In the video below, anti-national concealed carry reciprocity Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro declares “I take my responsibility to protect people’s Second Amendment rights very very seriously.” And immediately adds “I also take very seriously public safety. This federal bill undermines both.” Wait. What? I mean . . .
I understand the [entirely meritless] argument that national concealed reciprocity degrades public safety — out-of-staters with hidden, loaded guns roaming Times Square! But how does allowing people to keep and bear arms in all 50 United States degrade the Second Amendment?
Answer: it doesn’t. It does the exact opposite. It partially restores the “shall not be infringed” law of the land.
What do you say to people like Shapiro who claim to support the Second Amendment but don’t? Do you shake your head and leave them be or argue the point? And are these false supporters worse than those who admit they want civilian disarmament?
