Seems they need about 87,000 signatures within two weeks to even get to The President's desk . . . . . That is going to be a tough nut to get done. We'll see.

 

But, we'll never know if we don't try.

A disgrace if this doesn't reach 100,000 signatures.
We need more social media. Every gun forum should have this link!

Just checked on this petition. Seems stalled at 21k. Oh well, this turned out to be a dud. I really don't have any hope of reciprocity getting enough grass roots support to move forward under this term of Trump. As he has said on other things "bring it to me and I will sign it". It isn't going to get to his desk. Matter of fact, a lot of things aren't going to get to his desk.

This bill was expected after the Trump victory to be signed at the end of August or in September. None of the firearms forums or pro Gun lobbies seem to care about having this become Federal Law.

According to this article, the house is going to take up national reciprocity in September.



Dear Rich:

This week, our research was discussed on ABC's “The View”, Fox News' “The Five”, and “Fox & Friends”. The Washington Post and Foxnews.com have run news stories on our research. The Chicago Tribune published our op-ed on how Democrats pass laws making gun ownership too expensive for poor people. Other op-eds appeared at The Hill and Fox News. We also appeared on Fox Business and on Turkish Worldwide Television. See the links below

As if all that weren’t enough, our crimeresearch.org website now exceeds NRA.org and Bloomberg's Everytown.org in web traffic. While the CPRC’s website ranks at 16,542, the NRA’s is 20,279 and Everytown’s isn’t even close at 73,973. Pretty amazing.

In mid-September, the US House Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on a concealed handgun reciprocity bill which will make concealed carry permits valid across state lines (like driver’s licenses). Most states already accept out-of-state concealed handgun permits, but eight heavily Democratic states do not. If reciprocity becomes law, people in those states will quickly learn how unjustified their fears of permit holders are.

While the House of Representatives seems destined to pass reciprocity, two or three Democratic Senators will need to be swayed if we are to overcome the promised Democratic filibuster.

I need your help. We need to raise money for public relations so that we can keep educating others. And we still need to do some more research.

— Gun control organizations are using new research by John Donohue, a Stanford law professor, to claim that right-to-carry laws increase the number of aggravated assaults (and thus violent crime in general). The debate up to this point has been over complex statistical issues, but there is also a simple way of responding to the claim in one or two simple sentences. Donohue’s assumption is that permit holders are committing these crimes, but we are looking at the actual data on aggravated assaults by permit holders in each state. I have already collected this data for some states, but we need it for the others so that we can assuage the fears of concerned voters and politicians.

The other claim is that guns are being stolen from permit holders’ cars and then used to commit crimes. Donohue's supposed anecdotes were in fact simply made up, but I would like to have some solid data on this issue. We have just begun collecting data.

— The Violence Policy Center has claimed that 230 permit holders have been convicted of murder in the past 10 years. From the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal, the media keeps using the VPC reports. But some of those 230 cases didn’t even involve permit holders. And I have shown that in a few states, the VPC double, triple, or even quadruple-counted certain cases. Furthermore, news stories aren't always reliable. To come up with a more accurate number, the VPC would need to do FOIA requests and contact defense attorneys.

I have an idea for research that I think will make a real difference in the reciprocity debate. However, I don't want to publicly reveal this yet.

My best guess is that I could accomplish all of this for about $30,000. At this late date, some of the research won’t be completed until the Senate has already started to take up the reciprocity issue. However, whatever funding we get will determine how much of this we get done before debate really begins. With a Republican House and Senate, as well as a President who strongly supports this legislation, we have a unique chance to quickly do some really useful research.

If Trump can get a solid conservative judge nominated this fall, this should allow the possibility for SCOTUS to take on any new gun cases.

Wouldn't it be easier for all the regional NRA leadership to convince the national leadership to "petition" the Prez that it's in his best 2020 re election interest to just make reciprocity and for that matter constitutional carry the law of the land?
