    Congress should force anti-gun governments to obey federal transport laws


    Rep. H. Morgan Griffith, Virginia Republican, has sponsored legislation that would amend current law to make it clear that individuals who transport their guns from state to state may stop for food, gas and vehicle maintenance. They also may seek medical treatment, tend to an emergency, stay overnight and conduct other activities incidental to the transport (without local juristictions caliming they are breaking the law when leagally transporting weapons - like through Wash D.C.).

    These things are legal already, but because the law does not spell it out in explicit detail, gun-grabbing areas take advantage of the ambiguity.

    ......(snip)........Mr. Griffith’s bill now has 37 co-sponsors - including four Democrats - but the House Judiciary Committee has no plans to hold a hearing on the legislation. That needs to change. Congress has a duty to help gun owners exercise their Second Amendment right to travel across this great nation without fear of being thrown in jail. More important, we need to show respect to veterans like Lt. Kim by ensuring others are not put through the same ordeal he suffered.

    Seeing as it's already legal, why pass more laws that will be ignored?

    It is a good "clarification" on the intent of the law ..... which can be used in court, and to prove a "willful" violation of the law by a jurisdiction if they did so..... good deal.

    I would rather keep the Federal Government out of my gun rights, thank you.
