Rep Jim Jordan is standing up for gun owners..

Daily CallerOhio Rep. Jim Jordan says that the House will vote down any legislation on expanding federal background checks for gun purchases if it does not include provisions guaranteeing concealed carry reciprocity.

Thanks, Jim, for standing up for the right thing. The gun control side should get nothing for free. That said...

Daily CallerJordan told Politico’s Rachael Bade that passing a new bill without a reciprocity clause — including the current version of the bill being pushed in the Senate by John Cornyn — “would allow bureaucrats and administrators to take away an individual’s Second Amendment liberties, and something that fundamental you’ve got to have a court make that decision to give due process to American citizens.”

... you can't fix that problem by adding concealed carry reciprocity. We don't compromise away fundamental rights. You need to fix the background check legislation too. Americans have a second amendment right to own guns, and a separate right to due process before a court can limit their ownership of guns. Yes, we need to make sure people who belong on the NICS list get added. We also need to make sure we ONLY add people to that list after a due process hearing, including the chance to defend yourself in court with proper notice that your gun ownership rights are on the line.

This shouldn't be that hard, but apparently it is.
