House passes bill allowing concealed carry across state lines

Critics argue that the bill would relax laws in areas with tight gun control.

— -- The House of Representatives passed a controversial measure Wednesday that would allow gun owners with concealed carry permits from one state to carry them in other jurisdictions.

Gun control advocates argue that the proposal would effectively loosen gun control laws in tightly restricted locations such as New York City.

In the Senate, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act will need to clear a 60-vote threshold to pass.
