Foxx Supports Second Amendment

WASHINGTON – Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., voted in favor of H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 which allows qualified individuals with a concealed weapons permit to carry or possess a concealed handgun in other states that allow concealed firearms. Representative Foxx released the following statement in support of the measure:

“When the Founding Fathers penned the Second Amendment, the right of people to keep and bear arms was intended to empower individualsa principle that has been solidified by recent Supreme Court decisions. As a lifelong defender of the Constitution, I was pleased to support the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which rightly protects Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding Americans and their right to defend themselves on the road as well as at home. Responsible gun-owners who hold a concealed carry permit from their state’s jurisdiction should be empowered to travel to other states that allow concealed firearms without fear of prosecution – and this bill accomplishes exactly that.”
