What could possibly go wrong?


I truly wonder if these people are crazy:

Gun owners would be allowed to carry concealed weapons around the country under new legislation introduced in the Senate.

The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would allow gun owners who have a concealed carry permit in their home state to bring their firearms in any other state with concealed-carry laws.

“This operates more or less like a driver’s license,” Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the second-ranking Republican in the upper chamber, told The Hill. “So, for example, if you have a driver’s license in Texas, you can drive in New York, in Utah and other places, subject to the laws of those states.”
Cornyn, a Texas Republican, said this would “eliminate some of the ‘gotcha moments,’ where people inadvertently cross state lines” with guns they are legally allowed to carry in their home state.

The National Rifle Association endorsed the bill Thursday, calling it a “much-needed solution to a real problem for gun owners.”

  1. “Subject to the laws of those states.” States rights, but not states rights.
    Why shouldn’t we have a standardized (national) concealed-carry law? Or a standardized (national) marriage law? It makes sense.
    Lots of people are opposed to guns and that’s their right. Lots of people are in favor of guns and that’s their right. Anybody who believes that we can outlaw guns in this country by passing a federal law is asking for a revolution and all of the bloodshed that would follow.
    Society stands no chance of eliminating guns until it eliminates violence. Get rid of violence and there will be no desire to own a gun.

  2. Great video! The NRA has become a mere sales channel for the gun industry. I’m all for standardization, but this proposal endorsed by the NRA is obviously a sneaky way to undermine, through federal law, the efforts of those states with better gun control by forcing them to accept the consequences of poor, limited or no control in other states.
