Senate to Vote on Cop Concealed Carry Bill

February 27, 2004  | 

A bill dubbed “National Concealed Carry for Cops” is scheduled to go to a vote in the Senate on March 2.

This bill, S. 253, if passed, would allow qualified off-duty and retired law enforcement to carry concealed firearms nationwide. It is the senate companion to H.R. 218, officially called “The Law Enforcement Officer’s Safety Act of 2003.”

Another, larger bill before the senate, S. 1805, the “Lawful Protection of Commerce in Arms Act,” deals with limiting civil liability for gun manufacturers. One of the possible amendments to this bill is S. 253.

Amending S. 253 to the bigger bill, S. 1805, requires a vote of the entire Senate. If enough senators vote yes on amending S. 1805 to include National Concealed Carry for Cops, it could become law this year.

If you are interested in influencing your senators regarding the passage of this bill, contact them before they vote on the issue Tuesday.
