    I'm my state I don't have to have a license or register firearms, because my state recognizes that the RKBA is a protected act.

    They are not the same imo.

    I wholeheartedly agree with your last point.
    You do not have to register that car/truck/motor vehicle if you keep it on private property/not driven on the street. And in the case of farm trucks/trailers, there is a blanket exemption in Florida that covers them if within 150 miles of the home location of the farm. In many states, there are no licenses needed for guns either if kept on private property. It is when it comes into carrying on public property that many requirements for handguns come up. Unless you live in places like CA, Philly, NYC or any of the other " you've got to register" locations.

    I support it but feel the chances are about equal to my going to Rooms To Go and coming home with Cindy Crawford. But we can always dream.

Uh-uh....not happening. Hand grenades and rocket launchers available to the public?? No way. Nukes to anyone who can afford one?? Etc., etc. Yeah....right. Anyone care to disagree with those restrictions?? There are plenty of others as well that are just plain common sense). I don't think having to attend and pass a 3 hour firearm course is unreasonable at all. That's why I don't support unrestricted carry. I don't think every Tom, Richard, and Harriet should be allowed to pack unless they've proved themselves at least minimally competent.

    I'm pretty sure that there were reasonable restrictions 200+ yrs ago as well. I doubt very much if babbling idiots, habitual drunks, senile old folks, etc. were allowed to carry loaded weapons around in 1791. There may not have been a written law against such people carrying firearms but I'd bet that their fellow citizens made sure they were disarmed and not a danger to the public.
    I think you are wrong about this legislation, it is my understanding that it would make your carry permit valid in all states just like your drivers licence,,I don't think it for completely unrestricted carry rights.... also I don't think anyone took your gun away in the 1700, lest you were passed out... They either stayed out of your way, or shot you in the back when they had the chance.

    Of course I support it, by law we already have it. no where in the constitutionof the United States is the carry of firearms restricted in anyway. and if you look back to the original state constitutions none of them ever voiced that the state had a right to regulate carrying of a concealed firearm. All those "amedments" were amended by a 2/3rds majority vote of the legislative sessions within the last decade or so.What most stated need to do is put a preemption clause in and that would negate local governments from infringments like riquiring concelaled carry.. to carry at all. an things would be peachy keen oh and get those liberal tree huggin bastard democrap outta office.. they all should be run out on a rail!

    I would vote yes to full national constitutional carry as long as they did background checks and still would not sell to convicted criminals or illegal aliens. It should be a citizens right to choose if you want to buy and or carry a handgun.

    I agree

    does nobody think?

    I had to join this forum just to make a point that seems to have been missed. (Hi all, sorry for not doing a proper introduction)

    Everyone seems hell bent on swaying each other to their side. WE ARE FREE! Everyone can think what they want but that three word fact is reality.

    Honestly the point that's been missed all along is personal responsibility.

    When you pick up a firearm, own a firearm, or carry a firearm, you make a personal decision for which you and you alone are responsible. Lack of proper responsibility and/or accidents are already punishable by a variety of laws but unfortunately underpunished and not setting the kind of examples to create more diligence of personal responsibilities within the general masses.

    Tragedy is going to happen, no matter what we do to regulate people and their choices because among hundreds of others reasons; there will always be a vast number of irresponsible people in this world.

    If some halfwit decides to own and carry a firearm and not train themselves on proper safety, tactics, and usage that is their right to do so (assuming they're of legal status to own/purchase said firearm, I do believe in criminal background checks for purchases because as stated earlier within this thread, once you are a criminal many states take away certain citizenship rights which I feel is a just addition to the punishment in most cases). If the above halfwit can get through life without proper safety, usage, and tactical training without any issues, more power to them; I thank the good Lord for it. But if by some chance tragedy does strike, then we have plenty of laws on the books that if properly enforced will make an example of them to clue-in the next halfwit that decides to strap on a firearm; the clue being: they better train and train well or they're going to end up being the criminal they were intending on protecting themselves from.

    I am personally of the mindset that if it were not for my family and the issues it could cause them if I were to get into legal troubles; I would say everyone just quit getting permits and start carrying however you please where ever you please and do so myself (I already know a rather large number of otherwise law abiding citizens that illegally carry their firearms). Obey all other laws and give LEO no reason to interact with you and you'll go through life without issue. If you do something unrelated that's stupid and end up caught, guess what, it's your own fault for doing stupid things and getting yourself caught. YES, accidents may happen, but we must take responsibility for our mistakes and accidents. It is all about 100% personal responsibility. If attacked I'd still rather be a living breathing unlicensed carrier of a firearm than another dead victim of a senseless attack by (as only one of a thousand example scenarios that could be placed here) a drug addict needing their next fix.

    Most folk that make the decision to carry understand what it is they are undertaking and don't need anyone else telling them how to do it unless they request said information. That being said, I've never found a single source to provide me with all the details truly required for successful and safe concealed carry and personal defensive tactics for all scenarios possible. Nor have I found any trainers that provide all that is truly required either...

