Is today the big day?

The House is poised to pass a bill that allows concealed carry permit holders from one state to legally carry their guns in any other state — legislation the National Rifle Association has called “their highest legislative priority” in 2017.

Voted out of the House Rules Committee by a vote of 8-3 along party lines, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act also passed the House Judiciary Committee in a party-line vote last week. The Fix NICS Act was added to the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act despite efforts to separate the two by Democrats. The joint legislation will be voted on as one as early as Wednesday.


I don’t have any business or any reason to travel to any state that doesn’t allow my Tennessee permit so the only reason I want to see this motherfucker pass is just to watch places like New Jersey, Massachusetts and California shit all over themselves.
You just fucking watch, they’ll come up with responses like “You can carry your gun but it must be unloaded” which is bullshit seeing as an unloaded gun is about as effective as a rock, or one that might actually be effective like “You can carry a gun but it must be loaded with state sanctioned ammunition” such as FMJ or something like that.
Regardless, they’re gonna be pissed as hell about it.

    We are in total agreement

    Back before concealed carry was passed in Texas and laws began to be straightened out, a friend was stopped on his way to a shooting match. Back then, you could only transport a gun in your car if you were “travelling” (there was no legal definition of what that meant), on your way to a competition or for hunting, or on your way to a gunsmith. If you were stopped, those conditions were only a defence against prosecution. The officer arrested him and confiscated his guns. When his lawyer told the DA that he would use that part of the law at his trial, her words were “I don’t care what the law says, no one carries a gun in my county.” I suspect the more panicky states will have that same mentality. In my friends case, the charges were dropped when his lawyer filed to have the entire membership of the gun club subpoenaed as witnesses. That alone would have blown the DA’s budget for the year. It still took six months to get his guns back. The sheriff that arrested him wouldn’t release them until a judge issued an order requiring it. They’d been in his trunk the entire time.

    I’ve read house leadership will insert a rider that will allow a bureaucrat at certain agencies to include your name to the no gun list if certain conditions are met. This will be without due process, similar to 0bama’s inclusion of social security recipients who could not manage their own finances. Fix-NICS is what it’s called. In other words, a poison pill.

      Comrade Schumer and comrade Fiencommie were co-sponsors. That should be all you need to know. But of course they will not vote for passage.

    This bill is not a good thing. Not even a little bit.

  5. Tom in NC says:

    Reciprocity- Si

    Fix NICS – No Way!!

  6. Unclezip says:

    Blu got it right – the bill has almost all the Brady crap tacked on, plus the Obozo administrative crap. Next roll – anyone in government can take your rights.

  7. Muzzle Blast says:

    Constitutional carry is the only thing that’ll do it for me … anything else is just more chickenshit regulation.

  8. GI-had Joe says:

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Their are too many rino’s in the senate to call this done. However, I too look forward to the absolute shit attack in Kalifornia. Not unlike Christmas morning, anticipation is everything.

  9. M. Sage says:

    Eh, if they do the “no hollow points” thing, load something flat-nosed. It won’t expand, but at least it’ll track straight through, unlike round nosed FMJ.

    • Dale T McCreary says:

      I think Hornady makes a round called the Bulldog with is FMJ, flat point, but has some silcon substance under the jacket and the jacket is scored so that it will expand and does so reliably, it’s like their critical defense ammo but in fmj form with a flat nose.

  10. Sunny says:

    From a friend of mine:
    There are no rights being expanded or protected within HR 38. It’s just another among many Trojan Horses government has created intending to get gun owners to volunteer to have their rights (such as they are) replaced by the authority of government to regulate. Don’t be fooled. Don’t consent.

    This is being touted as the bestest thing ever! It is not.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
