Alexander Votes to Support Second Amendment Rights

Posted on July 23, 2009

U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement regarding his vote yesterday in favor of the Thune amendment to the Defense Authorization bill: “In 2008, the Supreme Court confirmed an individual’s right to keep and bear arms. This amendment would have protected that right by allowing Tennesseans with carry permits to carry a firearm in other states with concealed carry laws, just like Tennessee driver’s licenses are accepted in other states.”
