H.R. 822 (National Right to Carry) Passes House
The National Right to Carry Act, a piece of legislation that would enable those with concealed carry permit in any state to carry in every other state that issues concealed carry permits, has passed the House of Representatives with flying colors. The final vote was almost 2:1 in favor of the bill, mostly along party lines with Republicans in favor of passage. Heck, even one of the representatives from Illinois rose in support of the bill, stating that he wanted the passage of the bill to send a message to the governor of his state that concealed carry needs to be enacted in that state, just like it has been in the other 49 states in the Union. The debate was fascinating to watch . . .

As one of Congress’s most vocal advocates for reducing gun violence, I wish to express my disappointment with the House leadership and many of my colleagues after the passage of H.R. 822, the National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act.
