NRA hails the House's passage of Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) opposed the bill for a similar reason.

A copy of FPC's written testimony regarding the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act and the Fix NICS Act passed by the House today can be viewed or downloaded at http://passhr38.com, where gun owners who wish to send letters to Congress may use FPC's free Grassroots Action Tools.

In a tweet sent last night, Governor Andrew Cuomo blasted the measure, saying that it would allow people convicted of violent misdemeanors out-of-state to carry hidden weapons into NY.

She said this even though it is a fact that concealed carry permit holders are among the most law-abiding of law-abiding Americans. 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. "At a time when NY boasts some of the most significant drops in violent crime, this brash and misguided legislation has the potential to reverse that trend as it will make it easier for people with criminal histories to carry risky firearms on our streets".

On Dec. 6 Breitbart News reported that Rep. Richard Hudson's (R-NC) national reciprocity legislation passed the House and was headed to the Senate. Six Democrats voted yes, while 14 Republicans voted no.

"Republicans are inviting violent criminals, domestic abusers, convicted stalkers, and those who have never undergone a background check or received any gun safety training the green light to carry their concealed weapons wherever they want", she added. Lynn Jenkins, Roger Marshall and Kevin Yoder all voted for the measure, which has been a high priority for the National Rifle Association and other pro-gun groups. Mikie Sherrill, the most successful fundraiser now facing Frelinghuysen, quickly issued a statement opposing his vote on the bill.

"Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen just voted in favor of a bill that puts the people of New Jersey at risk of more violence in their communities", Sherrill said.

It now goes to the Senate. "The Congressman voted to make the job of our law enforcement agencies more hard and to allow untrained and potentially risky individuals to carry concealed weapons in New Jersey".
