The NRA and its nearly 5 million members are supporting a national conceal and carry bill that was introduced by in the United States House of Representatives last month.

H.R.38I will allow a qualified person to carry or possess a concealed handgun in all states.

A qualified person must be eligible to receive a firearm under federal law, carry a valid photo identification document and carry a valid concealed carry permit, issued in their state of residence.

Supporters say it’s time to allow law abiding citizens the opportunity to protect themselves when they are traveling.
