Concealed-carry bill passes House; Frelinghuysen supports it

The U.S. House of Representatives is set to Vote on H.R. 38 the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act in December 2017

A key concealed-carry bill could be on the U.S. House floor this week with Second Amendment supporters and law enforcement officers hoping for a big win. "Any talk about this legislation assisting unsafe criminals is irrational since criminals can not get permits to carry guns", Connecticut Citizens Defense League President Scott Wilson Sr. said in a statement to Channel 3 on Wednesday. It passed the House Judiciary Committee last week and faces the full House vote as early as Wednesday.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY, top Democrat on the House Judiciary panel, said the background-check provision "actually would save lives and should not be tethered" to the concealed-carry reciprocity bill. In fact, he is not even permitted to have his gun in his vehicle, even though he has a concealed carry permit from Kentucky, and this is because IL only recognizes its own carry permit. By combining the national concealed weapons bill with the Fix NICS Act, the House is jeopardizing the chances of actually passing bipartisan, comprehensive reform of our broken background checks system. Fletcher volunteered his gun to a local officer but was arrested and released only after spending a night in jail and posting $25,000 bail.

The House vote came as the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said his agency expects to regulate bump-stock devices and could end up banning them.

It wasn't even that close of a vote (231-198), but it was largely consistent with partisan opinions on the issue of gun control.

He said the legislation would mean that a concealed-carry permit would become like a driver's licence in that it would be valid in any state.

However, 17 attorneys general, including N.C.'s Attorney General Josh Stein, signed a letter to lawmakers opposing the bill.

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. The fix has widespread support in the wake of this year's shootings in Las Vegas and Southerland Springs, Texas.

"Are you serious? We have to make sure that never happens again", Hudson said. Ideally, this would help keep guns out of the hands of convicted criminals.

I didn't know what to expect when I saw Baszler compete in the Mae Young Classic , but she thoroughly impressed me. Last month, in an interview with Good Morning Britain , Triple H spoke about WWE's mutual interest with Rousey.

While the House was expected to pass it, the bill's future is uncertain in the U.S. Senate.

Despite what appears in the bill's text, Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights, described it as establishing "a gun control super-database" and "expanding the Brady-NICS gun owner registry". On Wednesday, the day the bill is now scheduled for debate on the House floor, the Newtown Foundation will hold a pre-planned vigil in Washington, D.C., with coordinated ones across the country to raise awareness about gun violence.

"Concealed carry reciprocity is the NRA's highest legislative priority in Congress", wrote the NRA in a press release on November 27.

Hudson is hopeful that the bill will be considered on its merits, rather than be caught up in the emotion surrounding violence and tragedy.
