I am reading a lot of very valid points pro- and against federal regulations of concealed carry. For a long time I lived in a may-issue (read: never-issue) state. I think I know how we can step over the strange regulatory habits in those states. The constitution reads "militia". The anti-gunners take that literally. Well - so be it. Create a national militia. Let anyone who wants to get a background check, take a course in law and use of firearms, and be called a "militiaman/woman". Let them be the "reserve" for law enforcement, and be armed accordingly, this time with no strange limitations. Bad thought - probably... but certainly almost undisputable as far as NY/CA etc are concerned.
