• State-by-state concealed-carry gun laws differ because gun violence and behavior differs. Leave it to states to know what is best for the safety of their own residents.
• Recent gun violence in schools and other public places shows the need for more law abiding citizens to carry guns.
Passed the House of Representatives.
This bill amends the federal criminal code to allow a qualified individual to possess or carry a concealed handgun into another state that allows individuals to carry concealed firearms. This bill also allows qualified individuals to carry or possess a concealed handgun into a school zone and on federally owned lands open to the public. A qualified individual must: (1) be eligible to possess, transport, or receive a firearm under federal law; (2) carry a valid photo identification document; and (3) carry a valid concealed carry permit issued by, or be eligible to carry a concealed firearm in, his or her state of residence.
