    Bingo.

    Guys, this goes back to the enforcing the laws already on the books.

    The Second Amendment isn't a suggestion, it isn't just the law; it's the highest law of the land.

    We don't need a bill authorizing the Constitution. We need to be getting rid of ones that abridge it.

    There's been a lot of misguided, unfounded, and just plain incorrect information regarding H.R. 822 -- the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011."

    NRA is not as interested in protecting the 2A as in protecting theirs and the gun industry profits.

    I believe in 2A but I also believe in the "well regulated" part. And I don't want to introduce either the NJ or the AZ scenarios into my own state. No total prohibition and no permits for someone who just got off their anti-depressants. I much prefer having some ability to influence the law on my local level.

    Do you believe that I (from KS) deserve the same rights as you do from your state...when I'm in your state? Because when I visit your state, your state treats you differently from how your state treats me. How is that ok and where in the Constitution do you find it ok for a state to exercise their right to treat their own state residents different from out of state residents when it comes to basic fundamental rights like self-protection?

    I just read the whole bill, took about 5 minutes, it's only 6 pages. I don't see anything bad about this bill. In fact I think it would be a good thing for the residents of NJ, MD, CA, HI, MA and NY. It doesn't stomp on states' rights, it requires states to treat residents and non-residents the same.

    HR822 is not about gun rights or 2a. It's about the reciprocity of CCW. Each state regulates this issue, therefore, they need to continue this process. Having the feds involved is not a good thing.

    I had the honor of visiting with some of my liberal friends this weekend. They brought this bill up for conversation; they were very well versed in the details; they supported it. These folks believe guns are for hunting (with lots of regulations) and home self-defense (registration/regulations).

    I doubt this bill will get passed by the senate, maybe the house; however, King Obama won't sign it on the surface. This bill will cause more problems down the road when the Dems have control. The NRA has clout in congress; but not enough to ALWAYS protect and PREVENT this bill from being changed by the Brady Bunch politicians in the future.

    Well, it wouldn't be a "trojan horse" if all you had to do was READ it on the surface to understand the implications. :rofl:

    Red, if this passes the Senate it is going to President Obama. There are currently over 250 co-sponsors from both sides of the aisle in the House. How are we going to improve anything if we are too afraid of the Brady Bunch of Bullspitters to put forth any legislation? How is forcing President Obama to take a position on one side or the other of a major gun issue in an election year a bad thing? Let him veto it and explain to democrats that don't live in the country's ten largest cities why he did so.

    Obama has never vetoed a single bill that hit his desk. This won't be the first one.

    More like "Toorop= Anti-American and Anti-Gun laws and ideals" in thread after thread after thread. The NRA, on the other hand, is the ONLY gun rights organization that has done ANYTHING for us and the only one that will.

    Unfortunately, the NRA understands the absolute necessity of approaching expanding and protecting gun rights as a chess game that requires long term strategy. Anti-NRA gun owners want it to be a checkers game where they blindly attack at every opportunity, regardless of strategy or long-term harm.

    Then there are those like Toorop, best I can tell from his posts, who just masquerade as gun owners online to try to sabotage things like the NRA by spreading false dissent.

    To the antis, nothing we say will help.

    To those of you who think fighting for gun rights is as simple as a checkers game and the NRA is selling out by not jumping the other guy's checker at every opportunity, please educate yourself in law and politics, so you can help instead of harm.

    This bill will not be signed by King Obama as a stand alone bill. If it does, I'll buy you a bottle of Jack's finest. (within reason :supergrin:) This bill has to have both house/senate to pass the same one. There is already a different bill, IIRC HR2900.

    This is not being afraid of the Brady Bunch; it's allowing states to control things in their own state; then work with other states.

    Having King Obama take a stand on it is not relevent. He's made it pretty clear, he likes more gun control. However, he did sign a pro-gun bill by allowing carrying in Nat'l Parks, depending on state laws. He would have not signed it if it wasn't attached to a larger bill he was in favor of, credit card reform. This is the only way he will sign this bill.

    As I have stated earlier, this isn't a 2A issue; it is regulating CCW on a national level; which the states set the guidelines and should reciprocate with those they want to.

    Most of the misguided, unfounded, and incorrect characterizations circulating lately regarding H.R. 822 have come from the anti-gun groups and media. However, a small number of vocal and supposedly "pro-gun" groups continue to report falsehoods, despite clear evidence to refute their assertions. Though they claim to be on the side of America's gun owners and the Second Amendment, their stance on this measure proves otherwise.

    One group claimed H.R. 822 would include anti-gun amendments that would create "disastrous federally mandated infringements on our rights."

    But the House Judiciary has already considered amendments to H.R. 822, and all anti-gun amendments offered that would weaken or gut the legislation were defeated.

    The same group warns of "a 'study' to control firearm sales over the internet," and decries a "review" process that they claim will provide "a perfect opportunity for more changes." In reality, there was no amendment to study firearm sales over the internet. Period. And the "review" they speak of has nothing to do with adding new anti-gun provisions. The amendment referred to only requires a study of the law's effects, and that study would take place after the law is in effect.

    Another group is trying to insinuate that anti-gunners in Congress will support the bill in order to limit our gun rights. In evaluating this ludicrous accusation, please consider that H.R. 822 has not just 245 cosponsors, but 245 pro-gun cosponsors. And -- just as telling -- none of the stalwart anti-gun representatives have signed on. In addition, well known anti-gun groups, including the Brady Campaign and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, have made killing H.R. 822 their top legislative priority. There is no hidden anti-gun counter-plot going on here.

    Opponents of the legislation also claim that it tramples on each "states' rights." But states don't have rights, only powers. And while many anti-gun lawmakers who've long pushed national gun bans, national bans on private gun sales, national waiting periods and other federal restrictions have suddenly become born-again advocates of "states' rights" to oppose this bill, several provisions of the Constitution give Congress the authority to enact interstate carry. Congress also has the power to protect the rights of citizens, nationwide, under the 14th Amendment (please see related article from a recent Grassroots Alert).

    Again, and for the record:

    H.R. 822 is a GOOD bill and is GOOD for gun owners. The bill ENHANCES Americans' right to self-defense by enabling millions of permit holders to exercise their right to self-defense while traveling outside their home states.

    There is currently only one remaining state (Illinois) that has no clear legal way for individuals to carry concealed firearms for self-defense outside the home. H.R. 822 would require states to recognize each others' lawfully-issued carry permits, just as they recognize driver's licenses and carry permits held by armored car guards.

    H.R. 822 DOES NOT:

    Create a federal licensing or registration system;
    Establish a minimum federal standard for the carry permit;
    Involve the federal bureaucracy in setting standards for carry permit;
    Destroy permitless carry systems such as those in Arizona, Alaska, Vermont and Wyoming.

    H.R. 822 is headed to the House floor. Please IMMEDIATELY contact your member of Congress and urge him or her to support the earliest possible consideration of H.R. 822.

    Acujeff just posted the same condescending reply that the NRA gave me. What this reply does not address is that HR 822 gives the Schumers, Boxers, Lautenbergs, and their ilk an excuse to come back next year with a bill to establish national standards to suit them. All that the NRA ever said when I asked about that and got forceful wanting an answer was, "Then we will fight that." It seems like the NRA is getting a bit over-confident on this.

    By the way, drivers licenses are not a good analogy, since the states agreed to honor each others' by interstate compact--not as a result of federal legislation.

    I sent an email to Schumer and Boxer and Lautenberg, they say they aren't interested (since we're all making things up).
