Hudson has fought for hide and carry reciprocity for years and has argued that current gun laws are so confusing and patchwork that hide and carry holders could be breaking the law by accident.
The proposal, H.R.38, slid through the House on a Republican-heavy 231-198 roll call after a brief debate.

With each tragedy, we lament the loopholes in our federal gun laws. Right now a person has to find out what the law says in each state that they are traveling in so they don't get arrested. New Jersey is one of just 10 states that do not already recognize out-of-state concealed carry permits, which only reinforces the fact that New Jersey remains one of the leaders in understanding the value of tight gun controls.
