Bill letting people bring concealed guns across state lines passes House

Bill letting people bring concealed guns across state lines passes House

Republicans said the reciprocity measure would allow gun owners to travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state laws or lawsuits. Gov. Chris Christie pardoned her in 2015.

Like everyone else, I would have rather seen a clean, stand alone H.R 38 National Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill passed and sent to Trump's desk, but this bill, even with the "Bump Stock Provision and Fix-NICS attached, is fine by me. Why?"

"I will always defend Montanans' Second Amendment rights, and I am proud to have cosponsored the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act,"Gianforte said".

The Republican-controlled chamber passed the bill by 231-198, in their first major gun legislation since a 2012 CT school massacre. Just days before Americans mark five years since the horrifying mass shooting at Sandy Hook School on December 14, 2012, they hijacked this popular, common-sense bill and saddled it with the gun lobby's top priority, "Concealed Carry Reciprocity".

Guns can not be carried in New Jersey.

Rep. Louise M. Slaughter giving statement against HR 38 in committee Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017, before the bill was sent to the House floor for a vote.

Since a change in IL law in 2013, all states allow some form of concealed carry - although some have strict requirements to obtain a permit.

The legislation now heads to the Senate.

Though Wednesday's vote in the House was largely along party lines, six Democrats crossed the aisle to back the bill.

Democratic Rep. Elizabeth Esty says Republicans are catering to gun industry lobbyists by combining a bill on background checks with one making it easier to carry concealed guns across state lines.

Many New Jersey districts are a top priority for national Democrats looking to shift control of the House during the 2018 midterm elections.

Canelli cited the gun violence in Hudson experienced over the summer, and the several shootings that took place, to argue firearms are not the problem.

It's not just red states that are more lenient with concealed carry. "People have been shooting each other for hundreds of years".

Ahead of the vote, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords's pro-gun control organization held a press conference in Morristown calling on Frelinghuysen to vote no on the bill.

A woman who survived the mass shooting in Las Vegas is describing in wrenching detail of how she remained by the side of one of the victims as he died. The group -Giffords- also ran tv ads this week informing voters that the bill would allow "nearly anyone with hidden, loaded guns would be allowed into communities".

Kirstjen Nielsen sworn in as DHS secretary
While campaigning for the presidency, candidate Trump promised that he would "immediately terminate" DACA after being elected. The Justice Department under Sessions, and DHS under Nielsen, will share in enforcing different portions of immigration law.

The House bill now goes to the Senate.
