    Ehhhhhhhhh NO. The Fed has no business regulating the 2A. Giving them a foothold to dictate to states what they must do concerning firearms can be nothing but bad.

    Wondering if this is just a "roll call" bill to make an issue of 2A (worked this last year) and couple it with the health care debacle that will go nuclear in September when the new cancellations come out...

    Yeah all I am seeing is the FOPA of 86 all over again that is my worry .. its-a-trap.jpg


    If that is all it does to the letter say " if you have a permit to carry you can carry anywhere " then maybe I will be cool. But you think the fifdome and kindome of HI/CA/NY/NJ etc etc will be happy if three serfe can get a permit from AZ/FL/UT and carry .

    We shall see .. It would be nice if there were no tricks

    If they want to get pro 2A then start introducing bills to repeal the NFA and other unconstitutional gun regulations. Undoing what they have illegally already done is the only constitutional thing they can do. Adding some other reg pro or anti is out of their authority granted by the 2A. Smoke and mirrors. Again

    There are a number of states that would cry to high heaven if this went through and try to make it as difficult as possible. NY, CA, IL, MA, MD, and maybe CO come to mind.

    I too am leery of things like this that sound good. Almost too good to be true. There's gotta be a catch in there somewhere. I know they tried this last year and it was close but no cigar. You know Dirty Harry Reid won't let it come up for a vote and obambam would veto it anyway.

    Note that all co-sponsors are republicans?

    They know it won't go through -- they also know that 2014 is an election year and perhaps some of them are running for reelection in pro 2nd amendment districts, so this would make them look good to their constituents even though it won't pass.

    It's Washington. It's all politics.

    Having the federal government involved in this scares the hell out of me. I would say the same as you.

    If things were as they should be, yes, my CPL would be good anywhere just like my driver's license. Full faith and credit. It shouldn't take more laws for that.

    Keeping this at the state level is like a last line of defense. Getting the feds involved is putting power over my rights in the hands of a small group of people too far removed from local responsibility and accountability to have any hope they will PROTECT those rights instead of blowing them around with whatever the current political wind in Washington DC is.

    I try and get a job done every day to keep our fighting men and women equipped with the tools they need, and whenever anyone from DC gets involved in the process things go downhill quickly.

    Don't want their "help".

    Given the current climate in CO, I SERIOUSLY doubt it. Its really getting old to keep lumping CO in with the "those" states. CO has one of the better CCW programs, with very few arbitrary "no carry" locations, unlike many other states with stupid restrictions on restaurants, bars, public gatherings, parks and confusing rules like "51%".

    I swear, some people on this board think that their magical state is somehow immune to the plauge that struck CO this past year. All it takes is one idiot physcopath to pick your local school, mall or theater for his fun and games and all bets are off in your supposed 2A wonderland, especially if there is even a hint of a purple nature to your state (OR,WA,VA, AZ, OH, MI, NC, VT, NH, ME, NM, NV all come to mind immediately).

    Sorry for the rant...

    I didn't mean to pick on CO. I just know they still have a dem majority which can still cause issues. I'm sure the good people of CO will correct this at the next election possible to do so.

    You are right too. The anti-gun crowd loves to use emotion to get more anti-gun laws passed. Forget logic. It's not in their vocabulary.

    "Odds of this getting this through a Democrat-controlled Senate are iffy, but might stand a slightly better chance than they did last last year. Red state Democrats already being battered over their Obamacare 'votes don’t want to risk alienating a rapidly-growing shooting community during the mid-terms elections with a lame-duck President."

    Let him and the 50 States come up with a bill covering all States you will be restricted to carrying it n a locked vault no ammo. And have to stop at each state border and declare it.
    No thanks. He is just looking for a few votes.

    Someone help me out here. My Drivers Lic. is State issued and it is good in every State in the Union. Where is the Feds control over Driver Lic. Guess I'm a little slow but I can't see the difference.
