Tonight the House of Representatives passed H.R. 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011. The bill would allow individuals with valid state-issued concealed firearm permits or licenses to carry a concealed firearm in any other state that also issues concealed firearm permits or licenses, or in any other state that does not generally prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms.
No longer will your rights start and end at your state’s lines…IF the Senate takes up the bill.
The bill passed with 272 votes in favor, 154 against. 229 Republicans and 43 Democrats supported the legislation. 7 Republicans and 147 Democrats voted against it.
Barletta, Holden, and Marino all voted for it.
