Terrorist Threat Demands National CCW Reciprocity, says Gun Law Expert Washington, DC Tuesday, February 23, 2010
"The current terrorist threat demands that Congress enact legislation establishing national recognition for the carrying of concealed firearms," says gun rights expert John M. Snyder.
Noting that government intelligence experts indicate another attempted terrorist attack within the United States in three to six months is "certain," Snyder said, "Americans with state-issued permits to carry concealed firearms in a state should be able to carry them throughout the country. This is necessary for personal and public protection.
"Earlier this month, a Capitol Hill newspaper reported that Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) is prepared to offer a national ccw reciprocity proposal as an amendment to pending legislation. Such an initiative would be in the public interest. Americans who value the right to keep and bear arms and all citizens who value freedom most assuredly would support this move"
A former National Rifle Association editor, Snyder is public affairs director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and treasurer of the Second Amendment Foundation.
