I'm guessing, hoping this will pass the house and go to the senate. I'm hoping Harry will give it a up or down vote. Harry, for all his faults, is pro-gun, but we'll see. I don't know how it would fare in the senate.
If passed, this would be a real game changer for CA and other may-issue states. Here in CA, our CCW permits are state permits issued by the various counties and cities. Most jurisdictions in the state just don't issue permits. This would mean that out of state ccw permit holders could legally carry concealed in San Francisco, but locals could not.
I anxiously await the turmoil.

If it passes we will see some real parsing and doublespeak in places like New York to avoid complying.

Amendment No. 8Rep. Jackson Lee (D-TX): This amendment would require a person intending to carry or possess a concealed handgun in a state to inform that states law enforcement of their intentions at least 24 hours prior.
I hate morons.

I opposed this on 10th Amendment grounds. Don’t want the feds interfering in state issues at all......this will require them to have access to all the gun purchase/registration/CCW applications in all the states. None of their business.

Congress could mandate recognition of all states CCW permits in DC tomorrow, since Congress has the power to legislate "in all cases whatsoever" for the District.
This would probably do more good that this complex bill.

While it makes for good Conservative “sound bites”, this bill is a complete waste of time in the House. It will pass with a large (30 - 40 Dem) bi-partisan vote, no doubt. Unfortunately, Reid (pro gun that he and the NRA says he is) will never let come up in the Senate. Obama cannot let this bill hit the floor and he will instruct Reid to follow his orders. Both know that if it did appear on the Senate floor it would pass and Obama cannot let that happen.

Probably DOA in the Senate and the juggeared marxist would veto it any way.

It will die in the Senate if it isn’t voted down by a majority of BOTH parties.
Neither the Republicans or the Democrats want you to have the right to defend yourself s that makes you not dependent on government.
If you are not dependent on government you do not need politicians ,you don’t need politicians they lose power & that is what really motivates a politician not love of service to their fellow man.
