Cole Praises Passage of Right-to-Carry Act

Congressman Tom Cole today praised the House for passing H.R. 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act, which allows law-abiding gun owners with valid state-issued concealed firearm permits or licenses to carry a concealed firearm in any other state that also allows concealed carry.

Said Cole: "This legislation will help ensure that Americans' Second Amendment rights are respected across state lines. Just as a driver's license is valid in other states, concealed carry permits should also be honored. Oklahomans should have the same right to protect ourselves in other concealed-carry states as we have at home."
