Concealed Carry Reciprocity passes House on Senate
January 2, 2018
The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 passed in the House of Representatives and is now on its way to the Senate.

“The NRA’s Guns Everywhere bill will mean more gun violence and more gun deaths,” said GAG member Brigid McGinn. “Federal reciprocity is a direct violation of an individual state’s rights to constitutionally protect its citizens. This is a legislated tragedy waiting to happen."
Founded in June 2016 after a mass shooting in the LGBTQ nightclub, Pulse, in Orlando that left 49 people dead, GAG believes that gun violence is a public health issue that disproportionately affects people of color, religious minorities, and LGBTQ Americans.
