House looks to expand right to carry concealed weapons as gun-control advocates hold vigils

Source: USA Today

The House is expected to take up gun legislation this week to expand concealed carry rights, the National Rifle Association’s top legislative priority, as gun-control advocates hold vigils across the country for victims of gun violence.

The move comes a week before the fifth anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that killed 26 people in Newtown, Conn., and follows two of the deadliest shootings in modern U.S. history. In October, a gunman killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 in Las Vegas. A month later, another gunman opened fire in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing 25 people including a pregnant woman whose unborn baby also died.

“They are being insensitive and basically irresponsible for moving forward with the NRA’s No. 1 bill,” said Po Murray, chair of the Newtown Action Alliance. “We’re not shocked and we’re not surprised by their actions but we’re pretty outraged.”

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would require each state to recognize concealed carry permits from every other state — as they would a driver’s license — regardless of different permitting standards. Residents of states that don't require permits to carry a concealed weapon would be able to carry their weapons in other states that allow concealed carry, as long as they abide by local laws.

4. So cool...I didn't know that. Thanks for the link. OK, I go with gun control in areas populated

with XXXXXXXXX ppl and lift the gun controls for areas with xxx ppl. That wouldn't be my preference, but I could live with it

7. Why don't the MOFO'S just do what they want and get it over with.

You know, Allow everybody to have guns and NO rules attached to owning them or where or who can carry them? No registering whatsoever, no age limit, criminal record not counted, where carried not an issue, what type is allowed not an issue, and where you shoot them not an issue.

8. I work with a girl who's parents refuse to visit her in California because of this

 

She just can't impress upon her father that they aren't going to face armed resistance getting from John Wayne Airport to Newport Beach. But no, until he can carry his gun he isn't coming to California.

They also bought her a GPS emergency locator device for her trip to a lawless office park in Toulouse France and declined her invitation to join her in Paris after she was finished with work.

9. What about the Tenth Admendment?

They are always howling about states rights except when it doesn’t suit them.

10. But will they allow the public to conceal carry in the halls of Congress?

If they did, it might lead to a catastrophe that would hit them personally, and we could finally restore some sanity in our gun laws.
