"Today's bill ensures Tennesseans who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights will face no undue burden when traveling to gun-friendly states", he said.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a long-debated concealed carry reciprocity bill that would allow licensed gun owners from other states to carry concealed weapons into NY state, something that is not now allowed. Lynn Jenkins, Roger Marshall and Kevin Yoder all voted for the measure, which has been a high priority for the National Rifle Association and other pro-gun groups.

"Even the most careful and knowledgeable concealed carry permit holders find it hard to navigate the current maze of state and local concealed carry laws", Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), author of the bill, said.
