    Five Fast Gun Reforms President Trump Will Sign Into Law
    .

    President-Elect Donald Trump stunned the world last night with a commanding upset victory over the heavy favorite, Democrat Hillary Clinton. In addition to Trump’s victory in the contest to be the 45th President of the United States, the National Rifle Association’s five million members helped retain control of the Senate by backing victorious GOP contenders in Florida, Missouri, Indiana, North Carolina, and Wisconsin (at this time, New Hampshire’s Senate contest between Kelly Ayotte (R) and Maggie Hassan (D) remains too close to call). The House also remains comfortably under the control of the GOP.
    .
    The NRA pumped more money into Trump’s election than any super-PAC, and Trump has a reputation for standing by his allies.
    .
    Here are five fast gun law reforms President Trump and his Republican House and Senate can make.
    .
    Ending Gun-Free Zones On Military Bases
    .
    President Trump will have the authority to executive authority to pass an executive order allowing the United States military to carry firearms on duty. Our domestic military bases and facilities have been the site of numerous terror attacks and mass shootings. Trump can reverse that with the stroke of a pen. He would also apparently have the authority to end firearm bans on other federal property, but there are so many laws and regulations that I don’t want to make that claim prematurely.
    .
    National Concealed Carry Reciprocity
    .
    There is significant momentum towards establishing national concealed carry reciprocity in all 50 states. President Trump, working with a Republican-controlled
    .
    House and Senate, should be able to get this passed into law within the first 90 days. There are four different bills to choose from in the House and Senate.
    .
    Legalizing Silencers
    .
    Making a hearing safety device criminal was one of the dumbest things ever done under the Administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt… and that’s saying a lot. The Hearing Protection Act is already written and has co-sponsors. It should be passed within the first 60 days of President Trump’s administration, which is a blessing to high-volume shooters such as myself who would like to better protect our hearing.
    .
    NICS Background Check Reform
    .
    Gun control supporters want a “universal” background checks on all gun purchases in order to create a de facto gun registry… and that’s just not going to happen. What is going to happen is that President Trump, the House, and Senate are going to work on legislation to close the gaping holes in the existing background check system so that it is more effective, ensuring better and more accurate updating of prohibited persons. This will likely run in conjunction with mental health reform to both help people in crisis obtain the help they need, and ensure that fears of losing their Second Amendment rights won’t keep people from seeking help for a temporary but important mental health crisis.
    .
    Allow Importation of Collectable Historical Firearms
    .
    President Obama has stymied the importation of historically significant firearms provided to allies after the Second World War and the Korean War through executive orders. The Collectible Firearms Protection Act will allow the reimportation of hundreds of thousand of M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, and M1911 pistols.
    .
    These are five laws that a Republican Congress and President Trump can pass within the first 90-180 days, but they are not the only laws being considered.

    My Thoughts:
    .
    I would better like the ending the Gun Free Zone laws throughout the country, because we all know these places are just target rich environments for criminals.

    I can't tell you how happy I am about the National Concealed Carry Reciprocity thing in particular. What that means is that I can easily get a Virginia Nonresident permit (easy to get and covers a lot of states) and once National Concealed Carry Reciprocity is passed then it will cover me in California just like your driver's license can be accepted in any state. And I wouldn't even have to go through my own County's Sherriff's office to do it. No more stupid limitations on getting my CCW!

    I'm also looking forward to Silencer legalization (and I'm hoping they write it in such a way so as to override all the stupid limitations that some states currently have) because I'd like to be able to attach a King Armory KA-1230C brake/suppressor to my M44 rifle without worrying about how SOME PEOPLE will react to it here.

    Anyway, yeah. You could say I'm very stoked about this.

    The biggest challenge will be the nationwide reciprocity.

    Can anyone imagine the governors of states like CA, NY, MD and others not fighting this anyway and every-way possible?

    Then there are states without permits, I think there are now 6 that have constitutional carry. Some states have permits but require no proof of competency with a gun or knowledge of the law to obtain.

    Traffic laws are pretty much a standard across the country, gun laws and where you can/cannot carry vary widely from state. Which is an argument for getting rid of GFZ's everywhere.

    Some will argue that "state's rights" cannot deny rights granted by the US Constitution. If so, please explain current state laws counter to the 2A.

    We need to abolish NICS. You should not have to prove innocence.

    I can now see the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act as a coming reality with all 3 branches of the Government majority Republican. There were already 119 co-sponsors to HR 923. I see this as a soon to be reality, even if it is under another bill number. I have been a proponent of this for years.

  7. These decisions are best left to the states... I like them all, BUT this is the federal government interfering with the state right to govern. Abolish the federal bans and then let the residents of the states vote for laws they want.

    Don't quite agree with that, sure don't want gun's going to someone who shouldn't get one, although I would like it if you have a CCW you could bypass the NICS check, since you've gone through a background check already.

    Blue apparently believes that someone should be able to purchase a gun on their way home from being released from prison after serving their armed robbery sentence.

    No one does.

    Problem is NICS doesn't stop criminals.

    Why should you be considered guilty untill proven innocent? How is that American?
