House passes legislation extending concealed carry privilege across state lines

House passes legislation extending concealed carry privilege across state lines

The bill's proponents say the gun owners' licenses should be honored the same way that a driver's license in one state is honored in other states. "This bill, will allow a law-abiding citizen to carry concealed gun only if they are not federally prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm".

"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.

The lower chamber approved the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act in a 231-198 vote.

The legislation now heads to the Senate.

She said this even though it is a fact that concealed carry permit holders are among the most law-abiding of law-abiding Americans. Called "the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act", the bill was proposed by Doug Collins of Georgia in January and sponsored by Richard Hudson of North Carolina and amends Title 18 of the US Code, "to provide a means by which nonresidents of a State whose residents may carry concealed firearms may also do so in the State".

Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11th Dist.), whose Morristown office was picketed this week by opponents of HR 28, supported the bill. "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.

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. This bill requires a response to an appeal within 60 days. 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.

Ahead of the vote, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords's pro-gun control organization held a press conference in Morristown calling on Frelinghuysen to vote no on the bill.

A similar bill is now pending in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The bill would allow persons who are eligible to carry a concealed weapon in their home state do so in any state that allows concealed carry by private individuals.
