Proposed Federal Firearm Legislation HB38

  this is an pro-gun bill
Legislation Overview

Title: Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Subject: Crime and law enforcement: Civil actions and liability: Firearms and explosives: Forests, forestry, trees: Intergovernmental relations: Judicial procedure and administration: Land use and conservation: Legal fees and court costs: Parks, recreation areas, trails: State and local government operations: Wilderness and natural areas, wildlife refuges, wild rivers, habitats

Description: Establishes a federal statutory framework to regulate the carry or possession of concealed firearms across state lines. Specifically, an individual who is eligible to carry a concealed firearm in one state may carry or possess a concealed handgun (other than a machine gun or destructive device) in another state that allows its residents to carry concealed firearms. It sets forth requirements for the lawful concealed carry across state lines. The bill preempts most state and local laws related to concealed carry and establishes a private right of action for a person adversely affected by interference with a concealed-carry right established by this bill.

Session: 117th Congress

Last Action: Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.

Last Action Date: March 1, 2021
