The first and last word to the beginnings of all our troubles. The politicians do EXACTLY what they are told to do by the voters. How could they retain their seats if the voters did not believe in them? The P.T. Barnum syndrome. Don't underestimate the stupidity of the American people. Incredibly with the plethora of data to support this, the people will continue fanatic in the same exact vein.
If everyone could quit their jobs for one month, the gov't would be brought to its knees. Then you may see them perk up and listen for a change...
Of course not. That is how the ACA was passed. As Jonathan Gruber, architect of the ACA so eloquently stated, "Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage, And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass."
The bigger issue as I see it, as much as I would like to see reciprocity between the states, I'd rather it be left up to the states. Big fan of the 2A and concealed carry. Bigger fan of states rights. Feds giveth, feds taketh away.
And the sh&t for brains that made that statement is once again SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, and was when she made it!!!! So who's the real sh&t for brains here???
Rep. Hudson Reintroduces Constitutional Carry-Friendly Reciprocity
I have great news. Gun owners have a "silver bullet" that can stop the gun control agenda being peddled by Nancy Pelosi -- thanks to a pro-gun member of the House of Representatives.
Republican Rep. Richard Hudson of North Carolina reintroduced his concealed carry reciprocity bill last week, and he was able to secure the same number as last year.
Like his previous bill, H.R. 38 would advance gun rights protections in several ways, as it would:
1) Allow your concealed carry license to be recognized in every state in the country -- thereby eliminating the possibility that you would be imprisoned for decades, merely for taking the wrong ramp off an interstate.
2) Protect the right of people from Constitutional Carry states to also carry firearms out of state -- so they could carry across the country with no permit!
3) Protect the right of citizens from anti-gun states (like NJ, NY, IL, HI, CA, etc.) by allowing them to carry in their own states, after getting a permit from a more gun-friendly state.
4) Open the door to allowing teachers to protect their students against mass murderers who attack their children in the classroom.
H.R. 38 already has nearly 100 cosponsors. Urging Your Congressmen to Cosponsor H.R. 38 is NOT a waste of your time!
H.R. 38 is a great bill. But why try to get cosponsors on a pro-gun bill when Nancy Pelosi controls the House?
Surely, Pelosi is not going to let H.R. 38 get a vote, right?
No, she’s not. But we shouldn’t jettison our agenda, simply based on who controls the Congress.
Have you noticed that the anti-gun Left never stops pushing for votes -- even when they are in the minority? That’s how they keep their momentum and their agenda on the table.
We at Gun Owners of America will not stop pushing for concealed carry reciprocity.
Besides, it may be the best way to kill the anti-gun agenda that Pelosi wants to cram down our throats.
In 2013, Senator Harry Reid would have passed Obama gun control (probably with 50 votes), had not our threat to offer reciprocity thwarted him. Reciprocity became the “silver bullet” which helped us kill the entire Obama gun control agenda in the Senate. (See p. 6 here.)
Well, 2019 is going to be a long year and there are going to be a lot of legislative battles.
And we are going to need to stay on offense if we expect to win the war.
Heck, you may even see H.R. 38 as an amendment to an infrastructure or immigration bill.
Remember when our pro-gun parks amendment passed as an amendment to a credit card bill -- with Barack Obama's signature in 2009?
That’s why I say that we should never give up and never stop going on offense -- no matter which party is in power.
LoL. They didn't pass it before it won't be passed now.
