The House is poised to pass a bill that allows concealed carry permit holders from one state to legally carry their guns in any other state — legislation the National Rifle Association has called “their highest legislative priority” in 2017.
Voted out of the House Rules Committee by a vote of 8-3 along party lines, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act also passed the House Judiciary Committee in a party-line vote last week. The Fix NICS Act was added to the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act despite efforts to separate the two by Democrats. The joint legislation will be voted on as one as early as Wednesday.
I don’t have any business or any reason to travel to any state that doesn’t allow my Tennessee permit so the only reason I want to see this motherfucker pass is just to watch places like New Jersey, Massachusetts and California shit all over themselves.
You just fucking watch, they’ll come up with responses like “You can carry your gun but it must be unloaded” which is bullshit seeing as an unloaded gun is about as effective as a rock, or one that might actually be effective like “You can carry a gun but it must be loaded with state sanctioned ammunition” such as FMJ or something like that.
Regardless, they’re gonna be pissed as hell about it.
