The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. Several members of the Alabama Congressional delegation shared their opinions on the bill with the Alabama Political Reporter.
U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, said in a statement that this bill aims to protect the Second Amendment right to bear arms by ensuring that individuals qualified to carry a concealed handgun in their home state can also carry a firearm across state lines. Brooks is an original cosponsor of the act, which passed the House by a vote of 231-198.
