DA McMahon speaks out against concealed-carry legislation

Self Defense Concealed Carry

"We now call on the Senate to take up and pass this critical legislation", Cox concluded.

The measure would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed-carry permit to carry a handgun in any state that allows concealed weapons. Number two, her tweet ignores the fact that concealed carry permit holders are among the most law-abiding of law-abiding citizens.

Republicans attached the concealed carry measure to a bipartisan bill to strengthen the national background check system, causing House Democrats to sour on the legislative package.

The bill, H.R. 38, will allow Americans who legally hide carry firearms to do so in other states. "The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is 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".

Healey called the bill "reckless" and urged the Senate to respect state laws.

It also addresses the modern issue of mass shootings by giving state and government agencies incentive to update the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) with the most current information. "The Second Amendment right to bear arms is one of the most fundamental rights provided to us in the Constitution and I will proudly continue to stand up for the gun rights of Kentuckians".

The Justice Department announced this week it is reviewing whether weapons using bump stocks should be considered illegal machine guns under federal law. Other states, which have "shall" issue instead of "may" issue clauses regarding concealed carry permits, are much more permissive.

"Even the most careful and knowledgeable concealed carry permit holders find it hard to navigate the current maze of state and local concealed carry laws", Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), author of the bill, said.

Named for Michael Boeglin, a 31 year old owner-operator who was shot to death while waiting to pick up a load in Detroit in 2014, Mike's Law called for nationwide hide and carry reciprocity for truck drivers on the job.
