Wyoming’s lone congresswoman, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, is one of a group of lawmakers sponsoring the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill would ensure that a valid concealed-carry permit issued in one state would be recognized in other states, allowing gun owners with permits to travel and carry freely without worrying about whether their permit will be honored.

“For too long, a patchwork of restrictive, confusing and constitutionally-suspect laws have restricted the rights of law-abiding firearm owners as they travel from state to state,” Cheney said in a statement.

“I’m proud to cosponsor the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act because it would guarantee protections for Second Amendment rights across state lines,” Cheney added.

The legislation would also ease restrictions on carrying firearms on federal lands including national parks and wildlife refuges, per the statement.

“This legislation will help protect our individual constitutional right to keep and bear arms by ensuring that law-abiding citizens with concealed carry permits will enjoy reciprocity in other states,” Cheney said.
