Concealed Carry Bill Gets Support from 3 NJ House Members

  • Self Defense Concealed Carry

According to CNN, the House passed a bill known as The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act on Wednesday that would allow gun owners with permits to carry concealed weapons across state lines.

"This vote marks a watershed moment for Second Amendment rights", said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. "They're going to be a million people here in about three weeks, and that would be perfectly legal even if it was against NY state law". We wish to thank Congressman Richard Hudson for his bold and courageous leadership on this issue, as well as every House member who co-sponsored and voted for this important measure to protect and advance constitutional rights.

Authorities in NY and Los Angeles, as well as activists in Morristown and across New Jersey, contend the measure will increase risks for police and make it easy for gun owners from places with lax gun laws, like West Virginia, to secretly tote weapons here, where restrictions are stricter.

"This legislation will ensure that what happened to Shaneen does not happen to any other law-abiding gun owners by requiring states to recognize each other's gun carry permits, while recognizing states' rights to create their own firearms laws", MacArthur said in a statement.

The bill also makes improvements to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, NICS.

Another feature of H.R. 38 is an expedited process for removing names that have been erroneously submitted to NICS. The US House Judiciary Committee [official website] approved the bill late last month despite severe opposition to the bill from 17 states [JURIST report]. Mikie Sherrill, the most successful fundraiser now facing Frelinghuysen, quickly issued a statement opposing his vote on the bill.

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. FPC's mission is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, especially the fundamental, individual Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. 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.
