WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Jody Hice (R-GA) yesterday introduced H.R. 2945, the Congressional Personal Safety Act, which will allow Members of Congress to carry a firearm anywhere in the United States, except for the U.S. Capitol Building.

“Personal protection and being able to defend oneself against an assailant is part of the fabric of our Constitution, which is why I am an ardent believer in the Second Amendment,” said Congressman Hice. “While Members of Congress are all average Americans, it is clear that we also have a bull's eye on our backs. In light of recent events, it’s incredibly important that Congressmen and women maintain the ability to provide for their own safety, regardless of the city or state.”

“The Congressional Personal Safety Act will grant elected officials the authority to carry a firearm anywhere in America, except for the Capitol,” Hice continued. “Simply put, the right to bear arms is a right to self-defense, and I’m proud to spearhead this measure.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
