The Republican-controlled House is taking up a bill to make it easier for gun owners to legally carry concealed weapons across state lines. Right now a person has to find out what the law says in each state that they are traveling in so they don't get arrested.
"The truth is that concealed carry laws save lives", Ryan said in a statement.
This is not hyperbolic.
Despite almost a year of protests from prominent California Democrats that the bill would undermine the state's stringent gun control laws, House Republicans on Wednesday passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act on a near party line vote.
The bill passed 231 to 198.
Airlines Are Set to Make Even More Money Off Passengers in 2018
In 2018, IATA forecast airline passengers to spend US$861b, or 1 per cent of world GDP, on travel. In September, worldwide passenger demand had increased 6.6 percent from the previous month.
Most states grant hide and carry permits but issuance standards vary significantly between jurisdictions.
"Almost two dozen attorneys general are backing the measure, including Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, who wrote in support that ".strong evidence indicates that concealed-carry permit holders actually deter and reduce crime". Please include your name, town and phone number, for confirmation purposes.
"This radical Republican bill is a direct threat to public safety", Pelosi said in a statement.
Detractors say the bill tramples states' rights and that gun permits differ from drivers' licenses, which are generally uniform across the country.
U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson, R-8th District, passionately urged his colleagues Wednesday to pass major Second Amendment legislation allowing concealed carry permit holders to transport weapons across state lines without fear of prosecution.
The world's biggest Starbucks just opened in China
One of its three coffee bars is 88-feet long, the longest Starbucks bar in the world - because waiting in line is so 2016. Starbucks increased its China investment during July, when plans were announced to buy out its joint venture partners.
Republicans said the reciprocity measure would allow gun owners to travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state laws or lawsuits. "This bill, will allow a law-abiding citizen to carry concealed gun only if they are not federally prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm".
Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans said the bill "most assuredly puts the safety of all police officers and the public at risk.".
Democrats and gun control advocates tried to hold back the bill from making it out of the House Judiciary Committee in November, but failed. Some states already have concealed carry reciprocity and it has had deadly consequences. "People have been shooting each other for hundreds of years".
"Former Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona, who was shot in the head during a constituent event in her home state in 2011, responded to Frelinghuysen on Twitter after his vote: "@USRepRodney just voted to weaken our gun laws. "We will do all we can to ensure this bill doesn't see the light of day in the Senate".
