GOP-led House passes NRA-backed gun bill

GOP-led House passes NRA-backed gun bill

"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.

"If passed, this bill would reduce safety to the lowest common denominator", Frosh said.

Although permits are not required in Kansas, the state does issue some concealed-carry permits for bodyguards and others who now must take guns across state lines, or who want proof of their qualifications for business purposes.

Additionally, the bill specifies that a qualified individual who lawfully carries or possesses a concealed handgun in another state: (1) is not subject to the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm in a school zone, and (2) may carry or possess the concealed handgun in federally owned lands that are open to the public.

Just months after the nation's deadliest mass shooting in Las Vegas, the House passed a bill that would expand gun rights. "Taking that authority away from those most qualified to make that determination is irresponsible and unsafe", he said.

"The truth is that concealed carry laws save lives", Ryan said in a statement.


Two New Jersey Republicans- Chris Smith of the 4th District and Leonard Lance of the 7th District-voted against the bill.

If it ultimately passes, the bill is expected to be challenged on the idea that it is an illegal intrusion into state's rights.

"This vote marks a watershed moment for Second Amendment rights", said Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action.

Since a change in IL law in 2013, all states allow some form of concealed carry - although some have strict requirements to obtain a permit.

"This bill ensures that all law-abiding citizens in our great country can protect themselves in the manner they see fit without accidentally running afoul of the law".

"Several years after being shot in the head, I've learned a lot - how to walk again, how to talk again, and how to start each day ready to change the world, " she said in a statement. I'm angry that with shootings on the rise, the response from politicians is to sell out to the gun lobby and weaken our public safety laws.
