Concealed Carry Bill Gets Support from 3 NJ House Members

Concealed Carry Bill Gets Support from 3 NJ House Members

Under a bill that passed the US House of Representatives Wednesday, a person with a concealed-carry permit and a photo identification from one state would be able to have a gun hidden in their clothes in any other state that allows such permits. "And if they were lawfully possessed in that state, bring them here into Manhattan, into Times Square".

"Thirty-four states and the District of Columbia, including Tennessee, require residents to be at least 21 to receive a concealed carry handgun permit".

"More than 12 million citizens have carry permits".

"Congress continues to undermine effective and proven state gun laws that save lives, simply to placate their gun industry benefactors whose only concern is to increase gun violence, fear, gun sales and campaign contributions", he said.

Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) opposed the bill for a similar reason.

Guns can not be carried in New Jersey. 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.

Twelve states do not require permits, which means residents of those states could be allowed to carry a concealed weapon in NY without ever having a background check or meeting any other safety requirements. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services. Let's be clear: "These politicians are trading our safety for political contributions from the gun lobby". And they say individual states have the right to decide who gets such permits.

Since a change in IL law in 2013, all states allow some form of concealed carry - although some have strict requirements to obtain a permit. "H.R. 38 is a common-sense solution".

"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", Cox stated.
