Urge Your Representative to Cosponsor HR 923
There are nine Representatives from Virginia who have NOT cosponsored the BEST concealed carry bill in Congress.
HR 923 will protect your right to carry concealed firearms out-of-state, without forcing people to first get a permit.
This is important because 11 states already have Constitutional Concealed Carry -- and legislation has been introduced in Richmond to make Virginia the 12th State.
Constitutional Carry is what the Founders intended. The Second Amendment says the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed.”
Well, Constitutional Carry enables law-abiding citizens to carry without getting a permit or without being registered like sex offenders.
And Virginia already has a version of Constitutional Carry when it comes to Open Carry. So really, Virginia is half-way there.
This is why it’s important for Representatives to get it right when it comes to reciprocity legislation -- something they have authority to do because of Sec. 5 in the 14th Amendment.
Sadly, ONLY TWO Virginia Representatives have cosponsored HR 923. They are Reps. Dave Brat (R-7) and Scott Rigell (R-2).
All the other Representatives from Virginia -- the ones listed below -- have, so far, refused to consponsor the PRO-GUN Constitutional reciprocity bill (HR 923). They are:
Rob Wittman (R-1) 202-225-4261
Bobby Scott (D-3) 202-225-8351
Randy Forbes (R-4) 202-225-6365
Robert Hurt (R-5) 202-225-4711
Bob Goodlatte (R-6)* 202-225-5431
Don Beyer (D-8) 202-225-4376
Morgan Griffith (R-9) 202-225-3861
Barbara Comstock (R-10) 202-225-5136
Gerry Connolly (D-11) 202-225-1492

Some of the Representatives listed above may try to tell you they have cosponsored other reciprocity bills, but these other bills do not protect Constitutional Carry. And, they force gun owners to first get registered before they can exercise a God-given right that is protected by the Second Amendment.
Again, HR 923 does NOT require a concealed carry permit for citizens living in Constitutional Carry states. Permitless carry is sweeping the nation -- and may soon come to Virginia.
Given that this will happen in the future, let’s make sure that HR 923 is law, so that all law-abiding citizens in the Old Dominion will be able to carry out-of-state without infringements!
Please call your Representative and urge him or her to cosponsor HR 923.
