House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill

After Vegas And Texas Massacres, Republicans Try To Make It Easier To Carry Concealed Guns

It also requires gun owners to comply with the laws of the states and towns where they are, regardless of the location where the permit was issued. According to lawmakers, the act would allow concealed carry permit holders to carry a concealed handgun into or possess a concealed handgun in another state that allows concealed carry.

Republicans say it will let gun owners travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state laws or civil suits.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Willsboro) voted in favor of the resolution, which passed the GOP-led House 231-198 along party lines on Wednesday. Ahead of this vote today, since January 2015 - the start of Watson Coleman's tenure in the House of Representatives - the House has taken one formal action on firearm legislation - to roll back a rule that required the Social Security Administration to report people who receive disability benefits and have a mental health condition to the FBI's background check system.

"I'm angry that when this country is begging for courage from our leaders, they are responding with cowardice", she said in a statement. More than 12 million citizens have carry permits.

She says, "Then Jordan's fingers stopped holding mine".

Meanwhile, the Justice Department said Tuesday it is reviewing whether devices that allow semiautomatic rifles to fire faster should be banned.

The House of Representatives has voted to allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons between states, accomplishing a decades-long firearms lobby goal. Thomas Brandon told the Senate Judiciary Committee that the ATF and Justice Department would not have initiated the review "if (banning them) wasn't a possibility at the end". The review comes after the Las Vegas gunman used the so-called "bump stock" devices during the deadly October rampage. Our state has strong gun safety laws in place and remains committed to enforcing these statutes in the face of federal overreach.

Debate on the House bill became heated at times.

First lady Melania Trump visits Harvey responders, dines at Whataburger

Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., scoffed at that notion. "This is who we are in the North Country, and I fully support the right of responsible, law-abiding people to own guns".

"There are federal laws that could be expanded and strengthened right now to protect families and our communities, schools and workplaces, from gun violence", Cobb told a reporter at a event in Elizabethtown on Wednesday. "We're far from it".

Ed Perlmutter, a Democrat from Colorado, said the bill was an attempt to restrict the rights of states with tighter gun controls. The shooter, Devin Kelley, was a disturbed man who was court-martialed for domestic abuse in 2012, sentenced to a year in jail upon conviction, and was given a bad conduct discharge in 2014.

The Senate is considering a bipartisan bill to strengthen the Federal Bureau of Investigation database of prohibited gun buyers after the Air Force failed to report the criminal history of the gunman who slaughtered more than two dozen people at a Texas church. The Air Force has discovered several dozen other such reporting omissions since the November 5 shooting.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY, the senior Democrat on the Judiciary panel, said it was a cynical maneuver created to force Democrats to vote against the background check measure.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the committee's top ranking Democrat, said the uncertainty demands that Congress quickly approve legislation "to ban these unsafe devices".

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, co-sponsored a bipartisan bill bolstering the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS.
