    Thumbs down Be Careful What You Wish For

    My jury's out until I can read a final bill AFTER it goes both to the Senate and then then Conference Committee. I think there's a potentially huge amount to lose here, or at least "put the issue in play" (e.g. federal expansion into the arena) and the downside is the loss of convenience for us when we travel?

    Right now, I'll vote for the inconvenience over more federal meddling.

    I'm seen sausage get made too many times in my life.......

    The way it reads now appears to be similar to driver's liscenses. Each state is in control of how they issue permits, but everyone must recognize each other. Local laws apply.

    Well, I have a permit, obey the laws, etc, and if I drive to Missouri from Indiana, I want to be able to carry on the interstate through Illinois. If it takes national reciprocity for it to happen, I'm all for it.

    I'd be fine with this law if they took out section 2. Section 2 lets people carry in states that otherwise do not permit it, which forces federal judgements into what should be a state's rights issue. I forsee bad things in the next 20-30 years if this is the case.

    Get rid of Section 2, and it makes perfect sense, and I'm all for it.

    For the record, I am TREMENDOUSLY inconvenineced by multiple CCW licenses.. I live in a shall issue state, but work weekly in two may issue states that are tough to get- MA and RI. And needless to say, I get there via NH.

    I'll still take inconvenience over trumping state's rights any day.

    I think the Fed. gov't has the rights on weapons when they put that second amendment into the constitution, something about the right of the people shall not be infringed. So I'm not so sure it's a state's right to begin with.

    Even if it is a state's right this wouldn't be the first time the fed gov't stepped in. The drinking age is a state's right, but the federal government found a way around that one.

    The main problem I see for those no issue or may issue states is people could easily get an out of state PA or FL liscense and then just carry with all the rights, thus circumventing their states issuing process and laws. But l'll beat that dead horse a little more in stating, if you are willing to go through the process then it's a good bet your not going to abuse your rights.

    A short while back, I'd have thought this bill was just a "pie-in-the-sky" vote-catcher for whoever backed it.

    But now that states with some form of carry permit are in a clear majority, it certainly does seem possible.
