Daines Introduces Bill to Protect Montanans’ Second Amendment Rights

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today introduced a bill to protect Montanans’ right to conceal carry firearms across state lines. 

“The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed under our Constitution—no state should be able to take that right away. My bill would ensure that every state honors Montanans’ right to self defense and the Second Amendment through concealed carry reciprocity,” Daines said. 

Daines’ “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act” would allow for those who live in a concealed carry or Constitutional carry state to carry in other states.

“Senator Daines' Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is a critical piece of legislation that will empower gun owners with concealed carry licenses or who live in Constitutional Carry states to defend themselves outside their home, regardless of state borders or their magazine and ammunition restrictions. Gun Owners of America is proud to see pro-Second Amendment leaders like Sen. Daines step up and push for Concealed Carry Reciprocity while the rest of the Washington Swamp celebrates the passage of new unconstitutional infringements,” Aidan Johnston, GOA's Director of Federal Affairs said.
