Weld doesn’t seem to know what reciprocity is
Libertarian VP nominee Bill Weld doesn’t seem to know what concealed carry permit reciprocity is
Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, the Libertarian vice presidential nominee, didn’t seem to know what concealed carry permit reciprocity was during an interview Monday with TheBlaze’s Dana Loesch.
While he said he supports the Second Amendment because “the history of people who have surrendered their weapons to the government is not a pretty history” and appeared to indicate he is in favor of Constitutional — or permit-less — carry, his knowledge of the issue did not seem to run very deep.
Their conversation went like this:
Loesch: Do you believe in reciprocity?
Loesch: Meaning, if I have my concealed carry [permit] in Texas, would I be able to — because I have my concealed carry [permit] in Texas — would each of the states recognize it?
Weld: I don’t know. We don’t have concealed carry up in New England, so I’d wanna look at that.
Over the past several weeks, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, Weld’s running mate, has made a few gaffes of his own.
