Californians vote along party lines as House passes bill to allow concealed guns across state lines
07 December, 2017, 09:06
The measure has 210 Republican co-sponsors and three Democrats.
Nadler and other Democrats say the concealed-carry bill would force those who in live in states with strong gun laws to abide by states with the weakest and most unsafe concealed-carry laws. "The concealed-carry permit should be recognized the same way". "The truth is that concealed carry laws save lives". Some in the gun lobby are trying to sell bills like this one as something that "makes us safer and will reduce mass shootings", said Avery Gardiner, co-president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
Republicans said the reciprocity measure, a top priority of the National Rifle Association, would allow gun owners to travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state laws or civil suits. Six Democrats voted for the so-called reciprocity measure, which would allow a gun owner with the proper permit in any state to carry a concealed firearm to another state where it is also legal.

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who survived a 2011 shooting, said she was furious over the bill's passage.

"Concealed carry reciprocity is the NRA's highest legislative priority in Congress", wrote the NRA in a press release on November 27. Giffords retweeted these posts, adding that those good wishes won't get the job done when it comes to stopping gun violence.
Authorities in NY and Los Angeles, as well as activists in Morristown and across New Jersey, contend the measure will increase risks for police and make it easy for gun owners from places with lax gun laws, like West Virginia, to secretly tote weapons here, where restrictions are stricter. "This is not the kind of leadership our nation deserves", Giffords tweeted at Republican Rep. Darrell Issa in just one of almost 40 responses she had sent out. Two months after two of the deadliest shootings in US history, Republicans were "brazenly moving to hand the NRA the biggest item on its Christmas wish list", said Pelosi, D-Calif.
Thomas Brandon told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the ATF and the Justice Department wouldn't have initiated a review of whether bump stocks should be banned "if that wasn't a possibility at the end".
Hastings predicted the measure was "going nowhere" in the Senate, where Republicans control the chamber but would need backing from eight Democrats to avoid a filibuster. "There is broad bipartisan support for the Fix NICS bill here in the House and in the Senate". He has a bipartisan bill on that issue with Connecticut Sen.
This bill was passed through the House committee along with the Fix NICS Act, which will aim to provide more accurate data collection under the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. "And I think it's important enough that we ought to handle those sequentially, would be my advice".
