Stefanik votes for reciprocal concealed carry measure

Stefanik votes for reciprocal concealed carry measure

In a tweet sent last night, Governor Andrew Cuomo blasted the measure, saying that it would allow people convicted of violent misdemeanors out-of-state to carry hidden weapons into NY.

"This risky legislation would allow gun owners to bring their guns into Boston unchecked and concealed at a time when my officers are working tirelessly to keep guns and the damage and devastation they cause out of our city", Evans said in the statement.

"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". If the bill -known as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act- becomes federal law, it will contradict existing state laws and would increase the number of legally carried guns in the state.

A bill that would allow Kansas residents to carry concealed weapons without a permit in any state has passed the U.S. House with the support of all four Kansas representatives.

Most states grant hide and carry permits but issuance standards vary significantly between jurisdictions.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would allow any individual with a concealed carry permit to carry their firearm in any other state that allows concealed carry.

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

The passage of the bill is a startling development after recent mass shootings that have rocked the nation and sparked calls for tightening, rather than loosening, gun regulations. The bill is a top priority of the National Rifle Association.

Two New Jersey Republicans- Chris Smith of the 4th District and Leonard Lance of the 7th District-voted against the bill. He said police aren't now able to determine whether a person carrying a loaded gun has a valid permit to do so, because a national database of such permits doesn't exist. "Marylanders convicted of violent crimes are not allowed to carry concealed weapons on our streets, but the CCRA would allow violent criminals from other states to do so here".

Ahead of the vote, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords's pro-gun control organization held a press conference in Morristown calling on Frelinghuysen to vote no on the bill.

It now goes to the Senate.
