Now who said he wouldn't follow the Constitution about.personal freedom?

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump -- who said he has a concealed carry permit -- called for the expansion of gun rights Friday, including making those permits applicable nationwide. In a position paper published on his website Friday afternoon, Trump called for the elimination of gun and magazine bans, labeling them a "total failure."

"Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own," Trump wrote.

It's not a departure from what he's said on the trail this year, though it does mark a shift from a position he took in his 2000 book "The America We Deserve," where Trump stated that he generally opposes gun control but that he supported a ban on assault weapons and a longer waiting period to get a gun.

"Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like 'assault weapons', 'military-style weapons' and 'high capacity magazines' to confuse people," Trump wrote Friday. "What they’re really talking about are popular semi-automatic rifles and standard magazines that are owned by tens of millions of Americans."

He also supports the no fly/no buy list. I doubt he’ll push it very hard but good to see one of HRC’s signature positions supported by Mr. Trump.

I totally agree with the concept that if you possess a CCW, it should be honored in "all" states. The CCW permits demonstrate that you have had a background check, are not a felon and thus should be able to carry anywhere (excluding in courtrooms, et cetera).

You don't need a permit for any of those things....if you are stopped by police and they find a weapon on you they can run your name then...if you are a felon you get arrested, if not you go on your way.....innocent until proven guilty and all that...and not having to prove yourself to the government to exercise a Right....

Each state has its regulations regarding the transport of weapons in a motor vehicle. If not properly stored in accordance with the state's law, you lose.
