Daniel Webster, the director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, has written a terrific op-ed in The Hill on the subject of the NRA’s “National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.”
This dangerous legislation, H.R. 38, would force states to allow individuals from other states to carry concealed guns on their streets. This includes individuals from both “Shall-Issue” states as well as the 12 states that require no permit at all to carry concealed. Furthermore, H.R. 38 makes verification of permits from 49 other states impossible for law enforcement.
Webster makes a persuasive argument as to why the expansion of permissive concealed carry regimens would be a disaster for public safety.
He shares new polling data from the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research that shows Americans support stronger safety standards for concealed carry by wide margins, regardless of political affiliation or gun ownership.
Webster also highlights new research that links permissive concealed carry laws to high violent crime (and murder) rates.
