Concealed-Carry Gun Bill Headed for House Vote

A bill that would make concealed-carry gun right permits valid across state lines is headed for a House vote, as first reported by Fox News.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act’s sponsor, Congressman Richard Hudson, a Republican from North Carolina, told Fox News the bill does not change current background check laws on gun purchases, but it does protect citizens from unwittingly becoming criminals and getting arrested once they cross a state line.

According to Fox News, the bill has 213 cosponsors, three of them Democrats. The vote is set for Wednesday.
