Although national reciprocity legislation was introduced in early January, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) are mum on the issue.
Their silence ignores the fact that Trump was elected by voters who had very specific desires, one of which was national reciprocity. Despite this, Ryan and McConnell are offering up no public show of support for concealed carry legislation and have not rallied behind the sponsors of national reciprocity in the House and Senate.

On January 3, 2017, Breitbart News reported that Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) introduced national reciprocity. His bill “would allow people with a state-issued concealed carry license or permit to conceal a handgun in any other state that allows concealed carry, as long as the permit holder follows the laws of that state.” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced companion legislation in the Senate. Both bills perfectly reflect President Trump’s stated desire that a concealed carry permit be treated like a driver’s license.

On September 18, 2015, Breitbart News reported Trump saying:

The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.

Moreover, national reciprocity is important because it would literally (immediately) knock down numerous state and local gun controls in places like California, Illinois, and New York. By so doing, national reciprocity would recover freedoms that Democrats took from Americans decades ago.

At this point in time, Republicans not only control the House, Senate, and White House, but also have the benefit of red state Democrats who will have to support pro-gun legislation to solidify their 2018 re-election chances. These red state Democrats give national reciprocity a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, yet McConnell and Ryan are mute on the issue.

This opportunity from progress is being willfully thrown in the garbage. People are arguing about symbolic bullshit like statues instead of something that actually matters. Like uncontrollable, superstitious primitives these people howl over life sized figurines. They would rather practice idolatry than have some of their freedom returned to them. Larping yourself to a bangin instagram account outweighs all other concerns. I prefer the cosplayers at Comiket 92 (just recently wrapped up https://www.sankakucomplex.com/2017/08/16/comiket-92-cosplay-sheer-gold/ inb4 shitkaku
In a few months it will be 2018 and radical weapons legislation will be "too controversial for an election year" and that will be the end of the opportunity. This after little to no progress during 8 years of the Bush administration.
Its starting off to be a really shitty century, I tell you what
