House weighs gun bill as ATF reviews 'bump stock' devices

House weighs gun bill as ATF reviews 'bump stock' devices

"I'm proud of Texas, our history of responsible gun ownership and our requirements for a license to carry that seek to protect the ones we love from abusers, violent offenders, and stalkers", he added.

Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-Conn., called the bill an attempt to undermine states' rights, "hamstring law enforcement and allow risky criminals to walk around with hidden guns anywhere and at any time".

The acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says his agency anticipates being able to exercise regulatory control over devices that allow semi-automatic rifles to fire faster.

A woman who survived the Las Vegas shooting said she remained by the side of one of the victims as he died, even though she had never met him. The bill says, if a state offers a concealed carry license or permit to its own residents, then they would have to recognize the license or permit issued by any other state for visitors to their state.

Heather Gooze tells the Senate Judiciary Committee that she didn't know 23-year-old Jordan McIldoon.

The passage of the bill is a startling development after recent mass shootings that have rocked the nation and sparked calls for tightening, rather than loosening, gun regulations.

"Several years after being shot in the head, I've learned a lot - how to walk again, how to talk again, and how to start each day ready to change the world, " she said in a statement. The legislation permits individuals with a concealed carry permit to carry a concealed firearm in any state that allows it.

The Justice Department announced Tuesday a review of bump stocks to determine whether weapons using them should be considered illegal machine guns under federal law.

Twelve states do not require permits, which means residents of those states could be allowed to carry a concealed weapon in NY without ever having a background check or meeting any other safety requirements.

McMahon was among many city officials who denounced the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (CCRA) for NY state.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act passed the House on a 231-198 vote that largely broke along party lines.

Democrats also criticized Republicans for including a bill on background checks in the concealed-carry legislation.

Rep. Andy Harris, in a statement this week hailing the bill passing the House, said the legislation will in fact make the country safer.

The Air Force has acknowledged that the Texas shooter, Devin Kelley, should have had his name and domestic violence conviction submitted to the National Criminal Information Center database.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the Judiciary Committee's top ranking Democrat, said the uncertainty demands that Congress quickly approve legislation "to ban these unsafe devices".
