HR 822 – National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity Hits 100

Only last week, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy was issuing press releases trumpeting that her magazine ban bill, HR 308, had hit 100 co-sponsors “with more on the way.” There were quotes from all the gun prohibitionists congratulating her and saying what an important bill it was. It reminded people of “her unique perspective” and tried to reinforce her victimhood. (See my comments at the bottom of this post about not moving on.)

Yesterday, Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) bill – National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011 – hit 100 co-sponsors. It was introduced on Feb. 18th which was exactly one month after McCarthy introduced HR 308. It has added co-sponsors at a much quicker rate and, unlike HR 308, is genuinely bi-partisan. In the past week alone, it has added 17 co-sponsors.

Rep. Stearns is a more modest person than Mrs. McCarthy. He has not used the milestone of 100 co-sponsors as an event that requires press releases and media events. Since he hasn’t publicized this milestone, I will.

The 100 Congressmen and Congresswomen who have stood up for your Second Amendment rights are listed below. As I have said many times, if your representative isn’t listed and they say they are pro-gun, it is time to call them and ask why they aren’t a co-sponsor.
