House Passes GOP Bill Allowing Concealed Carry Across State Lines

1

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.

The House approved the bill, 231-198, largely along party lines. Six Democrats voted yes, while 14 Republicans voted no.

The measure would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed-carry permit to carry a handgun in any state that allows concealed weapons. It now goes to the Senate.Read more at NY POST.

  1. If it passes in the Senate, there’ll be no excuse for our community to be a soft target in NY, NJ, MD and CA. Every shul and yeshiva should have a few volunteers who are well trained and armed at all times. Our neighborhoods should not be at mercy of local mayors ordering police stand down in time of riots. Ladies and those who are physically frail should pack heat, and not be at mercy of street bullies.
