Graham Supports 'Right to Carry' Reciprocity Amendment

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today said he will support an amendment offered by Senator John Thune (R-South Dakota) providing reciprocity to concealed carry permit holders in South Carolina and across the country.

The Thune amendment would allow an individual who has met the requirements for a carry permit, or who is otherwise allowed by their home state's law to carry a firearm, to carry a firearm for protection in any other state that issues such permits.

Graham noted that a concealed carry holder in South Carolina would be allowed to carry their firearm into neighboring states such as North Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. When in those states, a South Carolinian would be subject to those states laws governing concealed weapons.

"Personal protection should not end at a state line," said Graham. "The Thune amendment protects and enhances the Second Amendment rights of Americans who carry and responsibly own a weapon. I look forward to voting for its passage and encourage my colleagues to do likewise."

A Senate vote on the Thune Amendment is scheduled for Wednesday.
