There has been a lot of news in the gun community recently.
But one item you may have missed is the briefing that Gun Owners recently hosted for legislators and their staffs.
We are working hard on Capitol Hill to help North Carolina Republican Richard??Hudson get a majority of Representatives to sign on to his concealed carry reciprocity bill, H.R. 38.
The results have been very encouraging, so far.
I spoke briefly to the congressional audience two weeks ago, emphasizing that concealed carry reciprocity will save the lives of gun owners and their families.
And I related the story of a New Hampshire concealed carrier, who was disarmed by the laws of Massachusetts.
This gun owning Army veteran was murdered while doing work in the latter state, all because he (as a law-abiding citizen) chose to leave his gun at home. You can read that story here.
Rep. Hudson then followed me at the podium to speak about H.R. 38, the concealed carry reciprocity bill.
“We are already at 146 cosponsors in just a month,” Rep. Hudson reported. “A lot of that has to do with grassroots organizations like Gun Owners of America pushing to get more cosponsors.”
Read that paragraph again.
That is the statement from a U.S. Representative who is thanking YOU for all your hard work.
We at Gun Owners of America are only as powerful as the voice of our membership.
So when you “pound” on your legislators to take action, it makes a HUGE difference on Capitol Hill.
That’s why I am very grateful for the action that you and others have taken in response to email alerts like this one.
