Congressman Comer votes for Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Congressman Comer votes for Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

This lowest-common-denominator approach would undermine states' basic responsibility to protect our communities - including by determining who may carry a concealed, loaded gun within our borders. "I support concealed carry laws and was the sponsor of Tennessee's when I was in the state senate, but I think state laws that are more restrictive should be respected".

The House vote came as the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said his agency expects to regulate bump-stock devices and could end up banning them.

While there have been cases in which penalties for such violations have been excessive, the solution isn't to force everyone to honor the permits regardless of how lax the home-state criteria for obtaining the permits may have been. This legislation passed the House 231-198. Its fate remains uncertain in the Senate, the Washington Post reported.

Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans said the bill "most assuredly puts the safety of all police officers and the public at risk.".

Through the now existing system, states are free to issue their own concealed carry permits and choose which other state's permits they want to recognize. As the New York Times' article explained, "Some states ... require that permit applicants have live-fire experience and safety training, along with a clean criminal history. Taking that authority away from those most qualified to make that determination is irresponsible and risky", he said.

Congressman Jim Banks released the following statement after voting for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act: "Protecting the constitutionally-guaranteed Second Amendment rights of Hoosiers is one of my top legislative priorities".

Gun control advocates, however, are ramping up a campaign to help bar the door to Senate passage on the expansion which they contend, along with top Congressional Democrats, is risky.

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 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".

She said this even though it is a fact that concealed carry permit holders are among the most law-abiding of law-abiding Americans.

City officials are constantly working to combat gun trafficking by criminals who bring firearms purchased in states with loose gun laws. "I'm angry that when this country is begging for courage from our leaders, they are responding with cowardice".
