Want to know why I think republicans are worthless?
To add to Ann Coulter’s reason, wherein they don’t have the balls to approve funding for a wall, I will add this.
What’s so goddam hard about telling states they MUST allow concealed carriers reciprocity.
That means it’s crunch time for those lawmakers who want to see some more of their top priorities get signed into law.
That includes one bill, which deals with gun rights and carrying concealed weapons across state lines.
Gun rights advocates say, this is the last shot – an opportunity to pass in the Senate what the U.S. House of Representatives already did in 2017- a law to allow people with a state issued concealed carry license or permit to conceal a handgun in any other state that allows concealed carry.
“We don’t like the idea that just because we’re going from one state to another our rights change, specifically our right to defend ourself,” said Kevin Michalowski, with U.S. Concealed Carry Association.
For Democrats, the bill was always a non-starter.
“Concealed reciprocity is an invitation to gun violence,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut Wednesday.
“I do not believe that you should undermine the abilities of states to pass their own laws, and that’s what this bill would do,” said Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Maryland.
