Senate Rejects Gun Reciprocity
The U.S. Senate rejected state gun reciprocity rights. APee/Yahoo News:
In a rare win for gun control advocates, the Senate on Wednesday rejected a measure allowing a person with a concealed weapon permit in one state to also hide his firearm when visiting another state.
The vote was 58-39 in favor of the provision establishing concealed carry permit reciprocity in the 48 states that have concealed weapons laws. That fell two votes short of the 60 needed to approve the measure, offered as an amendment to a defense spending bill.
Opponents prevailed in their argument that the measure violated states rights [ when have Liberals ever given a rat's butt about "states rights?" Hell, in their mind, only The Federal Nanny Government knows best! - Drake] by forcing states with stringent requirements for permits to recognize concealed weapons carriers from states that give out permits to almost any gun owner.
"Law-abiding individuals have the right to self-defense," even when they cross state lines, citing the example of truck drivers who need to protect themselves as they travel," [said Republican U.S. Senator John Thune of South Dakota].
New Yawk CommieCrat U.S. Senator Cluck Schumer called the proposal], "the most dangerous piece of legislation to the safety of Americans when it comes to guns since the repeal of the assault weapons ban."
"Banning guns is an idea whose time has come." - U.S. Senator Joseph Biden
Criminals will still be carrying concealed weapons and they will be carrying them across state lines. Law-abiding citizens, legally, cannot.
Liberals and Progressives are scared to death that a law-abiding citizen, who has passed every background check and passed every firearms safety training course, might defend him or herself against an attacker or against a violent crime.
Dear Leader His Excellency Barack Hussein Pbama, Junior is adamantly against the Second Amendment. So is Herr Joe Biden.
Another win for criminals thanks to The Insane Liberal Clown Posse (ILCP).
And The Left bristles when they are accused of being soft on crime and criminals? The facts speak loudly.

One law for you, and another one for me. Socialism at work.
That Hitler quote is a very good one in deed.
I found that Hitler quote somewhere, and I like it , yeah, it describes today's Liberal Criminal Lovers.
