Concealed Carry Kills

“Concealed carry reciprocity” is a complicated name for a law that would make it simple for abusers to threaten and harass -- and kill -- their intimate partners with firearms. It would force every state to accept other states’ concealed carry permits, even if the out-of-state permit was issued to a domestic violence offender who would be prohibited from obtaining such a permit in the travel state. This is a clear violation of the Constitution’s recognition of states’ rights, and it is dangerous for victims of domestic violence.  It’s a race to the bottom. And survivors of domestic violence will be the losers.

In a sneaky attempt to pass the H.R.38, the House majority is bundling federally-mandated concealed carry reciprocity (CCR) with a good, the Fix NICS Act of 2017 (H.R. 4477).  The combined measure would negate protections offered by the FIX NICS Act. Despite our support for Fix NICS, we vigorously oppose CCR, and we therefore we also adamantly oppose this ‘guns package'.
