Surrendering your right to self defense to the congress is almost the stupidest idea Iíve ever heard. Respectfully, we arenít losing, why do this. Our ground game is killing them. We have legislatures in at least 35 states backing down to our demands, judges are finally forced to recognize the individual right (Heller), we are winning 1000ís of new shooters a week, and state after state is going permit-less. Why risk it?
You are asking the congress “to make regular” the carrying of a concealed weapons for self defense among the 50 states. TO MAKE REGULAR = REGULATE. You are asking the congress to regulate guns by force of law. This is insane.
We donít need their ďhelpĒ. I agree that it would be funny to poke the California and Massachusetts legislatures and attorney generals in the eye but for what? This canít end well, it just canít.
Every single session of the congress, every year, we will have to spend time, money and effort to prevent amendments to this section of the federal code, for-FUCKING-ever. No wonder the ‘Pro Gun’ lobbyists want this, what a racket for them, money in perpetuity to prevent amendments. Don’t we have enough to do at the state and local level already? This will be a resource suck away from what matters, our hometowns.
Everything government touches becomes corrupted. Why won’t anybody think 5 or 6 chess moves and 10 years into the future on this? Why? Withholding state highway, medicaid, and medicare funds unless smart guns are required is just one example. Or how about mandatory 10 dollar per round special ammo as another. Everything the fedgov does to us is through this path. What about simple amendments such as; localities can determine what is best for them. Now you have to challenge your local government all the way to the supreme court on every little tiny issue
And as for the Commerce Clause; it has already been flipped by the courts from it’s original meaning. It was intended to ensure the states didn’t impose tariffs and preferential treatment between themselves in commerce. It has now been flipped to mean that the fedgov can regulate EVERYTHING. This article is using a flawed (more properly, former) interpretation of this clause. The article even states as much. Why use your gun rights to try and reverse decades of flawed law on interstate transactions. This has nothing to do with guns, why risk it. Say the law passes congress but the courts uphold the modern interpretation of the commerce clause – YOU LOSE SUCKERS – congress now owns your gun rights, nationwide.
Why can nobody see these things? What is wrong with you people?
Why oh why would anybody want to even suggest congress do anything except go die. Trillions of dollars in debt with no end in sight by known psychopathic liars and control freaks. The congress is a den liars and thieves, nobody disputes this, and yet we are asking it to regulate the only thing on the planet that shall not be infringed. What The Fuck???
I hope it fails, never to be revived. This path is fraught with danger and WILL BE DESTRUCTIVE TO YOUR LIBERTY. You have been warned.
I can’t wait for reciprocity to get passed. The fools who are crying about government regulation are hermits that live in the center of a Red State and never have to travel to a blue state. They’ve got theirs and screw the rest of us.
