Portman Cosponsors Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) has signed on as an original cosponsor of the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014, legislation introduced by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) which would allow individuals with concealed carry privileges in their home state to exercise those rights in any other state that also has concealed carry laws. The legislation is also cosponsored by U.S. Sens. Thune (R-SD), Vitter (R-LA), Graham (R-SC), Boozman (R-AR), Inhofe (R-OK), Crapo (R-ID), Burr (R-NC), Cochran (R-MS), Johanns (R-NE), Enzi (R-WY), Moran (R-KS), and Roberts (R-KS).

"I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment and remain committed to protecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners. This bill will allow the nearly 250,000 Ohioans with concealed carry privileges to exercise that privilege in other states that allow concealed carry."

The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014 would treat state-issued concealed-carry permits like drivers' licenses, allowing law-abiding citizens with concealed carry privileges to concealed-carry in any other states that also permit it by law.
