WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Phil Roe, M.D. (TN-01) issued the following statement in support of H.R. 822: Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act:

“I am a strong advocate for the Second Amendment and the constitutional right to bear arms. I am committed to safeguarding the rights of law-abiding American citizens, and I will be a consistent voice for the Second Amendment and fight attempts to weaken those rights that are granted in the Constitution.

“As a cosponsor of the Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act, I believe the right to bear arms does not stop at the state line. The bill allows law-abiding citizens who are permitted to carry a concealed weapon in one state to carry that weapon in another state, subject to his or her permitted state’s restrictions. This common sense legislation will ensure the right is unimpeded by different state governments.”
