H.R. 800 or S. 397? That's the question.

It was S. 397 complete with the asinine Gun Lock provision.

It was S. 397 complete with the asinine Gun Lock provision.

Indeed, I just got it from the horse's mouth. "Commenting on the passage of this landmark legislation, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said, 'This is an historic victory for the NRA. Freedom, truth and justice prevailed, and today S. 397 is one step closer to becoming the law of the land.'"

We'll have to take some solace in the fact that the NRA is still pushing for shall issue, concealed carry privileges, including Alaska's new concealed carry right, in all states, and uniform state law pre-emption over local gun control laws. Here are references about body armor standards which pertains to the other amendment in S. 397 to study ammo and LEO body armor.

A half step forward, politics prevailed.
