    I hope that if I have a legally registered gun that I can carry it. Its crazy that I can't without a permit. There are times I just want to take it with me but can't. Soooo fucked up.

    rightfully the bill failed. scotus has not ruled the 2nd to apply to the states and as such it is a states right issue at this point and i don't think the federal government should intervene telling states what to do or what requirements to make in this matter.

    No, the real question is how do the states like NY with their absurd anti private gun ownership stance square witht the 2nd amendment?

    Here's a sad thing. To prevent the possibility of a revolt, the government in England started giving it's people what they wanted, listening to them and such, and since then they have been getting better. To prevent the possibility of a revolt in the US they just take away our only tools for such, even though there would be no real threat of one. What you should be asking is: Why does the government want to disarm it's citizens?
