    Anyone think that with the potential coming of a gun-control shi* storm, we could see our CPL rights vanish?

    I for one think it's a pretty slim chance, but anything is possible with those in office.

    What say you?

    I think if that happened it would turn millions of law-abiding citizens into law breakers.

    Precisely why I see it as not a high possibility of happening....

    I tend to agree that with a vast majority of states now allowing concealed carry, and with MILLIONS of licenses issued, trying to ban us now could lead to a landslide election in 2014.

    However, it would not surprise me if there's an attempt to limit magazine capacity.

    I don't see how given that that is controlled by the states.

    ALL these high-profile shootings this year... they weren't committed by CCWers. But they WERE committed by whackjobs already breaking multiple existing gun laws.

    If a particular state DID retract their CCW law, I seriously doubt more than a tiny fraction of a percentage of previously licensed people would continue to carry. I could be wrong but I don't think so. How many of those carried BEFORE legal CCW?

  7. Concealed carry is a state issue, not a federal one so I don't see how the feds could pass a law, or go through executive action, to keep a state from allowing this, other than blackmailing a state with the withholding of federal money. And if they did, just carry it openly if your state allows that.

    But even if they were to manage to enact something like this, there would be a huge backlash and a lot of people would ignore the law and carry anyway.

    Exactly why CCW should stay a state issue as opposed to a "federal" CCW. I'd rather Hoosiers decide how CCW should be handled in Indiana, rather than some yoyo's from NY or Kalifornia.

    No, it won't affect concealed carry. My guess is there will be a concerted effort to ban assault weapons again and perhaps magazine capcity on a federal level. The rest will be up to the states; and every state is different.

    cant happen, its a state's right issue.

    you can ccw in many states based on that state's laws.

    If anything, if a ban is inevitable, the Pubbies better give us something, like including National Carry reciprocity in the bill. It's the only way 0bama would sign that.

    Can't happen, Federal government does not have that authority...Only within federal buildings or property can it be issued....Now should the supreme court change hands we could and probably will see a very dangerous extention of goverment powers clearly not in the constitution which could cause us to start carrying openly and unholstered as we march on Washington...

    And you need to change your title - it's a State "PRIVILEGE" not a right! The state can take your "PRIVILEGE" away at any time! Just like a drivers license your CCW can be revoked! There are only three states with Constituional carry VT, AK, AZ. Everywhere else its a PRIVILEGE! Unless you can OC without a permit!:faint:

    I don't think I want National Carry. The Fed's will probably ruin my state's CCW law by tacking on extra fees/training requirements/rules etc. My state's CCW law is one of the best, and I don't want to water it down by combining it with the worst of other states. Plus, in this political climate, do you really think we would get a decent national carry law?

    I would rather see this left to the state's, and deal with the state-to-state variances on my own ability to research it before I carry outside my own state.
  16. Four. You left out Wyoming.

    And yes, this post is correct about privilege versus right in regards to obtaining a carry permit. Permit = permission and those who giveth can just as easily taketh away.

    I think that many are not thinking incrementally, which is something that the liberals do all too well. They will never go against concealed carry ... yet.

    After this tragedy, they are going to push to have the assault weapons ban. This of course will do nothing EXCEPT set them up for the next tragedy (yes there will be another).

    Then they will say, we need more laws and push include more laws under the assault weapons definition. This process will continue until any weapon that accepts a magazine / clip is banned from ownership.

    We would be left with revolvers and lever action rifles. The Feds could do this without any input from the states.

    Its already been done with automatic weapons (ownership restrictions etc).

    I fear that the days of the semi-automatic guns in the hands of the people is numbered. I vomit a little in my mouth when I type this.

    You're actually suggesting (unless I'm misunderstanding) the only way Obama would sign a new AWB, is if national reciprocity was in the bill?

    I'll have what you're smoking.

    Obama cleverly hid his anti-gun agenda during his first term... even cleverly passing a few bills that were "pro gun" but were more or less irrelevant. When the first tragedy of his second term hit (which unfortunately, was inevitable), he pounced. Amazingly, he didn't even get to his second inauguration before that tragedy happened.

    Of course, you could never convince "Pro Gun Democrats" of this. The only real hope we have, is for the House to keep this off Zero's desk.

    Agreed. This is a good summary of the situation.

    If you post on Glock Talk, and do not Vote, and did not Vote in the LAST ELECTION on November 6, 2012, IMHO you are part of this problem, and have no right griping about anything in the pipeline.

    Sadly in the USA only 15-20% of those eligible to Register TO VOTE, actual cast a Ballot in most elections.
