Other 'ConCarry' states maintain an LTC/CHL system so you can carry in states that honor your state's permit.
That makes sense. Thanks for the note.

Somebody is not reading the bills. However, a companion SB needs to be filed to even have a chance.

If the bill(s) are approved and resolved, then they go to the governor. He signs it or vetos it. If signed, the new law goes into effect on 1 Sep 21.

Still a lot of territory to cover, but filing the bill is required to even have a chance.

From a buddy, worth sharing...

More "unity"...FIVE new Bills hitting the floor of the house on the same day...all gun control and some draconian:

1. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/121/text?r=96&s=1

Hiring several hundred new ATF agents for "enforcement." If you follow guns at all and recent events around pistol braces and searches this should alarm you. The public will see it as "great, lets enforce our gun laws."

2. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/125/text?r=67&s=1

Seven day waiting period to buy any semi-automatic weapons, any silencer (dumb because due to approvals it takes months to get a silencer), armor piercing ammo (sounds good on the surface but they are trying to classify a wide range of ammo as "armor piercing"...even hollow points.

3. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/127/text?r=17&s=1

To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition. This should SCARE everyone. First they are trying to require a training class and license in order for you to exercise a core right in the Constitution. Second, this is a back door method of creating a gun registry....EVERY gun you own, every round of ammunition you buy is now under the purview of the government.

4. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/130/text?r=15&s=1

To require the safe storage of firearms and ammunition, and to require the investigation of reports of improper storage of firearms or ammunition. Regulates how you store not only your guns, but your ammo. Creates a red flag system where anonymous friends/family/acquaintances can report you for improper ammo storage and ATF can come search your home.

5. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/167/text?r=7&s=1

To prohibit the transfer of a firearm at a gun show by a person who is not a federally licensed firearms dealer. No more private party transfers at gun shows.

That's Sheila Jackson and her "An AR weigh as much as 10 full moving boxes and use that 50 caliber round." Ain't nobody need that.

She's been trying to get that bill passed for several years.

2. Can we change our minds at the end of the 7 days? Might help out with some impulse buyers :laughing:

But on a serious note, what a load of commie horse shit

Here is a thought: are all those leftists who just bought guns going to support flood of antigun legislation about to hit the Congress?
