NRA renews push for U.S.-wide concealed carry

INDIANAPOLIS - The National Rifle Association's annual meeting is bringing a renewed push for a law requiring all 50 states to recognize concealed carry gun permits from other states.

The issue of reciprocity is a top priority as 70,000 NRA members convene in Indianapolis this week.

The convention also will focus on politics as the organization maps out its strategy for this year's mid-term elections and 2016.

A leadership forum Friday will feature Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Indiana Governor Mike Pence and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. All have been mentioned as possible GOP contenders for the White House in 2016.

This is the first year the organization has met in Indianapolis.
