    That was the first thought that came to mind.
    I am all for states rights, but the 2A is not a state right, it is a GOD GIVEN right. It is in our countries constitution, and therefore, should not be infringed by states at all. It is wrong for states to say we can't CC. So this bill would rectify past infringment.
    I am all for it. :duim: Statistics show CC is a crime deterent, the anti's cannot deny that.

    The State's Rights angle bothered me a bit at first as well, but the more I thought about it, this is a little different than a normal law - it's the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Would we allow, say, Wisconsin to suddenly no longer recognize Freedom of Speech or Freedom of Religion?

    I'd actually like to see this passed as it would put tremendous pressure on states where you cannot get a carry permit or where it is virtually impossible to do so.

    Thanks for the bill number. It looks like another similar bill has now been introduced by a politician from Utah.
