I think it's a really bad idea when the Federal government disregards the US Constitution and decides that every State has to conform to what Washington says to do.
Like mandated seat belt laws? mandated by the US Government. Like the 1934 National Firearm Act? Mandated by the US Government.
This Bill is absolutely dead and is just "make the voters feel good" legislation. before it passed Harry Reid, the senate majority leader said he would never call it for a vote.
If you decide to drive cross country on any Interstate highway, change planes or trains in Chicago then you still wouldn't be able to carry concealed because the voters of Illinois have not passed concealed carry.
What about Hawaii? Hawaii has a concealed carry law. Know how many permits have been issued?
None, not one single concealed carry permit.
Some States issue licenses based on training and background. How would they handle visitors from Alaska, Vermont or Arizone who don't require anything not even the permit themselves.
If you start messing with State's rights, then we end up with an insurrection like the one in 1861.
We used to be called "these United States" because we were all separate but acting as one. Now we are just the United States. We are fast losing our individual identities and freedoms.
Cheering the worthless scumsuckers (from both parties) in Congress on while they work hard to destroy what we have is really not a good idea.
"I believe that many of today's social ills and political party bickering could be solved by the simple implementation of legalized dueling."
