Jerry Henry: the Importance of National Reciprocity

December 7, 2017 10:44 am

Today, way too many people, in my opinion, are too frivolous with not only their God-given rights but those enumerated in the Constitution as well.

These rights represent the very essence of life in the United States and without these rights or the free exercise thereof, we become no better off than any other country on Earth.  None of the enumerated rights in the Constitution are more important than those enumerated in the Second Amendment, i.e., the right to keep and bear arms.

The Second Amendment was written into the Constitution’s Bill of Rights in order for the citizens of the United States to have the ability to ward off all enemies, both foreign and domestic, including those of an overbearing government.  Included is the ability to protect ourselves and our families from those wishing to harm us.  And, the exercise of these rights should be available to citizens no matter where we travel throughout this great country.  However, such is not the case in today’s world.

Today, unless you live in a particular state that has signed reciprocity agreements with other states, your right to defend yourself and/or your family may end at the state line.  Let that sink in.  When you cross a state line, you may lose your right to self-protection.  States such as California, Delaware, and New York offer no reciprocity with any other state, leaving all nonresidents defenseless as soon as they cross over that imaginary state line.  No other right is treated with such disdain.
