Rep. Johnson Votes to Protect Second Amendment
Washington, D.C. – Late Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee passed H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, out of committee. This bill amends the federal criminal code to allow an individual with a concealed carry permit in one state to carry a firearm in another concealed carry state, so long as the individual adheres to the laws of that state. Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-04) is a cosponsor.
Johnson released the following statement:
“The constitutional right to keep and bear arms should not be confined by state lines. Our legislation ensures that law-abiding citizens who obtain a concealed carry permit are not denied their rights when traveling to other states. I am a concealed carry permit holder myself and will continue to support measures in Congress that preserve the Second Amendment.”
