Gun owners across the United States breathed a deep sigh of relief Tuesday night when President-elect Donald Trump defeated vociferously anti-gun Democrat Hillary Clinton for the presidency.
Of course, the fact that the Supreme Court will almost certainly shift in a more conservative and constitutional direction gave supporters of the Second Amendment cause for relief, but news that gun rights could actually begin expanding in a positive direction also brought some joy.
At the top of the list of potential pro-gun moves that could be seen under the upcoming Trump administration was the implementation of a national reciprocity law for licensed concealed carriers across the country, according to Breitbart.
Legislation compelling states to recognize concealed carry permits from all other states already awaited action in Congress. It would not be difficult for the Republican-controlled House and Senate to pass the bill and send it along to the White House for President Trump’s signature.
Trump would most assuredly sign a bill recognizing national reciprocity, as it was one of his top priorities as laid out in his campaign’s policy proposals on strengthening and protecting gun rights.
“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,” Trump’s policy paper stated.
“A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. 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,” he added.
This is fantastic news for concealed carriers, gun owners, and every Second Amendment supporter who has been striving to see his rights fully recognized and protected by the government instead of left to the whims of individual states and jurisdictions with differing sets of rules and standards.
