FPC Applauds Concealed Carry Reciprocity Vote

House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity

It eliminates the confusing patchwork of state laws that have ensnared otherwise law-abiding gun owners, and have forced law enforcement to waste their precious time and resources enforcing laws that don't do anything to reduce violent crime.

Additionally, the bill specifies that a qualified individual who lawfully carries or possesses a concealed handgun in another state: (1) is not subject to the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm in a school zone, and (2) may carry or possess the concealed handgun in federally owned lands that are open to the public. He called the bill 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 Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act passed the House on a 231-198 vote that largely broke along party lines. While I would have preferred that the legislation voted on today - which contains two separate issues - be debated separately, the reciprocity reforms in this bill are too important not to support.

Most states grant hide and carry permits but issuance standards vary significantly between jurisdictions.

Although permits are not required in Kansas, the state does issue some concealed-carry permits for bodyguards and others who now must take guns across state lines, or who want proof of their qualifications for business purposes. Leonard Lance (R-7) and Chris Smith (R-4)- voted no on the legislation, the first gun-related bill to be put up for a House vote since the deadly October mass shooting in Las Vegas. He said police aren't now able to determine whether a person carrying a loaded gun has a valid permit to do so, because a national database of such permits doesn't exist. "The irony is not lost on me; this bill epitomizes federal overreach and undermines states' rights to regulate firearms - especially in states like New Jersey who have made tremendous progress to limit the proliferation of guns", she said. Mikie Sherrill, the most successful fundraiser now facing Frelinghuysen, quickly issued a statement opposing his vote on the bill.

Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords called the vote "unthinkable".

The House bill now goes to the Senate.
