Gun Grabbers Won’t Like What These Lawmakers Just Passed

Should Americans with concealed carry permits be allowed to carry in all states, or would a federal law impinge on states’ rights?

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 231-198 to pass a bill that would allow concealed carry across state lines.

Democrats don’t like it:

From Fox News:

But similar Senate legislation still faces an uncertain future, with top Democrats and other gun-control advocates rallying in opposition on Capitol Hill.

“For the millions of law-abiding citizens who lawfully carry concealed to protect themselves, for conservatives who want to strengthen our Second Amendment rights, and for the overwhelming majority of Americans who support concealed carry reciprocity, Christmas came early,” Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., the bill’s sponsor, reacted.

Hudson had tried unsuccessfully for years to pass such legislation, which he says simply attempts to clarify the patchwork of state laws that confuse citizens who might unwittingly be arrested while going from state to state.

Some Americans think we don’t need government permission to own or carry guns. These “constitutional carry” proponents say the Second Amendment is the permit.
