U.S. Concealed Carry Association Applauds Lawmakers for Moving Concealed Carry Reciprocity Legislation Forward in the House of Representatives
“Law-abiding citizens should have the right to defend themselves and their families at all times.”
November 29th, 2017
West Bend, WI – Following the House Judiciary Committee’s markup of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (H.R. 38) today, Tim Schmidt, the Founder and President of the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) made the following statement:
“The United States Concealed Carry Association applauds the work of Congressman Richard Hudson and all those who have been a part of this legislation, which will make it simpler for Americans to legally carry a gun across state lines,” said Tim Schmidt, Founder and President of the United States Concealed Carry Association. “There are additional steps Congress can and should take to ensure a safer America and that begins with finally passing national concealed carry reciprocity legislation. Law-abiding citizens should have the right to defend themselves and their families at all times from killers who do not follow our laws. We urge the full House of Representatives to vote on this important legislation as soon as possible.”
USCCA has been urging legislators to follow through on their promise to pass national concealed carry reciprocity, which would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be considered valid in the other 49 states. U.S. Senator John Cornyn introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act through S.446 earlier this year and Congressman Richard Hudson did the same through the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 in H.R.446. Both bills would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be respected in them all.
The U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) provides self-defense education, training and legal protection to responsible American gun owners. Headquartered in West Bend, WI, the USCCA is the largest and fastest-growing association whose sole focus is the responsibly armed American.
