Ryan and McConnell make up the real swamp. They both need to go.
National reciprocity for concealed carry hinges on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) the day after conservatives overcame Speaker Paul Ryan’s months of stonewalling.
Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) introduced national reciprocity on January 3 and Ryan ignored it for approximately 47 weeks. Breitbart News began reporting a tally as the bill languished, beginning with week 42.
But national reciprocity passed on December 6 by a vote of 231 to 198, now the onus is now on McConnell. He is a Senator for one of the most pro-gun states in the Union, Kentucky, and the Majority Leader for a nation wherein “73 percent” of Americans support national reciprocity.
So what will McConnell do?
In mid-August Breitbart News reported that McConnell was mum on national reciprocity. At that point, he was sharing in Speaker Ryan’s silence on the subject, saying nothing positive or negative about the American people’s opportunity to actually protect their right to self-defense by rolling back Second Amendment infringements on the right to bear arms. The time for silence has passed.
