Amen! CCW permit holders need to keep take every opportunity to try to convince any oppostion we run across to understand what the issues are and why it is important that citizens be able to carry concealed. I bring it up to people, selectively, and work on them until they at least start thinking about the issue logically.Originally posted by silvercorvette
Here is my take on it. When HR 218 was signed into law some people were upset because it was only for cops. First of all LEAA fought 12 long years to get it, and second it should offer encouragement as an example as to what can be done if you fight for it. It may take 12 years to get but it will never happen if it isn’t fought for. Usually once you are able to get the door open a small crack, getting it all the way open becomes easier. The LEAA has proven it is possible if you are willing to continue the fight.
I am a retired cop so I have it, but before the law was signed I was looking into getting a Florida permit. From what I understand Florida is easy to get and having a Florida permit makes you good to go with reciprocity in about 26 to 28 statesOriginally posted by Betty
I\'d love to have complete reciprocity.
Oh, man, that\'s close. I hope you have called, written, and emailed every representative you have espousing the virtues of law abiding citizens carrying concealed (and all that). We will be rooting for you, reg440.Originally posted by reg440
Unfortunatly I happen to live in WI which does not allow for cc. They have been trying to get it passed but it doesn\'t help when you have a liberal governer. Back in 04 they failed to turn over Doyle\'s vetoe by one vote.
Very true. FOP (and LEAA originally) drove HR218.Originally posted by Rickman
There needs to be an association, similar to the NRA, that addresses the issues of concealed carry and represents the interests of those that do. Strong lobbying is what it will take to get it through Congress, but it could be done.
