WASHINGTON—Today the House passed H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would allow individuals who are lawfully permitted to carry a concealed firearm in their home states to carry concealed firearms in other states that allow the practice. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) is a cosponsor of this legislation and managed the rule debate for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act on the floor.

As a member of Congress, I have a duty to uphold American liberties—including the right to bear arms—for current and future generations. I cosponsored the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act because I believe the Second Amendment doesn't end at state borders.

"Our forefathers didn't cement our right to defend ourselves and our families as a philosophical exercisethey were protecting freedoms that they recognized as essential elements of our democracy. The Second Amendment will always be one of those foundational liberties, and today's vote affirms that,” said Collins.
