National reciprocity?? where are we

22 posts in this topic

I was going to say "dead in the water"  I don't want to be accused of being of not being  cheerleaderistic enough. So, I'll say it has met some challenges, but under the right paradigm, there is a high probability of a successful outcome.

National reciprocity (NR) does almost nothing for those in states who's rights are most under assault. If you are a NJ resident and can't carry now in NJ, you will not be able to carry if NR ever passes. It is a "special interest" proposal that helps the "elites" on both sides, and a very small % of shooters who are not elites. Really a misguided effort by the NRA and waste of political resources when so many (more) important 2A issues are on the table. Even the NRA spokespeople make a lame case for "NR", "So I can take my gun when I want to eat in a restaurant in a lefty state". Sorry, can't feel sorry for you, when so many in places like NJ, CA, etc. will be put in jail or shot for carrying at all outside their home.

If they change NR, to National Carry Rights for all (which would intrinsically contain reciprocity), I'd be 100% behind it. And it would be consistent with the "bear" in Keep and bear arms for all citizens.

On a "happy" note, I'm very impressed with the NJ-NRA-Affiliate's efforts with the recent NJ Shall-Issue law suite, and the pending mag-limit suite. This is stuff that actually has a chance for helping every NJ shooter, and the only chance we have. The federal-level republican legislation will not come to our aid, even with all 3 parties as republican's, and not enough gun owners in NJ vote out the lefties here (shame on us for the amount of apathy or maybe they just want a sanctuary state over carry rights ;-) - go figure).

National Reciprocity is a campaign promise that has been utterly broken by the Republican Party.  They had majorities in the House, the Senate, and a sitting President, and they said they would do it when they ran for office, and they got elected, and they didn't do it.

I think he still may. NRA dumped a ton of cash into him based on it. He's waiting for the right time. You cannot expect something like this to go through or even mentioned during a mass shooting,. It would just not look right. Everything needs to calm down.
He has been fulfilling promises. He's hell bent making sure things are done as promised.

There will never be a good time to pass reciprocity. The shootings are going to increase in frequency.The MSM will see to that with glorification of the shooters and promoting competition among would be shooters.

That's why we need to flip the script. Gun free zones and lack of ccw has not worked. We need to eliminate gun free zones and allow every law abiding citizen to carry.

Have to ask if all these "events" were actually anomalies or not...

Unfortunately many people on either end of the spectrum wouldn't be above taking life to get their way.

There were exactly zero witnesses or video evidence of James Holmes, Adam Lanza, or Nicholas Cruz pulling the trigger. San Bernardino witnesses said 3 athletic white males and their lawyer said they were found handcuffed in the vehicle. Media coverage ended. What do you think?

Latest Action: Senate - 12/07/2017 Received in the Senate and Read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. 

 

So, it's been sitting since December with ZERO action...

So, does anyone think the Senate will vote on it after this November, assuming the Repubs still have the majority in the Senate, and don't lose it?
