Chris Murphy says national concealed-carry bill is dead on arrival in the Senate

House Republicans combined the bill bolstering the National Instant Criminal Background Check System’s reporting process with a national reciprocity law for concealed firearm permits, which is likely to be dismissed as dead-on-arrival in the Senate, according to one of the co-authors of the background-check bill.

The House is slated to vote on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 and the Fix NICS Act on Wednesday, which are combined to be passed together. Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada has an amendment that would remove the bill aimed at reciprocating concealed-carry permits across state lines, though it is likely to be axed by the Rules Committee.

Murphy, a Democrat, told Business Insider on Monday ” combining the two doesn’t change” where Democrats and Republicans stand on the polarizing gun debate.

“I don’t think there’s anybody that opposes the concealed-carry provision that’s gonna vote for the bill because it has Fix NICS on it,” Murphy said. “I think it’s interesting that Republicans feel like they have to — the Republicans are worried about the optics of passing the concealed-carry bill without other provisions. But I don’t think concealed carry has the votes in the Senate before and it doesn’t now.”
