Time for Congress to Stop Messing Around and Pass the Bill!
The concealed carry reciprocity bill (H.R. 38) has just reached 200 backers in Congress.
With 199 cosponsors, plus chief sponsor Richard Hudson (R-NC), support for the bill has reached an almost unprecedented level of support.
GOA will continue working to get more cosponsors. And we will continue to encourage current sponsors of the bill to lobby their fellow Representatives to join them in cosponsoring H.R. 38.
It is almost certain to us that we -- today -- have the 218 votes (out of 435) we need in order to pass H.R. 38 in the House.
In the Senate, we believe we're close to the 60 votes we need to break a filibuster.
Bottom line: There is no reason that we should wait to move this legislation through the House.
If H.R. 38 doesn't move until then, it will be clear to us that Paul Ryan has no serious interest in passing this legislation.
We want the bill to move quickly … sooner than later.
In GOA’s Legislative Action Center, there are two email responses:
* For those who have already cosponsored H.R. 38, the letter thanks them and urges them to speak to their fellow congressmen about the bill -- urging them to cosponsor the bill as well.
* For those who have NOT cosponsored H.R. 38, the letter reminds them the bill is a huge priority for the gun rights community, which often puts the Second Amendment first at election time.
When you take action here, the GOA action center will automatically select the correct letter.
So please urge your congressman to join others in doing their part to get an immediate vote on H.R. 38 -- without any anti-gun amendments.
