Chicago, supporting the position that the Second Amendment
guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans;
protecting the privacy of concealed firearm permit holders;
preventing local municipalities from confiscating firearms during a

who lock their firearms in their personal vehicles while at
Representative Dodge's commitment to preserving our Second

is the clear choice to represent them," Cox concluded. "We ask all
