We were talking the other day about reciprocity....My beef is with driver’s licenses. One license obtained where you live. When it’s time to renew, if you have moved, you renew it there. Of course the “tax scam” is plates and registering the vehicle every two years (in my State).
Only two of them were surprising.
Eric Schneiderman is a first class d***head. As New Yorkers, we deal with this anti-Constitution AG on a daily basis.
I’m sorry the rest of you have to be subjected to his unparalleled stupidity on a matter such as this.
Can't allow the plebs a taste of freedom. That would spoil everything. BTT.
Don’t know why the NY AG is making such a big stink. There’s a snowball’s chance in Heck Obama would ever sign such a thing.
So will these same AGs allow "states rights" restrictions on women voting, slavery, cruel and unusual punishment, self-incrimination, or things not even in the Constitution like gay marriage or abortion?
Of course not, there's the catch-all "equal protection" argument!
It's only your 2nd Amendement Right that's... not really a "right" but... more like guidelines... (says Capn' Barbosa)
Truthfully I am apprehensive about forced reciprocity, because I fear it opening up a can of worms.
There are a very large number of reciprocity agreements between the states over all sorts of things—with no federal hand in any of it. But this is not to say that the federals would not love to horn in to these agreements if they could.
Right now they do horn in if there is great disagreements, such as over water in the western states. And once the feds decide something, good or bad, the states are stuck with it.
I can almost guarantee that if federal gun reciprocity is passed, the very next efforts will be to make “homosexual marriage”, “abortion rights”, “hate crimes laws”, and other such things as binding federal reciprocity agreements.
And lord knows what all else. So, at least for the time being, it is less harmful to just know that you cannot transport guns through some parts of the US, where the constitution means little compared to the corruption of government.
“You know the BS is getting thick when the left invokes states’ rights.”
What a metric load of horse hockey.
Why then can't each state place its own restrictions on the 1st Amendment? The 4th? The 6th? 7th? 8th?
The truth is, the Constitution is just a convenient fiction. It is no longer operative. The Left has control, and is just deciding its moment to fully seize power, and how many deaths they are willing to entertain to get it.
State’s rights to repress rights. They’re consistent.
Now, that would be a problem, wouldn't it.
Imagine if our Founders had been so foolish as to provide a common expectation like, for example, "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed". That would really be a problem.
The anti-gunners' heads are going to explode unless Obama is able to change the present make-up of the Supreme Court.
Pennsylvania Attorney General-Elect...”
Well, gee, It didn’t take long for this effing witch POS Kathleen Kane to show her true colors.
We’ll see how a couple thousand letters to the Republican Governor and House and Senate, and every gun rights organization in the state organizing against her sticks this right up her ass if she tries her liberal freak BS with Pennsylvania gunnies.
Game on, sweetie.
Then you would need a separate drivers, marriage or any other license when you visit a state.
Actually, the marriage license thing was an issue in the early 1900’s when biracial couples would travel through parts of the South.
Another Harvard educated Jewish lawyer who hates “little people” and thinks he’s just the answer for all our problems.
In other words, the Reciprocal Right to Carry law is good for America, good for patriots, good for freedom, good for liberty....and bad for the socialist despots who want to destroy our Constitution & rule the country as dictatorial elitists & fascist-socialists.
That's always entertaining when Lefties start sounding like 'originalists'. When it serves their ends, even Nancy Pelosi can sound like a Constitutional Scholar.(well, that may be taking it a bit too far)
"all of those guns found their way to New York without the help of a reciprocity law."
Did the guns just all walk up to NY all on their own? Maybe they flew. Perhaps an SUV gave them a ride.
The first step in "economic secession" should be declaration from all Red States that
"No 'order' (tyrannical fiat) issued by the Federal Executive Branch or any 'regulation' issued by any Federal agency of unelected bureaucrats shall bear the force of law within this State."
The second step in the "economic secession" of the red states from the blue hellholes should be a "Red State 2nd Amendment Reciprocity Bill".
The next step in "economic secession" should be Red State bills declaring all taxes paid by that State's citizens or businesses to be State Taxes -- with the State legislatures releasing to the Federal Government only those funds required to support that State's fraction of essential services (i.e. National Defense) that are Constitutional Federal responsibilities.
States should then be required by their citizens to reduce their citizens' taxes commensurate with the difference between taxes now paid to the FedGov and the pittance ratio of "Federal" funds returned to the state in the prior five years.
And then, Red States should begin a sequence of withholding their shares of any monies going to worthless or harmful agencies such as IRS, EPA, ATF, HHS, TSB, etc., etc., etc... And then, the States should reduce their citizens' taxes by a proportionate amount.
2A legislation is the big stumbling block of centralization. The idiots know if they pass an egregiously stupid law some states will not only ignore it they will completely circumvent it. Kind of like select fire rifles and MGs without the dog license. (FTR I want a M-249) Since America is being reduced to a combination day care center/Jim JOnes cult with people desperate to get out of this show of freedom could set off a rapid demise of the baby sitting regime.
One question: Does Schneiderman carry in New York or in ANY state he visits?
I went to the Village Voice and looked at the comments. Amazingly, all 13 of them were against Mr. Schneiderman.
