National reciprocity

Looks like the NRA is going for it.

    “But Malte counters that reciprocity could ultimately leave states “powerless” to stop even violent individuals who cross the state line with weapons.”

    You know, it’s lunacy like that that really hammers home just how incredibly out of touch with reality and that same ‘common sense’ they keep blathering on about the anti’s really are. Seriously, anti’s? That actually makes sense to you??? Do you connect the dots by drawing lines from one book to another, creating completely abstract thought patterns? Wow.

    Good.

    We already have demonstrated majority support in both houses of Congress, just not enough to overcome a filibuster and veto.

    We need to keep pushing and push this over the finish line.

    I’d still like to know what powers he suggests states have to prevent violent criminals crossing the state lines. Checkpoints and passports?

    I dislike the idea of national reciprocity implemented on the federal level. Not because I don’t wish reciprocity in general would happen, but because it’s giving into the idea that the federal government has authority to regulate this. Provided the state laws in question are constitutional, the federal government has no business telling states who they can’t allow to carry any more than they have business telling the states who they can allow. If we want reciprocity, the appropriate angle to work is the state governments. Giving the federal government the power to enforce reciprocity is giving them the power to take it away as well.

    Good Luck getting Ohio’s RINO Attorney General to come aboard! And since this November, it’s either Him or an Uber-Liberal Democrat, I’m not holding my breath.

    I am, however sending out applications to several States to get their CHPs, just to Increase my Reciprocity. Look at Arizona’s Requirements and Costs. VERY NICE!

    TM,

    The way to enact it is under Congress’s authority to enforce the 14th Amendment.

    That makes it a statute to protect a pre-existing right, not a claim of federal authority over concealed carry.

  7. Geodkyt Says:

    Keep in mind that the right to “Keep and *BEAR* Arms” is one that is specifically protected in the FEDERAL Constitution. A pre-existing one, not created by the Second Amendment, merely explicitly recognized and protected by it. A right that pretains to humans in general, and US citizens and residents in particular.

    Likewise, Article IV Section I provides that states must recognize “…the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State…”. Not JUST court decisions, but the public acts and records.

    Article IV, Section II provides another avenue for P&I, outside the 14th Amendment.

    We should already have it under the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the US Constitution. If Massachusetts has to recognize my driver’s license, why not my CHL?
