New Co-Sponsors For HR 822- National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity (updated)

HR 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011, just went from one co-sponsor – Rep. Heath Shuler (D-NC-11) to 43 co-sponsors. The new co-sponsors represent a cross-section of the country including anti-gun states such as New York and California. I see more than a handful of Democrats have signed on to the bill as well.

If your Congressman is not a co-sponsor and he or she represents that he or she is “a friend of the Second Amendment”, then ask them why they aren’t a co-sponsor. I’d love to see the number of co-sponsors exclipse that of HR 308 in short order.

The co-sponsors added on March 2nd and 3rd.

UPDATE: The number of co-sponsors has now jumped to 57 with the addition of 14 more co-sponsors yesterday. From my perspective, it is interesting to note that all three NRA-rated Democrats from North Carolina are now on board with this bill.

Again, if your Representative is not on either of these lists and they call themselves “pro-gun”, you need to start asking them why they haven’t signed up as a co-sponsor.
