Daines Fights to Protect Montanans’ Second Amendment Rights

Joined colleagues in support of Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today joined his colleagues in supporting the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, to allow individuals with concealed carry privileges in their home state to exercise those rights in other states that also have concealed carry laws, while abiding by the respective state’s laws. 

“As a concealed carry permit holder myself, I will always fight to protect Montanans’ Second Amendment rights,” Daines said. “This bill is commonsense – it simply allows Montanans to exercise their constitutional freedoms while traveling across state lines.”

The legislation is sponsored by U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and cosponsored by U.S. Senators John Barrasso (R-WY), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Mike Braun (R-IN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Hoeven (R-ND), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Ron Johnson (R-WI), John Kennedy (R-LA), Jerry Moran (R-KS), David Perdue (R-GA), Rob Portman (R-OH), Jim Risch (R-ID), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Richard Shelby (R-AL), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), John Thune (R-SD), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Roger Wicker (R-MS).
