CT senator urges colleagues to reject concealed carry law

"This legislation is risky for the state of MA, our law enforcement officers, and our residents. We must respect states' rights to enact their own laws". "The irony is not lost on me; this bill epitomizes federal overreach and undermines states' rights to regulate firearms - especially in states like New Jersey who have made tremendous progress to limit the proliferation of guns", she said. But critics point out that different states have different reqirements for obtaining such licenses. Congress should reject this bill, and instead allow a clean vote on the Fix NICS Act without concealed carry reciprocity. The vote, which took place Wednesday, was 231-198.

The legislation faces an uncertain future in the Senate. And if it does pass, it's expected to face legal challenges. "This proposed bill creates a real risk to public safety".

In our state, concealed carry is allowed only by permit of law enforcement-and that's the way it should be.

Proponents of concealed-carry reciprocity argue that the measure is necessary for law-abiding gun owners to avoid inadvertently violating local laws when transporting their weapons across state lines. Rules like that might work in sparsely populated states such as Wyoming or North Dakota, but they don't in larger metropolitan areas with more gun violence.

"I would venture to guess that you will see millions of applications out of the greater Bay Area and Los Angeles metroplex to states like Florida and Nevada", said Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California, a gun rights advocacy group based in Sacramento.

In a cynical move, the bill was paired with companion legislation to beef up the national background check reporting system - which all sides in the gun control issue support, and which does little to offset the potential harm done by the concealed-carry bill.

FACT: The bill went through a very thorough and public markup session of its own. "The states' rights thing is getting a little out of hand". He called the bill the "culmination of a 30-year movement recognizing the right of all law-abiding Americans to defend themselves, and their loved ones, including when they cross state lines". "In a remarkable post-passage comment that, besides being inaccurate, would twist any Christian theologian into a pretzel to explain, Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., the bill's sponsor, crowed, ".for the overwhelming majority of Americans who support concealed carry reciprocity, Christmas came early".
