House Of Representatives Pass Bill Loosening Gun Restrictions
In Washington, the House of Representatives approved legislation loosening gun regulations and allowing those with permits to carry concealed weapons to legally travel with those firearms to other states. Here's what we know so far.
According to CNN, the bill passed with a 231-198 vote. This means, it will be easier to cross state lines legally if you have the proper permits:
"The Bill of Rights is not a philosophical exercise," Georgia GOP Rep. Doug Collins, who personally had a concealed carry permit for what described as self-defense reasons. "I don't think that right should be undermined simply because I travel to another state."
This was the first major firearms-related bill Congress has voted on since the massacres in Las Vegas and Texas earlier this year. What this means, in simple terms: Those who have permits to carry concealed weapons can legally travel with those firearms to other states.
