NRA warns that national reciprocity is not a given

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox warns that a tough fight still lies ahead for national reciprocity and other NRA goals.

“It’s going to be a hard fight,” Cox said in an NRATV video yesterday. “But if we engage our fellow Americans, we engage our fellow Second Amendment supporters, we explain what’s at stake, we explain what it does and what it doesn’t do, which is often times important, tell them to ignore the national news media, tell them to tune in to NRATV, tell them to go to our websites and learn about these issues, if we keep the pressure on the United States senate, we have a real opportunity.”

Cox’s comments come after 59 Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives put forth a proposal last week that would allow gun owners with valid permits to carry a concealed handgun in any state.

Referring to the proposal, Cox warns that “we still have to get to 60 votes due to the filibuster rules in the Senate,” a task that may prove to be difficult with Democrat senators are already promising to block any form of the bill.
