NO To The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Senator John Cornyn has introduced bipartisan gun-control legislation to strengthen the background check system, called the Fix NICS Act, and recently called on Congress to hold hearings on preventing future gun violence.  As a gun violence issues voter, I applaud these efforts.

However, Cornyn continues to support legislation that would make it easier to purchase gun silencers, called the SHARE Act/Hearing Protection Act.  He also authored the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill, which would weaken concealed carry laws across the nation.

Senator Cornyn maintains that his support of the NRA-backed bills would not be in conflict with his attempt to pass common sense gun legislation.  I emphatically disagree.  We need elected leaders who will unequivocally support legislation that will keep us safe from gun violence.  In his continued support of deregulation of firearms, Cornyn shows us that he is not that leader.
