Feinstein Tries to Thwart National Right to Carry

Friday, April 20, 2012

This week, anti-gun Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) did her part to thwart passage of national Right-to-Carry laws by putting a "hold" on the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012, and the Respecting States' Rights and Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012.

In keeping with her anti-gun record, Feinstein took action in an effort to oppose the quick passage of the bills.  The "hold" does not prevent passage of the bills; it just prevents the legislation from passing by an already unlikely "unanimous consent" vote.

In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Judiciary Committee Chair Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) Feinstein called the bills "dangerous" and said that they would "create potentially life threatening situations for law enforcement officers."  She also cited the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting as one of her reasons for trying to sabotage the bills.

Feinstein's misguided campaign to thwart these bills is nothing more than an opportunistic jump back into the ring of gun-control at a time she deems politically expedient.

NRA strongly supports the measures Sen. Feinstein opposes (H.R. 822, S. 2188 and S. 2213).

These self-defense bills would allow honest Americans to protect themselves while traveling. 

As of today, 49 states have laws in place that permit their citizens to carry a concealed firearm in some form.  Only Illinois and the District of Columbia deny their residents the right to carry concealed firearms outside their homes or businesses for self-defense.
