Democrats Block Hudson’s Concealed Carry Reciprocity Amendment
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement after House Democrats blocked his Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (H.R. 38) he offered as an amendment to H.R. 8, a bill the House is considering this week:
“I’m extremely disappointed Democrats won’t even entertain a discussion on the House floor about concealed carry reciprocity – my common sense, bipartisan bill that already passed the House last Congress,” said Rep. Hudson. “It’s a shame that in their rush to just get something – anything – done, Democrats have made this a partisan show. Instead of talking about solutions that could actually reduce gun violence, they’re moving a bill that would not have stopped recent mass violence – like what we saw in Parkland, at Sandy Hook Elementary, in Sutherland Springs or in Las Vegas. I stand ready to work with anyone on bipartisan solutions to end gun violence while protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens – and I reject the false dilemma that we can't do both.”
Today, at the House Triangle on the east side of the U.S. Capitol at 12:30 PM, Rep. Hudson will join House Republicans and Second Amendment supporters for a press conference to oppose H.R. 8 and H.R. 1112.
