Republicans in the Judiciary Committee combined a bill on background checks with the concealed-carry permits measure, a fact Democrats called unfortunate. Ideally, this would help keep guns out of the hands of convicted criminals.
Democrats also criticized Republicans for including a bill on background checks in the concealed-carry legislation.
Meanwhile an alert from Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America (GOA), claimed Fix NICS "would require that the rolls of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, and ObamaCare be trolled for recipients with PTSD, ADHD, or Alzheimer's-that is, people who have had guardians appointed", the group's legislative council said it was not arguing the bill would create new categories of prohibited people. "If I get married in North Carolina, if I move to California, I'm still married", Hudson said.
"An overwhelming majority of Americans support concealed carry reciprocity". As of 2014, all 50 states recognize concealed carry rights, though some states have different statutes regulating such a right. Currently, each state has its own set of rules and permits, some stronger than others.
A number of states also issue permits to non-residents, Nichols noted, meaning criminals could shop around for the place with the weakest law. Many police chiefs and law enforcement leaders agree.
Half the states do give law enforcement the authority to deny permits to those who raise risky red flags, such as an arrest for assault.
The bill's conservative defenders argue that in this case their right to bear arms trumps states' rights concerns.
A key concealed-carry bill could be on the U.S. House floor this week with Second Amendment supporters and law enforcement officers hoping for a big win.
Republicans said the reciprocity measure, a top priority of the National Rifle Association, would allow gun owners to travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state laws or civil suits. "It's darned disingenuous for them to be making a states' rights argument only for this subject".

"From my standpoint, I didn't want to put those two bills together, but I think the leadership's determined to do that", King told HuffPost on Tuesday. "There is broad bipartisan support for the Fix NICS bill here in the House and in the Senate".
Republicans rammed a bill through the House on Wednesday that would make it easier for gun owners to legally carry concealed weapons across state lines, the first significant action on guns in Congress since mass shootings in Nevada and Texas killed more than 80 people.
Still, it's revealing that in the wake of two of the most horrific mass shootings in recent USA history, Republicans are moving forward with legislation to expand gun rights.
Tedra Cobb, who is also seeking the Democratic nomination, said the bill does nothing to combat gun violence.
