Now Is The Time For National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

Too often, families visiting out-of-state relatives or business professionals traveling for work get caught up in unknowingly criminal situations due to convoluted concealed carry permit laws. This makes it nearly impossible for them to move between states while retaining confidence in their ability to defend themselves or loved ones.

You wouldn’t think twice about crossing from one state to the next to go on vacation, visit loved ones, or go to work. Why should something so consequential as being able to defend your family’s safety be in jeopardy simply because you crossed from one state to another?

National Concealed Carry Reciprocity is a common-sense & long overdue solution to help more Americans protect themselves and their families. It’s time for elected officials on both sides of the aisle to make the right choice by putting individual and family protections first.

Protecting Those Who Are Their Family’s First Line of Defense

Congress has a basic obligation to support these most responsible members of our community and ensure they can protect themselves and their families, no matter where they are traveling.

Reducing Crime With More Responsible Protectors

According to data from the Crime Prevention Research Center, the number of concealed carry handgun permits has surged by 34% since 2016, with the current number of permits at over 19.5 million; At the same time, violent crime has gone down for three consecutive years. NOW is the time for national concealed carry reciprocity.

Prioritizing Constitutional Rights While Protecting States’ Rights

Americans’ Constitutional and natural born right to protect does not disappear when they cross state lines. The current patchwork of state and local laws can confuse even the most conscientious CCW holder and puts them at risk of breaking the law.
