Bill Allowing Concealed Weapons To Cross State Lines Moves To The Senate

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill will debate whether gun owners should be allowed to carry concealed weapons across state lines.

The bill is on its way to the Senate, after being passed by the House Wednesday.

The National Rifle Association says the bill will allow gun owners to travel freely between states without worrying about conflicting state laws.

It would also update the federal background check system, so people who are legally prohibited from having guns cannot buy them.

This is the first gun legislation in Congress since the mass shootings in Las Vegas and Texas.
