House approves bill granting gun owners hide and carry reciprocity

House Passage of Concealed Carry Reciprocity a Victory

Legislation

Twelve states do not require permits, which means residents of those states could be allowed to carry a concealed weapon in NY without ever having a background check or meeting any other safety requirements. "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".

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act passed the House on a 231-198 vote that largely broke along party lines.

Rep. Andy Harris, in a statement this week hailing the bill passing the House, said the legislation will in fact make the country safer.

"Even the most careful and knowledgeable concealed carry permit holders find it hard to navigate the current maze of state and local concealed carry laws", Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), author of the bill, said.

And while we strongly oppose recent additions that give "extra-special gun rights" to Federal judges and other government workers which are not available to law-abiding citizens, we will continue to work towards passage of a strong carry reciprocity framework as well as communicate our concerns and suggestions for reasonable, commonsense amendments to better protect law-abiding people.

Community honors Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, local hero
President Trump and first lady Melania Trump visit the USS Arizona Memorial on November 3 at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu. People are remembering the sacrifice of the servicemen that day.

Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11th Dist.), whose Morristown office was picketed this week by opponents of HR 28, supported 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. He also urged New Yorkers to Tweet their displeasure toward GOP lawmakers, although the list included Long Island's Pete King and Staten Island's Dan Donovan, two Republicans who voted against the measure. The bill requires a response to an appeal in no more than 60 days.

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.

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.

The bill now heads to the senate.
