Skip to comments.Boxer to Introduce Common-Sense Concealed Firearms Act of 2011(Barf Alert)
Posted on 01/24/2011 4:14:28 AM PST by marktwain
Washington, D.C. January 22, 2011 U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) today announced that next week she will introduce the Common-Sense Concealed Firearms Act of 2011, which would require all states that allow residents to carry concealed weapons in public to have minimum standards for granting permits.
Senator Boxer said, "The tragic events in Tucson earlier this month are a reminder of why we need common-sense gun laws. This measure will establish reasonable permitting standards for Americans who wish to carry concealed firearms. According to a recent poll, more than 60 percent of respondents believe there should be a reasonable permitting process for those who wish to carry concealed firearms."
Senator Boxer's legislation would require all states that allow residents to carry concealed weapons to establish permitting processes that would include meaningful consultation with local law enforcement authorities to determine whether the permit applicant is worthy of the public trust and has shown good cause to carry a concealed firearm.
Currently, two states do not permit residents to carry concealed firearms, while three states, including Arizona, allow residents to carry concealed firearms in public without a permit. The other 45 states require residents to obtain permits to carry concealed firearms, but the majority of these states would not meet the standard set in this bill.
Senator Boxer plans to introduce the legislation when the Senate reconvenes next week.
I’m betting this particular Federal “permission slip” will die in committee...Oops, wait, this is the Senate...
Well, good luck with this making it through the House...
Man, don’t you just love gridlock...
When nothing actually gets done up there, we are SOOOOO much better off...
She can take this “common sense” and shove it...
If the left can control a right, it becomes no right at all.
FU you leftist whore... keep your demonicrat hands off of our Constitution and spend some time trying to save that putrid leftist mecca state of yours.
Hmmm, Let’s guess what questions the good Senator Boxer (aka the “anti-maam”) would have us answer.
1. Q: Do you own a gun? Ans: yes Police: you fail
2. Q: Do you believe in Global Warming? Ans: no, Police: you fail.
3. Q: Do you sort your garbage? Ans: no, Police: you fail
4. Q: are you a member of a socialist organization? Ans: no, Police: you fail
5. Q: Do you believe in the Constitution and God? Ans: yes, Police: jailer!!
Wow...don’t you just love the idiocy of these moonbat asshats? Just because you name something “common-sense” doesn’t make it so. I think she should name her proposed bill the “I-am-an-extremely-wealthy-moonbat-who-doesn’t-have-a-clue-about anything” bill. Other than the entertainment value of her idiocy is there any rational reason for her representing anyone? What a complete pathetic fool. (Please note the “new tone”)
And exactly where in the Constitution do you find the authority to push this nonsense Ms boxer? Do you understand Ms boxer that many, many Americans view this proposal as an attack on our liberty. And you want civility! Are you serious?
LULZ! That is a contradiction within itself: How the frak can anything coming from BoxerIdiot be “common snese”? NOT! =.=
The ONLY common sense rule governing firearms is the 2nd amandment to the Constitution. All others are for the express purpose of depriving Americans of the right to self defense.
Hey Mrs. Boxer. I have an idea. Rather than coming up with some new gun laws, why not just make it illegal to murder somebody? Oh, wait, I guess that's already illegal. Well, what about a law that will keep someone with a concealed carry permit from murdering someone? Oh, wait, the guy who did the shooting didn't bother with getting a concealed carry permit. OK, well how about a law that would require you to have a concealed carry permit before you could carry a gun. Hey, that would stop all the murderers and bank robbers who currently commit those crimes without a permit from committing any more crimes!
You gotta love the left First their already in place gun control requiring background checks failed and failed big time. Now instead of fixing tht problem, or even just having the local sherrifs do their jobs when it comes to reports about mentally unstable people, they just want to make another law that will do aboslutely nothing to prevent would be criminals from doing what they are going to do.
So Babs is saying this is a direct result of Tucson....I wasn’t aware David Loughtner had a conceal carry permit...HE DIDN’T! This is such a stupid excuse!
The recurring theme, evident over the past few years in particular, is that it is NOT the lack of laws and regulations that is the problem, it is the expectation that the government bureaucrats can enforce anything in a coherent manner.
1.) BP /MMS
2.) Katrina / FEMA
3.) Wall St / SEC
Need I go on?
The nation needs better care for the criminally insane, but that would reduce the liberal ranks.
What the left "gives" they can take away.
While many states were passing concealed carry during the 1990s, the federal government was baning rifles.
She is just playing to her base in a state that is "may issue" concealed carry.
The Civil War took away most States rights. Boxer wants to take away some more.
