Frosh Calls Concealed Carry Bill A 'Public Safety Disaster' In Making

House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity Following mass shootings, House GOP votes to expand gun rights
Kenny Thornton | 07 December, 2017, 22:00

Through the now existing system, states are free to issue their own concealed carry permits and choose which other state's permits they want to recognize. "Americans don't lose their Second Amendment rights when they cross state lines, and they shouldn't lose their concealed carry rights either", Congresswoman Walorski said. This bill will give law-abiding citizens the ability to protect themselves when traveling across state lines, a significant step forward in exercising our Second Amendment rights.

A copy of FPC's written testimony regarding the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act and the Fix NICS Act passed by the House today can be viewed or downloaded at http://passhr38.com, where gun owners who wish to send letters to Congress may use FPC's free Grassroots Action Tools.

The bill still needs passage in the Senate, where it faces opposition from Democrats.

A qualified individual must: (1) be eligible to possess, transport, or receive a firearm under federal law; (2) carry a valid photo identification document; and (3) carry a valid concealed carry permit issued by, or be eligible to carry a concealed firearm in, his or her state of residence.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would allow any individual with a concealed carry permit to carry their firearm in any other state that allows concealed carry.

Singapore Airlines Decides to Reroute Flights as Measure against N. Korea Missiles
Despite the missile being close enough to be seen by the pilots, the airline is not planning to change its flying routes at the moment.

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

Just months after the nation's deadliest mass shooting in Las Vegas, the House passed a bill that would expand gun rights.

Two New Jersey Republicans- Chris Smith of the 4th District and Leonard Lance of the 7th District-voted against the bill. We wish to thank Congressman Richard Hudson for his bold and courageous leadership on this issue, as well as every House member who co-sponsored and voted for this important measure to protect and advance constitutional rights. Mikie Sherrill, the most successful fundraiser now facing Frelinghuysen, quickly issued a statement opposing his vote on the bill. "It's unspeakable that this is Congress' response to the worst gun tragedies in American history".

The House bill now goes to the Senate.
