Gun groups launch new push for concealed-carry legislation

Gun groups launch new push for concealed-carry legislation – Gun rights groups are gearing up for a major push to move concealed-carry legislation through the new Republican Congress. The National Rifle Association (NRA) and other Second Amendment advocates are throwing their weight behind the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, a bill introduced in both chambers of Congress that would allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons across state lines. “The Second Amendment doesn’t end at the border of your state,” said Larry Keane, general counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. “This would enhance the rights of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves when they’re away from home.”
