House passes bill loosening gun restrictions

Missouri AG Josh Hawley urges Congress to support concealed-carry legislation

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.

The House passed a bill Wednesday that will allow concealed carry weapon permit holders to hide their weapon in any other states.

On a mostly party-line vote, the measure easily passed, 231-198, although 14 Republicans voted no.

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.

"I'm angry that with shootings on the rise, the response from politicians is to sell out to the gun lobby and weaken our public safety laws", Ms. Giffords said in a statement issued shortly after the vote.

Connecticut Democrat Rep. Elizabeth Esty - who represents Newtown, Conn., where 20 first-graders and six teachers and staff were killed in a 2012 mass shooting - said the bill would undermine states' rights, "hamstring law enforcement and allow risky criminals to walk around with hidden guns anywhere and at any time".

The NRA's executive director, Chris Cox, is quoted in the Times as saying Thursday's vote is a "watershed" for Second Amendment rights and that the bill would ensure "all law-abiding citizens in our great country can protect themselves in the manner they see fit without accidentally running afoul of the law". This piece of gun legislation is the first tangible action Congress has taken since 80 Americans were murdered in mass shootings in Nevada and Texas.

Well, criminals already do that, congresswoman, but that's beside the point. They also include punishments, such as stripping bonuses from political appointees, for states and agencies that don't fully comply. The text of the bill shows, however, that it does not expand the classifications of who is considered prohibited from owning or possessing firearms, nor does it expand the kinds of criminal or mental health records required to be submitted to the system.

Public visitation Wednesday for Mariah Woods; memorial fund established
Anyone who wishes to pay their respects can do so from 4 p.m.to 6 p.m.at the Jones Funeral Home in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Two candlelit vigils are being held in Mariah's honor this week, with the first of them having occurred Tuesday night.

North Carolina GOP Rep. Richard Hudson, the author of the bill, recounted a story on the House floor about a woman from Pennsylvania with no criminal record who held a concealed carry permit for her pistol, which was not recognized when she traveled to New Jersey, and was later jailed.

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".

"Weak Republicans always push gun control laws under the guise of 'enforcing the laws we have, ' but only end up pushing the Democrat agenda, giving gun owners more reasons to worry", he said.

"No, we are not arguing that "Fix NICS" adds new categories", Michael Hammond, general counsel for GOA, told the Free Beacon. "There is broad bipartisan support for the Fix NICS bill here in the House and in the Senate".

Many Democrats were also incensed that the bill was merged with two other measures with bipartisan support.

It now heads to the Senate, where it'll be more of an uphill battle given the 60-vote threshold.

Democrats also criticized Republicans for including a bill on background checks in the concealed-carry legislation.

It was a victory for the National Rifle Association, which claimed that the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, if approved by the Senate, will override a patchwork of state laws so concealed carry permits are universally accepted, like drivers licenses.
