Skip to comments.Guns: This isnít Salt Lake City (States' Rights Good all of a sudden)

That would mean that a permit from Utah, a state with notably lax standards for concealed-carry permits, as well as permits from every other gun-toting state, would be valid in Massachusetts. Under the latest version of the bill, people with out-of-state permits would be allowed to carry guns on Massachusetts streets even if state laws would otherwise make it illegal for them even to possess a firearm.

States’ Rights for Massachusetts...but not for Alabama.
The Denver Post has a similar editorial. Its all so predictable with liberals saying the same thing all over the country: gun rights bad, federalism good! If free speech rights were treated like guns are by the states, those hypocrites would be urging the swift passage of a national reciprocity law. What it boils down to is rights for me but not for thee.
And so of course,,,Utah and all the others should not be forced to recognoze a Massachustetts gay marriage? Mayby they are onto something hahahaaha
They still don’t think we will play their way,, do they?
They want to do that... but then again, they only respect states’ rights when it suits them.
ok guys,, forgive my spellling, havent had coffee yet. Butr the thought was good,,huh?
It’s like poker, “Ok, ill see your gay marriage,,and raise you nationwide recognition of my state concealed carry permits”.
They are so amateur.
You forget one thing: most of the country voted to ban same sex marriage. Liberals have fought to overturn it. But when it comes to guns, a minority of states with restrictive laws are allowed to hold the rest of the country hostage. When elections don’t go their way, the Left gets to rewrite the rules.
Interesting isn’t it? Remember how hard they fought to get that very state to go gay marriage,,the tactic being that all others would have to recognize a state license?
How soon they forgot.
The left recognizes no limits from the people, or any constitutional structure. The constitution means one thing today, and then tomorrow they use the same exact clause oppositely if it advances the socialist revolution.
Right-thinking? I wish the Boston Globe would stop forcing their damn religious beliefs about right and wrong on the rest of us. ;-)
This is the first time I can recall liberals having something good to say about “right-thinking.” ;-) They usually are allergic to it. :)
hahaha not that kind of “right-thinking” I’m sure.
This is not a states rights issue, but a Constitutional issue. The Second Amendment applies to ALL states and citizens. What part of Shall not be infringed do they not understand?
It all depends on how you interpret the Constitution. Besides, every one knows gun nuts are homicidal maniacs.
I really hate to have to say this, but the Constitution means what it says. It doesn’t need to be interpreted. I’m not a fancy college graduate, but I can read and understand the Constitution. The Bill of Rights are a listing of our God given rights and the states shouldn’t (don’t) have any say over them. Even the Federal Government shouldn’t (don’t) have any say over them.
Of course, that has changed over the years and our Rights are slowly being changed and taken away due to our “gods in black” on the Supreme Court.
As the guy said, call me a gun nut again, and I will blow your head off.
To the easily offended or those unable to comprehend, it was a JOKE.
Clueless reporter alert. Of all the CCWs available to out of state residents, Utah is one of the most difficult. It requires a state certified instructor, a set number of hours for the course and live fire proficiency.
Well, we all know that words don’t kill people. Books do.
I’m signed up for a Utah license course/class at local Cabelas in two weeks, but somehow getting one just doesn’t motivate me to consider visiting Massachusetts. `
