Rep. Thomas Massie, (R-KY) has introduced HR 2909 – DC Personal Protection Reciprocity Act. If passed, the bill would allow anyone with a valid concealed carry permit in their home state to legally carry their concealed weapons in the District of Columbia. Massie, Chair of the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus, says the right to self-protection in DC should not be just for politicians, but for every American citizen.
Congressman Thomas Massie, R-Ky, chairman of the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus, has introduced H.R 2909, the D.C Personal Protection Reciprocity Act. This legislation would allow individuals with a valid concealed carry permit issued from their home state to carry their firearms in the District of Columbia.
After the horrific shooting at the Republican congressional baseball practice, there will likely be calls for special privileges to protect politicians. Our reaction should instead be to protect the right of all citizens guaranteed in the Constitution: The right to self-defense.
I do not want to extend a special privilege to politicians, because the right to keep and bear arms is not a privilege, it is a God-given right protected by our Constitution…
While a DC reciprocity bill may be a good idea, what’s wrong with passing a national reciprocity bill for concealed carry permit holders? If every American has the constitutional right to self-protection, then they should be able to protect themselves anywhere in the United States, not just their home state. Families on vacation or a business person travelling on business, should have the right to self-defense, not matter where they go.
