Concealed carry permits should work across state lines

I have cosponsored the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. Law abiding citizens have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and that right shouldn't end at state borders. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would ensure that individuals who lawfully obtain concealed carry permits in their home states can exercise their Second Amendment rights when visiting other states.

Founding Fathers got it right on the Second Amendment

Second Amendment: I believe our Founding Fathers got it right the first time. The constitutional right to bear arms is essential to our country's core principles. I have and will continue to oppose any federal legislation that inhibits or attacks this freedom.
