On January 3rd, Congressman Richard Hudson introduced the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, also known as H.R. 38. It’s designed to clear a cluttered legal minefield of gun laws, and would allow gun owners with legal concealed carry permits to exercise their rights anywhere in the United States.
A sigh of relief for legal permit holders who would no longer have to worry about the impossible-to-understand web of laws on where concealed carry permits are, and are not, recognized.
To liberals, that’s unacceptable. Bureaucracy and legal mumbo-jumbo are critical to their quest to suppress the Second Amendment, and they are already on the attack.
Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit dedicated to limiting Second Amendment rights, immediately launched a campaign attempting to raise opposition to the bill. In an online petition hosted by left-wing news source Daily Kos, the group claimed that the bill would, “allow dangerous individuals – including convicted criminals, domestic abusers, and stalkers – to legally carry weapons in public.”
Wrong. Did they even read the bill?
Even under the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, it will remain illegal for criminals to have a firearm, including convicted criminals, abusers and stalkers, as specifically stated under federal law 18 U.S.C 922(g).
But Everytown for Gun Safety is using liberal logic, and are deliberately trying to confuse voters on the bill.
In fact, legal reciprocity is already extended to concealed carry permits in 22 states, and the NRA claims recognizing these permits across all states is the most logical step in advancing legal and safe firearm possession.

But logical reasoning obviously doesn’t resonate with the loony left.
