Donald Trump: I’ll Sign National Reciprocity if It Reaches My Desk

H/T Breitbart.

As long as the DemocRats run the House there will never be a National Reciprocity Legislation to put on President Trump’s desk.

During an interview with the NRA’s 1st Freedom, President Donald Trump said he would sign national reciprocity legislation for concealed carry if it reaches his desk.

The outlet posed the question:

Mr. President, each state’s driver’s license is honored across this great nation, yet a permit to carry a concealed gun — which, in contrast, is a right specifically protected in the U.S. Bill of Rights — is often not respected by other states. Will you support a national reciprocity act so that law-abiding gun owners can more easily travel with their freedom?

Trump responded by making sure the focus was on concealed carry permit holders crossing state lines, to which 1st Freedom said, “Yes.”

Trump then said, “I will support such legislation. If it comes across my desk I will sign it.”

This is the same position Trump promoted while seeking the Republican nomination for the presidency in September 2015.

On September 18, 2015, Breitbart News reported a Trump position paper wherein he voiced his support for national reciprocity, saying “The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states.”

“A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state,” the paper read. “If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.”

  1. I’m hoping the President has Huge coattails and that we take back the House. I curse Paul Ryan, and John Baynor , both were useless. and did nothing for the American people. I have higher hope for Kevin McCarthy when he becomes Speaker.