Madam Boxer is trying to set the table that states just hand out CCW permits like candy. She wants to require all states that allow residents to carry to have minimum standards for granting permits. So, requiring a criminal background check and passing a proficiency test isn’t enough? Just another excuse to dilute the 2nd and 10th ammendment by another dimrat. The minimum federal standards would be impossible to meet and have the ultimate result of disarming the population by regulation.
But I would bet that she has armed security.
all for me, none for thee.
I think the grabboids have learned from their experience with the AWB. They will use Tucson to ban magazines holding more than 10 rounds, and that law will pass, count on it. And it won’t have a sunset.
The only question is, will our currently owned mags be grandfathered?
But “high cap” mags over 10 rounds will be banned by 2012 and forever after. Count on it.
Al becuzz one dumbass Sherrifff wouldn’t do his job.
How about a “Common Sense Concealed Communist Act of 2011” being introduced in the House?
I know, but it pisses me off. They are just trying to catch Americans off guard
by using any crazy lunatic going on a spree. One of their own lunatics.
I think murder was already illegal in Tucson. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.
Molon labe, senator idiot
With the Senate and the White House in socialist hands, damn right gridlock is a wonderful thing.
Forgot to include
6. “did you vote for Obama?” Ans:no Police: fail.
7. Do you fall into any of the DHS domestic extremist categories? Ans: yes, veteran, pro-life, pro-Consisution, pro-2A. police: FEMA camp red list.
Didn't you know? Concealed carry has a VERY BIG impact on Interstate Commerce!
Mine will be by the power invested in me by the Second Ammendment.
I think Mr. Loughtner DID have a conceal carry permit.
the ban will only happen if we allow it to happen.
The term "common-sense" when used by gun control advocates has long been defined as a total prohibition on gun ownership by anyone other than police, military, and those with special governmental privileges.
A couple months ago, this would have become law. Elections have consequences.
I find it absolutely repugnant that anyone would exploit that tragedy for political gain. Boxer has no decorum, no respect and no legitimacy on this issue.
She should be ashamed to even try to use the Tucson shooting to her gain. Talk about dancing on graves. Does she have any shred of class about her at all?
Bad idea. If any classes or tests are required, then the government can make it impossible to get the classes by limiting them due to "Budget constraints." and offering the tests once every two years. Any barrier to the issue process can be raised to impossible heights by malicious anti-gun bureaucrats.
How can that poor excuse of a “representative” even use the words “common sense” when she herself doesn’t have enough sense to place on a pinhead?
The reason we have a right to bear arms is to keep the
government in line with the constitution. When the
government wants to step outside of the constitutional guidelines they have to neutralize anything that is in the way. Throughout history, tyrants and dictators have always
suppressed the peoples ability to defend themselves. This is
what it is and has been all along. They fear an educated and
Common sense and Barbara Boxer? She is the opposite of the term common sense. She knows not what it is nor can common sense exist in her small liberal fantasy world.
She wouldn’t know common sense if it bit her on her Boxer butt.....
She an her kind had congress an a potus that could have passed this on any Sunday for the past 2 years. Just putting the onus on the right.... Rats are obvious in their fake outrage.
Doom on their games....
Stay Safe !
Don't you know that there is no difference between the parties? At least that is what I am always told here.
Uniform rules for CC would be good, but the way the feds do things no thanks.
I can live with the rules here in fly over country.
In California, concealed permits require “good cause” — which is why nobody no politically well connected can get one.
Feinstein and Boxer can pack or have armed body guards, but their attitude towards the “little people” is more like #$#$#$% you, peons!
Didnt the first set of common-sense gun laws. Do the trick?
What about the second set? Third?
Isnt it curious how the gradually destruction of freedom doesnt help matters, does it?
Every time Leftists come out with a new way to take away our freedoms, they never seem to work as claimed and only make things worse, requiring a repeat of the entire process.
Maybe each of these new anti-Liberty initiatives should really be called Common-Insanity?
Well, and the complete and utter disregard on the part of the feds for the Constitutional scheme for what issues and powers go to which branches and levels of government. Even if something IS a good idea, that doesn't mean "good idea" supersedes the Constitution about which part of government, if any, may deal with the issue.
(Disclaimer: NOT implying this one is a good idea.)
In most counties, I hear Kali's actually classified as "probably won't issue".
****Hmmm, Lets guess what questions the good Senator Boxer (aka the anti-maam) would have us answer.***
Want to carry a gun? Answer this question!
“HOW many bubbles are there in a bar of soap?”
Naw, this is Southern Arizona, baby! Shoot at will! (Actually we don't have any guys named "Will" left, but do your best)
