On April 28 Donald Trump became the first president to address the NRA’s annual Leadership Forum since Ronald Reagan. There wasn’t a lot of gun policy talk in the speech, but Trump’s campaign made note of one particular issue that America needs to address: the reciprocity of concealed carry permits. In a campaign document Trump stated:
NATIONAL RIGHT TO CARRY. The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.
Trump renewed his pledge to always stand by the members of the NRA. Pushing for right to carry reform would be the best way forward.
