National Reciprocity, Reloading, and more - This Week on Gun Talk Radio
Mandeville, LA – It’s national reciprocity legislation, reloading and custom scopes, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk (R) Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
The need for national reciprocity -- for all states to honor carry permits issued by any state -- has been on the front pages recently as a nursing student and a former Marine both faced felony charges in New York City after trying to check their firearms at the Empire State Building and the 911 Memorial. Both had permits allowing legal carry in their states, and tried to be responsible by checking the firearms with law enforcement officers. Unfortunately, both were arrested for violating New York's Draconian laws, and faced a minimum sentence of more than three years in prison. Only because of the public furor at this injustice were they both able to reach deals allowing them to avoid prison time.
Senators David Vitter (R-LA) and John Thune (R-SD) have introduced S. 2213, a bill which would allow citizens with carry permits, and those from states with Constitutional Carry (no permit needed), to carry in all states. Sen. Vitter joins Tom this Sunday to discuss the bill.
