Woodall, House Clear Legislation Promoting Second Amendment

Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 38, the “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act,” to enable those properly authorized to carry a concealed firearm in their state to also carry that concealed firearm in any state that offers concealed carry privileges. The measure reaffirms the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, while satisfying the concerns of many conservative Members of Congress that it could supersede or limit the Tenth Amendment rights of any state to permit private persons or entities to prohibit or restrict the possession of concealed firearms on their property. U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall (GA 07), who is among those conservatives who have that concern, supported the bill, and applauded its protections of both the Second and Tenth Amendments to the Constitution.
