermont and Wyoming.

Again, H.R. 822 will soon be on the House floor.  Please IMMEDIATELY contact your member of Congress and urge him or her to support the earliest possible consideration of H.R. 822.

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.  Additionally, you may CLICK HERE TO EMAIL YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS.

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 more facts.
