The United States House of Representatives has passed H.R. 38, the national concealed carry reciprocity act.

The vote was 321 to 198 on Wednesday, 6 December. The fate of the bill now goes to the United States Senate.

The official results will show up at in a few hours.

In the Senate, it is uncertain if enough Democrats will vote for the bill to overcome the 60 vote fillibuster barrier. Eight Democrat Senators are from states with either Shall Issue or Constitutional Carry law in their states.

Six of the Democrat Senatores  are from Shall Issue concealed carry states, and two are from Constitutional Carry states. They are:

Tammy Baldwin, Wisconsin, Shall Issue

Bill Nelson, Florida, Shall Issue

Jon Tester, Montana, Shall Issue

Heidi Heitkamp, North Dakota, Shall Issue

Sherrod Brown, Ohio, Shall Issue

Joe Donnelly, Indiana, Shall issue

Joe Manchin, West Virginia, Constitutional Carry

Claire McCaskill, Missouri, Constitutional Carry

The way to bet is that the above Senators will vote for the bill when they can be assured it will not pass, thus allowing themselves cover in their state when they are accused of being against the exercise of the Second Amendment.

It will likely fail in the Senate with 55 to 59 votes for it.
