There are just a few weeks left of having the White House and both chambers of Congress all controlled by Republicans.
That means it’s crunch time for those lawmakers who want to see some more of their top priorities get signed into law.
That includes one bill, which deals with gun rights and carrying concealed weapons across state lines.
Gun rights advocates say, this is the last shot – an opportunity to pass in the Senate what the U.S. House of Representatives already did in 2017– a law to allow people with a state issued concealed carry license or permit to conceal a handgun in any other state that allows concealed carry.
“We don’t like the idea that just because we’re going from one state to another our rights change, specifically our right to defend ourself,” said Kevin Michalowski, with U.S. Concealed Carry Association.
