GOP-led House passes NRA-backed gun bill

Following mass shootings, House GOP votes to expand gun rights

House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity

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. "It's time for our federal government to secure the Constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to hide carry across state lines".

"This bill ensures that all law-abiding citizens in our great country can protect themselves in the manner they see fit without accidentally running afoul of the law", Cox stated.

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh is calling a bill on concealed carry reciprocity that just passed the House of Representatives a potential "public safety disaster". "We now call on the Senate to take up and pass this critical legislation", Cox concluded.

Most states grant hide and carry permits but issuance standards vary significantly between jurisdictions. U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) also voted to allow law-abiding gun owners with a concealed carry permit to exercise their rights when traveling across state lines. Democrats are largely opposed to the bill. However, the legislation only drew the support of six Democrats nationally, none of them from New Jersey.




The passage of the bill is a startling development after recent mass shootings that have rocked the nation and sparked calls for tightening, rather than loosening, gun regulations. Lynn Jenkins, Roger Marshall and Kevin Yoder all voted for the measure, which has been a high priority for the National Rifle Association and other pro-gun groups. They were among 14 national Republicans to vote no on the bill.

"I'm proud of Texas, our history of responsible gun ownership and our requirements for a license to carry that seek to protect the ones we love from abusers, violent offenders, and stalkers", he added. Mikie Sherrill, the most successful fundraiser now facing Frelinghuysen, quickly issued a statement opposing his vote on the bill.

But news of the bill's approval has been enthusiastically received among conservatives. "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".
