Thursday, December 07, 2017

The House of Representatives passed a bill that would enable gun owners who legally carry concealed firearms in one state to carry them in the other 49 states, sending a major expansion of gun rights to the Senate, where it faces deep opposition from Democrats.

States rights!!!! I remember when conservatives claimed to believe in States rights. This bill should be declared unconstitutional and I wouldn't be surprised if even the extreme right wing nut case court we have did.

The vast majority of gun victims are rednecks and criminals. This is good.

I guess that trumps the constitution along with amendment 2.

Baloney. This is eliminating state's rights that states have held since the beginning of our country.

And it makes me laugh at conservatives who for years have cried "states rights" until insurance companies wanted to sell junk insurance across state lines. Today's conservatives do not actually believe in states rights, just be honest and I won't laugh at you so much.

Any word on when Congress will allow guns in Congress?

House passes concealed carry reciprocity

Does your Baloney come with a pickle, because you're making a big deal of it..... ?

From the link:

There is no federal statutory law concerning the issuance of concealed-carry permits. All fifty states have passed laws allowing qualified individuals to carry certain concealed firearms in public, either without a permit or after obtaining a permit from a designated government authority at the state and/or local level.

Since all 50 states have laws allowing CCW why not make it so you only need one license for all 50 states?

There's been word on that. The House is expected to move to ban them, after the ATF comes back with the same exact explanation it gave to the Obama admin with Obama appointees of why they shouldn't be banned.

"The Justice Department announced Tuesday that it has begun a federal rule-making process that could reinterpret the legality of certain bump fire stock devices, a piece of equipment that enabled the Las Vegas gunman in October to fire on concertgoers more rapidly, mimicking automatic fire.

The announcement comes the day before the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is set to testify before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the device and amid calls from legislators to prevent the future sale of the part."

"Bump stocks were approved for sale under a 2010 memo from the ATF's Firearms Technology Branch. Because the device "performs no automatic mechanical function when installed" and the shooter must still apply "constant" forward and rearward pressure to a gun equipped with one, the memo said the agency found the bump stock was a "firearm part," and therefore not regulated under federal gun laws."

So by that reasoning Pinky,

If a gay couple gets married, all states must recognize it?

This means everyone every where can be armed at all times with zero training.

Multiple states are free carry states, no restrictions.

I believe Vermont is one of them, there are around 6 or 8 of them.

This bill means that ole Johnny Bag-0-Donuts who doesn't even live in Vermont has a Vermont concealed carry license --- none --- and it's good in California.

Wonderful.

Why don't you gun fondlers ask Congress to van gun-free zones?
I hear from the high capacity magazines sniffers that most mass shootings happen in gun-free zones.
So.. why don't you demand this be fixed?
Seriously. What good is concealed carry if it makes you a criminal in a gun free zone?

#21 Snoofy: What good is concealed carry if it makes you a criminal in a gun free zone?

Since most mass shootings in the U.S. happen in Gun Free zones (or No Defense Zones, as I call them), I tend to avoid places where I cannot legally conceal carry. It may not hurt the bottom line of a business but at least my pesos don't go where I may be a literal fish-in-a-barrel when Johnny Nutjob/Abdul Jihadi drops by in an attempt to make news headlines.

Otherwise I conceal carry so as to have a much better chance at defending myself from any person who may have violent intent within my area.

#6 Sniper: Run for the hills, it's going to be the wild west all over again.

Like when Florida was nicknamed the "Gunshine State" with anti-CCW folks crying a river about the upcoming blood in the streets and wild west shootouts over parking spaces. Except it didn't happen when they went to a 'shall issue' CCW process.

Recently a friend was reminding me of all the lying hoopla from the media when the Glock 'all plastic' gun first became popular in the U.S. The anti-gun leftists were whining that it would pass through metal detectors without a peep. One local gun shop put up a sign out front urging people to come see an actual gun that was completely plastic: it was a squirt gun. LOL!

How about a right to have a radar in your car so you knows where speed traps are?

I know some states don't allow a radar in your car.

It would be cool to be allowed in one state and have that reciprocal.

They also settled that the 2nd amendment is an individual right. This is in line with allowing individuals to exercise their rights throughout the entirety of the US.

Oh wait, you don't like that one so it's "different", right?

And gay marriage isn't even mentioned in the constitution. How does that work?

#31 | Posted by Sniper at 2017-12-09 12:42 PM | Reply

Because the Constitution doesn't and can't work that way?

#32 | Posted by jpw at 2017-12-09 01:12 PM | Reply

This must have some profit motive, probably large-scale manufacturing and distribution rackets, skirting state law intentions.

I do like that the second amendment is still law of the land, but it means "conservatives" are talking out both sides of their mouth regarding "State rights over Federal mandate" argument against gay rights and should be considered absolute liars.

States rights doesn't rule over the constitution. The constitution is the law for the entire USA. You don't get to pick and choose which part you like and which part you don't like.
