Wicker, Cochran Co-Sponsoring Concealed Carry Bill

Meridian, Miss. Mississippi Senators Roger Wicker and Thad Cochran are co-sponsoring a bill that would allow Mississippians to carry concealed weapons in other states.

Senator Wicker tells Newscenter 11 it is all part of protecting the rights of the Second Amendment. He says if you live in Mississippi and have a concealed carry permit, then you would not face prosecution in another state, if you are carrying a concealed weapon.

"The right to keep and bear arms has to do with personal safety," Senator Wicker says. "And it's something that is so important that it's been enshrined in our bill of rights."

Wicker says you must qualify under Mississippi state law first.
