An Open Letter to Congressman Phil Gingrey
Congressman Phil Gingrey, MD
119 Cannon House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Congressman Gingrey:
I know you support the right to keep and bear arms guaranteed in the Second Amendment. Currently, the consistent exercise of this right for lawful self defense is hindered by a patchwork of state laws governing the issuance of concealed carry permits. While my Georgia Concealed Weapons License is recognized and honored by 24 other states, there are many who do not honor it, because of differences in the ways the laws are written in those states.
I am writing you to urge you to vote YES on HR822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act, which comes before the House for a vote in the next couple of days. This bill would level the playing field for the licensed concealed carry of firearms, by mandating that all states which issue such licenses honor licenses from all other states, in much the same way as states honor each drivers’ licenses from other states. This bill will go a long way to helping keep travelers and visitors safe.
Thank you for your attention to this important bill.
PLEASE write or call your Congressman today and urge them to support HR822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act.
