House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill

The House passed a bill Wednesday that allows concealed carry permit holders in different states to legally carry their firearms in other states.
The bill, called the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, is combined with legislation that would tighten background checks that are reported from federal agencies. It passed 231-198.
“An overwhelming majority of Americans support concealed carry reciprocity. Momentum, common sense, and the facts are on our side,” North Carolina Republican Rep. Richard Hudson said of his bill prior the vote in a statement.
The bill faces tougher odds of passing in the Senate, where it will require 60 votes to get through a procedural debate motion before a final simple majority vote.
Democrats slammed the bill, saying it was unfair to states with stricter gun laws to cede to states with looser gun laws.