    There is no way to make something safe that is by all definitions; dangerous. Training courses can help some people, but shouldn't be a requirement of law; anyone smart enough to make the decision to carry is smart enough to seek the training they require. The only thing that a permit does; is give people around a person that carries a firearm a false sense of security thinking they're somehow qualified. A firearm is dangerous anytime the human component is added to the equation no matter the training or certification or permits those humans may have because accidents do happen. That is why there are charges on the books for such things, unlawful discharge of a firearm, involuntary manslaughter, etc...

    Whoever it was way back in this thread said the N R A says gun accidents are down due to better training, I partly disagree with that. I think allot has to do with the simplicity of today's firearms. As far as training goes, there is only one thing I think everyone should require of themselves. I've always considered all this common sense as that was how it was taught to me, maybe it is not and I'm sure any disagreeing parties will spout off, but my advice to people considering a new gun, whether you want to carry or not, is keep the weapon unloaded and handle it anytime it won't yield you a brandishing charge (a.k.a. at the range or in your home) for the first several days/weeks/months. Learn everything there is about the gun and always handle it in super slow motion paying particular attention to where it is aimed at all times. Practice dry firing the weapon (as long as it will not harm your particular weapon, most of today's guns are fine with dry fires) to learn the trigger control, but most importantly if the gun has a manual safety, learn to unlock it on the way to aim and then enable the safety immediately (both disengaging and engaging the saftey as close to the aim point as possible). Practice keeping your finger off the trigger till you're on target and fine tuning the aim because if you're accidently squeezing the trigger when you turn the safety off, many guns will fire immediately. Lay it down and pick it up alot. Practice fast-draw from your favorite or new holster. Learn or relearn whatever handling skills or other safety procedures or safety devices that may be implemented on your particular firearm for each and every gun you ever get. Anytime that gun goes into or out of ready-to-fire position it should always be left in a "safe to carry" mode. Only once you have no safety or handling issues with it unloaded and you are truly confident in your handling of that specific firearm do you bring ammo near it, load it, fire it, or carry it. Then once you load it, you go back to step one of handling in slow motion again and only speed up if there is a threat to your life. Never ever feel "confident" when handling a loaded firearm. Never do tactical training exercises like fast draw with a loaded weapon, you only increase your risk of being shot before the bad guys ever arrive. Never even have ammo nearby when doing such things as it is easy to unload, practice a bit, reload, go do something else, then decide to practice again and forget to unload. The biggest thing to preventing firearms accidents doesn't come from any training, it comes from the care involved in knowing your weapon as well or better than the company that designed it and the awareness of exactly what is going on with your weapon at all times. A loaded weapon should always be in a holster and only come out of the holster to be unloaded or fired. If it is out of it's holster for 20 seconds and neither unloading or shooting has started, you made a bad choice on taking it out of the holster to begin with and should consider yourself to be brandishing.

    Me personally, I chose my most recent carry weapon partly on the fact it has a manual safety that never needs disabled for any reasons other than to practice at the range or to take down bad guys. And that is the only time the safety has ever been turned off (first of those reasons and thankfully never the second). I can clean, load, unload, disassemble, whatever; safety stays on. It is reasons such as this I think is a major contributing factor in accidents going down.

    It really isn't hard to remember you gotta stick that goes bang and can kill people; it doesn't take a smart person to understand care must be taken. Anyone who thinks that care must be taken for a group of people on their behalf by requiring training that most likely will do them no good is just clearly letting those people know what they think of their intelligence levels (which as stated earlier in this thread is an elitist attitude). Anyone in need of training will seek it out when making a decision such a carrying a firearm and if not will face any possible consequences to their possible stupidity to be an example so someone else doesn't make the same mistake. If they do or don't doesn't really matter in the end, if something happens, they are responsible. A government that is trying to lessen or increase that personal responsibility on them is wrong. It defies freedom.

    If everyone spent a little more time on their own responsibilities and their own training and preparedness, and only helping those that request their help, the world would be a much better place and FAST. We don't have to change each other's minds. State the facts and move on. We have a right to carry, plain and simple. Do with it what you choose. Be warned bad things can and do happen no matter what you choose because the world doesn't revolve around you. Be a responsible person and live up to your potential and always answer for your actions whether they are right, wrong, accidental, or just a mistake.

    I'm not stating anyone here is anything less than fully responsible for their actions and takes due care in all they do, nor am I trying to ruffle any feathers. I just read this thread for the first time tonight and saw many of the same points repeated repeatedly on both sides of the argument, but none stating the obvious point that we each have a responsibility to ourselves and those around us in the decisions we make and that the lack of responsibility is what needs regulated. If this poll were still open I would say yes, nationwide permitless carry of legal firearms by legal citizens is partly what 2A protects and should be allowed and I do support it and would be in support of anyone who was legal to own a firearm to carry that firearm anywhere that person has a legal right to be, permits be damned (private property excluded).

  11. I would like for each of the states to adopt it, but I do not support the Feds getting involved. As for why...the 2nd Amendment says "the right to keep and BEAR arms shall not be infringed." It's unconstitutional to have to ask the damn government for permission to exercise a right.
