7 Anti-Gun Bills You Didnít Know About ^ | 29 May, 2012 | Kyle Wintersteen

Remember the good old days when we generally knew which politicians were bad on gun rights? Bill Clinton had foolishly convinced his colleagues that you could vote for a gun ban and remain in office or even win political favor. How wrong they turned out to be. In the wake of the Clinton “assault weapons” ban, a pro-gun revolution swept both houses of Congress. Even Clinton acknowledged the role of the NRA and gun owners in turning the tide, and he’d later credit them with Al Gore’s defeat.

The anti-gunners had learned their lesson. Now they quite literally camouflage their views by calling themselves “lifelong hunters.” They claim to respect the Second Amendment, but just want to impose a few “common sense restrictions” — you know, like bans on semi-auto rifles, right-to-carry permits and gun shows. They are cautious in their approach, and even when they push overtly anti-gun bills, they often do so quietly, in an attempt to avoid drawing unnecessary attention from those of us who value our rights.

But this piece exposes them. Here are the top seven anti-gun bills that you’ve never heard of.

There are pictures with the description of each bill, and you have to click on each to get the story. Most of the bills have been posted about on freerepublic. The magazine takes some bandwidth. I would not try it with dialup.

Common Sense Concealed Firearms Permit Act of 2011 - Amends the federal criminal code to direct each state that allows its residents to carry concealed firearms to establish a process through which a resident must obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm. Requires a state to: (1) ensure that a local law enforcement agency participates in the process; and (2) require that an applicant be a legal resident of the United States, be not less than 21 years of age, demonstrate good cause for requesting the permit, and demonstrate that he or she is worthy of the public trust to carry a concealed firearm in public. Requires any such process that allows an agency other than a law enforcement agency to issue such permits to require: (1) a local law enforcement agency to submit to the agency responsible a written report that describes whether the applicant meets the state's standards to carry a concealed firearm, and (2) the agency responsible to maintain such report in the applicant's file.

More attacks on the Constitution.

It's none of anyones business why one want's to carry.

It's a God given right and the responsibility of government to reason as to why one should lose such rights, NOT the responsibility of the bearer of arms to give reason for it.

“...demonstrate good cause for requesting the permit, and demonstrate that he or she is worthy of the public trust to carry a concealed firearm in public...”

The more well known the contribution bundler is, the more he is worthy of having sufficient public trust.

Every time they try to limit the ownership or possession of firearms, they underscore the reason that we have the Second Amendment.
