LaMalfa Gun Bill Passes House

A bill co-sponsored by Nevada County’s Congressman Doug LaMalfa to ease gun restrictions has passed the House. H-R 38, also known as the ‘Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act’, would allow a qualified individual to possess a concealed handgun in another state that allows individuals to carry concealed firearms. In a news release, LaMalfa said: “If a law-abiding citizen is legally licensed to carry a gun in one state, they should be allowed to in every state. This is about uniformity and personal protection when traveling across state lines. A widely cited study by Northwestern University determined that legal firearms help to prevent around 2.1 million crimes per year. This legislation protects the constitutional rights of the millions of law-abiding gun owners in America that try to follow the rules.”. The bill passed largely along party lines, with only six Democrats voting for it, and 14 Republicans against it.
