More idiocy on guns, thanks to the NRA and US House

Kansans could carry concealed guns in any state under bill passed by US House

Healey joined the Massachusetts Police Chiefs Association and other law enforcement agencies Thursday to release a statement saying "it would be tragic for this to become the next deadly loophole in our nation's gun laws".

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 passed by a 231-198 vote.

State gun laws vary across the United States; some states issue permits to convicted felons through loopholes in background check laws, convicted violent misdemeanants, people wanted on warrants, and those subject to orders of protection.

Proponents of concealed-carry reciprocity argue that the measure is necessary for law-abiding gun owners to avoid inadvertently violating local laws when transporting their weapons across state lines. Seven Democrats now serving voted for a similar bill.

Faso voted for the bill.

CLAIM: "It spends over half a billion dollars to collect more names to include in a list of people who will never be allowed to own a firearm".

"The House of Representatives passed a bill that would let nearly anyone carry loaded, concealed firearms nearly anywhere in the United States", said Giffords, who was shot in the head during a 2011 mass shooting. And it would not establish a national standard for who is allowed to carry a hidden, loaded gun in public.

"Congress continues to undermine effective and proven state gun laws that save lives, simply to placate their gun industry benefactors whose only concern is to increase gun violence, fear, gun sales and campaign contributions", he said.

Republicans said the bill would allow gun owners to travel without having to worry about conflicting state laws. 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.

"I think it is terrible", Zacker said.

Each state has its own set of requirements and restrictions governing the issuance of concealed-carry permits - and some, like Massachusetts', are far stricter than others. "In some of the states with much looser concealed-carry they actually have more limits on where you can carry because so many people are carrying".

The National Rifle Association made passing this bill a priority, and the House capitulated.

The representative for a CT district containing Newtown, where 26 people were shot dead by a gunman in 2012, said the bill would endanger public safety.

"When the Founding Fathers penned the Second Amendment, the right of people to keep and bear arms was meant to empower individuals - a principle that has been solidified by recent Supreme Court decisions", Foxx said in a statement. "People have been shooting each other for hundreds of years". 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.
