House OKs GOP bill expanding gun owners' rights

After Vegas And Texas Massacres, Republicans Try To Make It Easier To Carry Concealed Guns

Concealed carry bill picks up steam

It also requires gun owners to comply with the laws of the states and towns where they are, regardless of the location where the permit was issued.

"We are in the thick of the legislative process and a so-called 'pro-gun group, ' which is nothing more than a fundraising entity, is spreading lies about the FIX NICS legislation that was attached to the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act", Lars Dalseide, a spokesperson for the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon.

The proposal would ensure a person's concealed carry permit in their home state is valid in any other state that also allows concealed carry. It's worth noting that Etsy represents Newton, Connecticut, the site of the unspeakable 2012 school shooting. She says "that will be a good thing to do". The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would treat concealed carry permits like driver's licenses. "Any talk about this legislation assisting risky criminals is irrational since criminals can not get permits to carry guns", Connecticut Citizens Defense League President Scott Wilson Sr. said in a statement to Channel 3 on Wednesday.

"Are you serious? We have to make sure that never happens again", Hudson said.

"Such interstate agreements have been commonplace for many years, and if reciprocity were an issue, you would know about it by now", Wilson said. "This bill would ensure that law-abiding citizens do not lose the ability to protect themselves when they travel from state to state". And it would "allow states with weak gun laws to endanger people in states with stronger gun laws, against the will of those states", said Lindsay Nichols, federal policy director at Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, a group named for former Rep.

"Instead of focusing on working to craft commonsense gun reform such as the banning of risky bump-stocks, Congressional Republicans continue to cater to the whims of the gun lobby at the expense of the safety of our people. CT remains a prime example of what applying smart, bipartisan gun reform can accomplish, and we hope that Congress will follow suit", Malloy said in a statement on Wednesday.

Star Wars: next trilogy won't be Knights Of The Old Republic
Recently, John Boyega - who stars as Stormtrooper-turned-Resistance fighter Finn in the latest trilogy - revealed he wants to see a Yoda origin story get told.

The measure now goes to the U.S. Senate.

"This bill passed today in the House would allow a criminal who bought a gun without a background check in Florida to carry that gun, concealed under his clothing, into Times Square". And some law enforcement officials argue that the bill doesn't take into account the different public safety challenges their cities face.

This bill was passed through the House committee along with the Fix NICS Act, which will aim to provide more accurate data collection under the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

The NRA said the bill does not expand the gun background check system in any way and also includes new legal protections for those who have been wrongly reported as prohibited from owning guns. Fourteen Republicans opposed the legislation, the first major firearms-related bill Congress has voted on since the massacres in Las Vegas and Texas earlier this year.

Meanwhile, the Justice Department said Tuesday it is reviewing whether devices that allow semiautomatic rifles to fire faster should be banned. I'm angry that the Senate is avoiding responsibility for limiting bump stocks.
