Nancy Pelosi: GOP Using National Reciprocity to Arm 'Violent Criminals'

Congressman Banks releases statement on his vote for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

The legislation, Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, makes the concealed carry permit of one state valid in the other 49.

It was a victory for the National Rifle Association, which claimed that the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, if approved by the Senate, will override a patchwork of state laws so concealed carry permits are universally accepted, like drivers licenses.

Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords called the vote "unthinkable". This bill will give law-abiding citizens the ability to protect themselves when traveling across state lines, a significant step forward in exercising our Second Amendment rights. "Any measures that would contribute to the increase of firearms in NY could only jeopardize the level of safety that New Yorkers have benefited from through effective gun control".

The legislation also would order the Justice Department to study bump stocks, including how often they are used in a crime. Dianne Feinstein of California, the Judiciary panel's top ranking Democrat, said the uncertainty demands that Congress quickly approve legislation "to ban these risky devices".

The House bill now goes to the Senate.
