The House Passed a New Concealed Carry Bill That's Causing a Stir

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

The "Fix NICS" Act would improve the gun-sale background check system simply by helping ensure that the staffs of federal agencies and states complete a couple more keystrokes and mouse clicks every day and submit more records into the system.

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".

"Concealed Carry Reciprocity" would force states to allow many people to concealed carry without a permit - a move the American people oppose, too. "This bill, will allow a law-abiding citizen to carry concealed gun only if they are not federally prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm".

Most states grant hide and carry permits but issuance standards vary significantly between jurisdictions. "The irony is not lost on me; this bill epitomizes federal overreach and undermines states' rights to regulate firearms - especially in states like New Jersey who have made tremendous progress to limit the proliferation of guns", she said. "This proposed bill creates a real risk to public safety".

"Just look at all the shootings in Hudson", Canelli said.

To make CCR more palatable, House authors tacked on a worthy provision to strengthen the Federal Bureau of Investigation database of prohibited gun buyers after the Air Force failed to report the criminal history of the gunman who killed 26 people at a Texas church. "There's no cure for stupid". They were among 14 national Republicans to vote no on the bill.

"I think it is frightful", Zacker said.


Our senior senator pointed out that states such as North Carolina, Florida, Indiana, Tennessee, Michigan and Georgia, to name just a handful, have gun permit standards that are not as safe as NY and geographies that are much more rural than urban.

Let's get something straight, right here and now.

There is a bill that is backed broadly in the House and has enough Senate Republican support to beat a filibuster.

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.

While all 50 states allow concealed carry in some form, since 1991, 25 states have adopted Right to Carry laws. "We are disappointed in the House for passing this reckless legislation and we urge the Senate to respect state laws, to protect the safety of our communities, and to reject this bill", Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said in a statement.

"The concealed carry reciprocity is bad in a worse way than the fixing of the N.I.C.S. system is a good thing", said Mark Kelly, who is the husband of shooting survivor and former Representative Gabrielle Giffords.

"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.
