Congressman Comer votes for Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Congressman Comer votes for Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

"The legislation passed by the House today ensures that people who carry their legal firearm across state borders are protected under the law".

The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a long-debated concealed carry reciprocity bill that would allow licensed gun owners from other states to carry concealed weapons into NY state, something that is not now allowed.

"Individuals with concealed carry permits are law-abiding citizens with Constitutional rights, not criminals", Frelinghuysen said in a statement. Those against the bill point to public safety and cite recent gun violence in the country. If the bill -known as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act- becomes federal law, it will contradict existing state laws and would increase the number of legally carried guns in the state.

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. Eleven states, he noted, grant permits to people who haven't had safety training, while 20 allow permits for people with a record of violent crime and 12 don't require any permit at all.

"The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is 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", Cox said.

Democrats threaten government shutdown over 'Dreamers' program
Those safeguards ended three months ago, but Trump has said he could restore them, according to The Associated Press. Trump says the end result will be "perfecto" and something will come out of conference "pretty quickly".

"Without this citizen's quick thinking and actions, who knows how many could have fallen victim to this shooter?"

Schumer noted that the proposed legislation would create serious problems for law enforcement officers across NY and in the five boroughs, especially when it comes to verifying permits granted by other states, because there is no national database. "The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act will protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and allow those qualified to carry a concealed firearm to do so in any state that allows it". He called it a cynical maneuver to force Democrats to cast a politically unpopular vote against background checks.

The legislation faces an uncertain future in the Senate.

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.

"I urge the Senate to reject this disastrous legislation".
