Stutzman proposes concealed weapon law
A congressman from northeastern Indiana has proposed a law that would allow people who legally carry a concealed weapon in their home state to also do so any other state that allows concealed weapons.
U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman says the proposed measure would eliminate confusion among law enforcement and gun owners about which states have agreements about concealed carry laws. He also says the right to self-defense is the cornerstone of the Second Amendment.
He says the law would ensure that if you're legally carrying a concealed firearm in one state, you can do it in another. He says the bill would not force states that prohibit concealed carry to change their laws.
