.@NRA-backed bill to undermine state concealed carry laws just passed in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Earlier today, Police Chief Thomas Manger of the Major Cities Chiefs Association described the bill as "misguided" and "dangerous for his police officers."

So how each member voted is now part of the public record.   Will it matter in November 2018?   

PS:   "with six Democrats supporting it":  They will clearly face challenges in the next Dem primary.    But who will prevail?

I doubt the six Dems who voted for nationwide concealed weapons carry permitting will face much opposition.  They know their constituency. There will be Dem senators who will vote for it for the same reason.

I find it amusing that the GOPers compare the nationwide gun carry bill to national recognition of drivers licenses.  To me it is closer to states not accepting other states licenses for lawyers, teachers, doctors, social workers and large number of businesses.  A drivers license and a concealed weapons permit are not the same thing at all. 

Not to mention that having the feds regulate what the states can and cannot do re: guns is totally opposite to their belief in less federal intrusion in state government.

This New Mexico school shooting is the 57th American school shooting to date in 2017. Text JOIN to 64433 to join @MomsDemand if you believe Congress should stand up to the gun lobby so our children don't have to stand up to gunmen.
