House passes concealed carry reciprocity bill

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed legislation that would enable holders of concealed carry licenses to legally carry in other states.

It passed in the House by a 231-198 vote.

The measure also contained an amendment designed to address reporting and other issues with the NICS system. The bill was a top priority of Second Amendment groups, including the National Rifle Association.

“This vote marks a watershed moment for Second Amendment rights,” NRA executive director for legislative action Chris Cox said. “The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is the culmination of a 30-year movement recognizing the right of all law-abiding Americans to defend themselves, and their loved ones, including when they cross state lines.”
