National Reciprocity

National Reciprocity ignores states’ rights that is, the Tenth Amendment

The 10th Amendment says “Powers not delegated to the Federal government, or prohibited shall be left to the states. “ The 2nd Amendment protects the right to keep and BEAR arms. That says national reciprocity to me.

Another way to state the OP is: Should the Federal Government have the right to tell states they must recognize permits from all the other states?

Currently the party in control seems to think a “Federal Firearms Card” is a good idea to purchase a gun from an FFL. I don’t simply because it’s more gov’t to pay for

HOWEVER…

Let us not waste a good crisis (thank you Mr. Holder)

If I am cleared FEDERALLY to purchase a gun then given the prevailing winds of change …

It might also mean with an additional stroke of a pen that I can

Buy a suppressor/Class 3 item and pay the tax on the spot
Buy a handgun in any state
Cross any state line with a firearm

I’m sure I can come up with more but it wouldn’t be too far of a stretch to meet the requirements for FEDERAL CARRY which would mean national carry.

Cheers,

Excellents points. Perhaps you should create a separate thread to discuss them.

Federal license is a federal registry…

The last thing I want is the federal legislature to get a foot in the door on overruling states for local carry laws.

Think about that precedent for a minute.

Go take a look at the house of Representatives and see how many reps are from CA, HI, NY, NJ, MD, etc, and tell me you honestly want them to end up controlling carry permits and carry laws in every state. Because you have to know that’s where it would end up.

Very similar to what I mentioned on Jared’s “guns and gadgets” channel on YouTube today, as far as the reciprocity. Pretty sure I’ll have a chance to mention your thoughts with my senators blewemall and smurfy, and sure they’ll welcome your ideas on “common sense gun control.” :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Agree. Both CT Senators are totally worthless…

Doesn’t Article IV say “No, it don’t.”?
