    It's about time

    Lawmakers are considering a House bill that would give Americans who hold permits to carry firearms in their home states the right to carry their weapons across state lines.

    Although many states have entered into voluntary agreements, there is no nationwide framework for honoring permits and licenses uniformly. A bipartisan bill, co-authored by Reps. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., and Heath Shuler, D-N.C., aims to change that.

    When you leave your home is when you need your gun the most. You are more likely to be attacked out of your home than in your home. Why do some people think you have a forcefill surrounding you when you leave your home state?

    This sounds like a good thread to follow-up with a poll.

    Don't come to New York.

    You'll spend a year or two in Jail.

    If this law passes, NYC and State officials will have no choice but to recognize All States Gun Permits. Federal Supremacy and all.

    As a former Truck Driver I can tell you people in that Industry want this law. Currently no CDL carrying Driver can carry a weapon in their Truck, Simply because some states will not recognize their Permits while others will. Believe me, as a truck driver, a gun for Protection, Is a very good idea.

    I think heller vs. D.C. took care of the states.
    And then you have McDonald vs, Illinos

    They don't care about silly little things like Court Rulings. In Liberals minds they can Ban guns if they want to, and fuck you if you don't like it.

    Even though I agree with the bill I don't think the feds have any right telling another state how to gov. itself

    Won't happen that quickly.

    Even the Scalia court said in Heller, States have a right to impose reasonable restrictions.
