Concealed-Carry OK for Violent Criminals
A yes vote was to add an exemption for violent criminals to the bill.

Voting 190 for and 236 against, the House on Dec. 6, 2017, refused to amend HR 38 (above) so that it would deny protection to concealed-carry permit holders who have been convicted of a violent crime within the preceding three years. Under the amendment, these individuals would be prevented from carrying a concealed, loaded handgun in any state other than their own whose laws would deny a permit based on a conviction for the same crime.

Sponsor Mike Thompson, D-Calif., said a vote for his amendment "is a pro-states' rights, pro-Second Amendment and anti-criminal vote."

Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., called the amendment a Democratic attempt "to hamper the passage of this important legislation."
