AG Healey Calls On US Senate To Reject Concealed Carry Gun Bill

House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity The Latest: GOP-led House passes NRA-backed gun bill | The Tribune

The "concealed carry" bill is the first gun legislation in Congress since mass shootings in Nevada and Texas killed more than 80 people. They hardly paused for the smoke to clear from the October 1 Las Vegas massacre - in which retired accountant Stephen Paddock sprayed thousands of rounds on a crowd enjoying a country music concert, killing at least 59 people and wounding more than 500 - before lobbying members of Congress to pass this reprehensible bill.

Under a bill that passed the US House of Representatives Wednesday, a person with a concealed-carry permit and a photo identification from one state would be able to have a gun hidden in their clothes in any other state that allows such permits.

Do you agree with that last statement? Moreover, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity is a poison pill, and adding it to the "Fix NICS Act" imperils the best chance we've had of passing common sense gun safety legislation in a decade. We wouldn't recommend holding your breathe in hopes of a quick ruling, however.

The new bill will allow people with a state-issued concealed carry license in Montana to carry in other states. "The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is the culmination of a 30-year movement recognizing the right of all law-abiding Americans to defend themselves, and their loved ones, including when they cross state lines".

The House approved the bill, 231-198, largely along party lines.

Instagram Direct is the pure Snapchat clone you've been waiting for
The only real downside is you'll have to install two apps to get the same functionality that's now present in one app. But as long as Direct is a part of Instagram , expanding the platform would get increasingly hard for the company.

The point of the policy is to effectively override state-based conceal-carry restrictions.

Supporters said the act also would strengthen reporting requirements for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

The intention of concealed carry reciprocity is to allow people legally permitted to carry concealed weapons to do so throughout all states, akin to a driver's license. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime.

Kansas doesn't require a permit to carry concealed, so other states' permit standards wouldn't apply to Kansans traveling there. "The Congressman voted to make the job of our law enforcement agencies more hard and to allow untrained and potentially risky individuals to carry concealed weapons in New Jersey".
