    Petition to the Whitehouse, H.R. 822

    Petition to the Whitehouse, H.R. 822

    Here is a petition to the Whitehouse to "Support H.R. 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011." The goal is to have 5000 signatures by October 22, 2011.

    To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a national standard in accordance with which nonresidents of a State may carry concealed firearms in the other states.
    The overwhelming majority of individuals who exercise the right to carry firearms in their own States and other States have proven to be law-abiding, and such carrying has been demonstrated to provide crime prevention or crime resistance benefits for the licensees and for others.The Congress finds that preventing the lawful carrying of firearms by individuals who are traveling outside their home State interferes with the constitutional right of interstate travel, and harms interstate commerce.Among the purposes of this Act is the protection of the rights, privileges, and immunities guaranteed to a citizen of the U.S.A.

    Question - how would this affect states (cough... cough.. Illinois... cough, DC, cough..) who don't allow any kind of permit? Would they be required to honor another states permit? While I admit for my own selfish reasons that would be great because I might finally be able to visit the smithsonian, I also hate to restrict a state's right to make its own decisions (even if they are bad decisions)

    Keep the Feds away from my guns. They will just mess it up. Someone who doesn't like guns will just decide one day that we we shouldn't have them and "POOF" there they all go.

    Please take a look at this from G.O.A. this morning...before you start singing the praises of HR 822
    It make a whole lot more sense, it's all of the good with none of the bad...

    Common sense alternative to H.R. 822 (carry reciprocity)

    This will work and addresses those states that don't want to allow their citizenry 2A rights.

    House Committee to vote on CCW Reciprocity Soon!


    The House Judiciary Committee will soon be voting on legislation that will guarantee the right of citizens to carry firearms out-of-state. And the vote could come as early as today or tomorrow!

    GOA has alerted you to H.R. 822 -- introduced by Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) -- and explained the weaknesses in his bill. Many of you have taken action on our alerts and informed your Representative that there is a better approach.

    That approach has been championed by Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia, the author of H.R. 2900 -- or the Secure Access to Firearms Enhancement (SAFE) Act. The Broun bill has several advantages:

    It would allow residents of California, New Jersey and other “may issue” states to get out-of-state carry permits (say, from Florida or Utah) and carry in their home states -- an benefit they would not enjoy under the Stearns’ bill;
    Broun also protects the right of gun owners in non-permit states like Vermont and allows them to carry out-of-state without a permit; and
    Finally, the Broun bill does not rely on an expansive, erroneous interpretation of the Commerce Clause. Passing gun legislation that uses the Commerce Clause for authority could undercut efforts at promoting Firearms Freedom Act legislation throughout the country which specifically declares the Commerce Clause has no authority over the production of intrastate guns.

    We need to continue putting heat on Congress, now that this reciprocity legislation is beginning to move. You’ve already sent your emails, but now it’s time to change things up and send postcards. If the House committee passes the Stearns bill, then it will probably come to the floor of the House some time next month.

    So there is plenty of time to inundate Representatives’ offices with postcards and mail -- urging them to support H.R. 2900 -- or to amend the Stearns bill so that it contains the gun owners’ protections in the Broun bill.

    So, GOA members, please be looking for the latest mailing from GOA headquarters which should begin arriving this week. And please take the enclosed postcard and send it to your Representative. Then, take the extra two postcards and have pro-gun family members and friends send them, as well. That will multiply your efforts by 200%.

    Petitioning the WH? Right. And while we're at it, whine about Holder stonewalling Congress.

    It won't get a read, so save your powder. Our energies are spent better elsewhere, like getting a new occupant in the WH.

    In any event, I tried to register and the link they sent me to click on to verify my email was not tied to anything. I gave it my best shot, but I can't sign anything if I can't register.
