On Wednesday afternoon, the House of Representatives voted in favor of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. It eliminates the confusing patchwork of state laws that have ensnared otherwise law-abiding gun owners, and have forced law enforcement to waste their precious time and resources enforcing laws that don't do anything to reduce violent crime. "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".

Let's be clear: "These politicians are trading our safety for political contributions from the gun lobby". The legislation permits individuals with a concealed carry permit to carry a concealed firearm in any state that allows it.
