US Home votes to increase hid carry gun rights

Kansans could carry concealed guns in any state under bill passed by US House Rep. Graves, House pass Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill
Derrick Tucker | 09 December, 2017, 04:44

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 would force states that allow the concealed carry of handguns to recognize permits issued in other states-including those which have more relaxed stances on gun control than NYC. House Republicans married concealed-carry reciprocity to a measure strengthening federal background checks on gun purchases, a political tactic Senate Republicans have chafed at. "Strengthening reporting ensures those who are not allowed to purchase a firearm can not do so".

He said police aren't now able to determine whether a person carrying a loaded gun has a valid permit to do so, because a national database of such permits doesn't exist.

The bill greatly expands the concealed carry rights for eligible individuals who can possess, transport or receive a firearm under federal law, carry a valid photo ID and carry a valid concealed carry permit issued by, or be eligible, to carry a concealed firearm in, his or her state of residence. They also say that, under the legislation, gun owners will only have to abide by requirements of the most lenient states. "This proposed bill creates a real risk to public safety".

"[Critics will] stand up and claim all kinds of doomsday scenarios about how we're going to increase crimes, we're going to increase the number of weapons out there, we're going to turn the cities into the Wild West", Hudson said Wednesday on the House floor. This fallacy that there is some breakdown in the NICS background check system because the Texas mass killer scumbag was able to buy a gun legally when he shouldn't have isn't a breakdown in the NICS system. NO. "There's no cure for stupid".

The major supporter of CCR is the powerful National Rifle Association, the gun owners group that has poured millions into lobbying for less-restrictive gun laws.

That said, I'm not willing to send it to the cemetery of other dead bills because some yahoo on a Youtube video, a fundraiser in the form of an email, or comment from someone who saw it an email or on that same dopey Youtube video, tells me something that isn't true.

If there isn't enough money in your Apple Pay Cash account to cover a transaction your bank card kicks in to cover the rest. In iMessage,  Pay will show up as the first option once you tap the App Store icon next to the text field.

Let's get something straight, right here and now. Seven Democrats now serving voted for a similar bill.

An affront to our city, our police force - and just basic decency - has snaked its way through one of what used to be the hallowed halls of the Legislative Branch.

Apparently, ignorance of the law - at least when it came to concealed-carry gun laws - was a legitimate excuse.

Opponents, mostly Democrats, say the bill could endanger public safety by overriding state laws that place strict limits on guns.

"I support this bill 100 percent", said Greene County Sheriff Greg Seeley.
