House Judiciary Committee Schedules Hearings On HR 822

The House Judiciary Committee has finally scheduled hearings on HR 822 - the National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011.

Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security

10:00 a.m. in the 2141 Rayburn House Office Building

Hearing on: H.R. 822, the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011"

By Direction of the Chairman
The bill introduced in February by Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Rep. Heath Shuler (D-NC) has 242 co-sponsors. The text of the bill and more info can be found here.

The recent campaign by the NRA-ILA to get people to call their Congressman seems to have had an impact. The bill has languished for months now without a hearing. This could also mean there is enough support in the Senate to get it passed this time. If so, it will be interesting to see what will happen if it gets to the President's desk.
