H.R. 822 (National Right to Carry) Passes House

H.R. 822 (National Right to Carry) Passes House

The National Right to Carry Act, a piece of legislation that would enable those with concealed carry permit in any state to carry in every other state that issues concealed carry permits, has passed the House of Representatives with flying colors. The final vote was almost 2:1 in favor of the bill, mostly along party lines with Republicans in favor of passage. Heck, even one of the representatives from Illinois rose in support of the bill, stating that he wanted the passage of the bill to send a message to the governor of his state that concealed carry needs to be enacted in that state, just like it has been in the other 49 states in the Union. The debate was fascinating to watch . . .


Now for a little comedy check out this link.It was number one on google search about HR 822.The comments are stacking up well.(With a little help from me),Feel free to help.

As one of Congress’s most vocal advocates for reducing gun violence, I wish to express my disappointment with the House leadership and many of my colleagues after the passage of H.R. 822, the National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act.

How nice my congressional rep

How nice my congressional rep wants to actually leave what ever cave she lives in and share her wealth of knowledge with the public.

Can I tell you something
Got to tell you one thing
If you expect the freedom
That you say is yours
Prove that you deserve it
Help us to preserve it
Or being free will just be
Words and nothing more

They are trying so hard to

They are trying so hard to start civil war.

I reserve the right to govern myself.

House Passage of H.R. 822 Last Week

Congressman Paul Paul was not among the 245 cosponsors or 272 votes for H.R. 822 (National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act) on November 16. What is his position on this legislation?

He also was one of two U.S. Representatives who signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief in the Heller case but did not do so in the McDonald case.

Finally, Dr. Paul was one of three Republican congressmen -- joining anti-gun colleagues Mike Castle and Chris Shays -- to vote twice against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act which shut down frivolous lawsuits against the firearms industry that attempt to bankrupt them by holding them civilly liable for the criminal misuse of their products by others.

We can't have it both ways...

Although HR 822 attempts to advance the natural right to bear arms, it does so at the expense of fundamental principles of federalism.

Even if we believe that current gun law in some States is poorly coordinated, cumbersome, or in plain violation of the natural right to defend life and property through arms, nothing in the Constitution prohibits a state from passing a bad gun law, because the document doesn't address the scope of State power. And nothing in the Constitution permits the Federal government to assert itself in interstate gun law.

We shouldn't accept this bill as good policy any more than we would the idea of forcing states into coordinating educational standards or the requirements for drivers licensing.

I noticed that Dr. Paul did not vote on the measure (http://www.gop.gov/votes/112/1/852), presumably since he's on the campaign trail. I'm pretty confident, though, that his vote would have been a resounding "Nay."

Rise up and take the power back
It's time the fat cats had a heart attack
You know that their time is coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend.

There were amendments to it

That addressed what you have concern with.None of them passed,It came though straight up and this I am sure Ron would support.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

How about following the

How about following the constitution?

For those that see the right to carry as a privilege(a common error) I present this...

Article. IV.

Section. 2.The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States

For those that see the right to bear arms as a god given or natural right;the 2nd amendment declares so...

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Things become simple and clear if those in government were to follow the supreme law of the land.

13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he shall hate the one, and love the other, or else he shall lean to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and riches. - Luke 16

I am a certified CCW instructor

and have certified many people for permits.

But, I won't apply for a permit myself, and I don't have one, because I stand on my right to keep and bear arms as protected by the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, in the Bill of Rights.

I realize that this exposes me to potential harm at the hands of the state when I carry.
I still certify people, because they want to protect themselves and don't want to pay jail time for carrying their weapon, and that is their choice.

My choice is to exercise my right, even at my own peril.

I went and got my CCW

I got it in like 05 sometime around there in AZ.I gave it up against much protest because it comes up attached to your vehicle license plate in other states like Ca. As soon as they run your plate it tells them to pull you over and check to see if you are packing concealed and loaded because you are a CCW holder.Do a lot of traveling back and forth to Ca. I did not want the hassle of being pulled over all the time and searched.If this gets passed they will have to honor Az.law of right to carry concealed.

It is so good to hear this point of view

from another . I also carry, because it is my right. The right to protect yourself with a gun is already established. If it is my right, it is my right, there are no half-rights. So why must I get a license to do something I have a right to do?

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

Doesn't legislation to authorize concealed

carry, contradict the fact that we have the right to bear arms? Why would they be so arrogant as to authorize a right?


This should not become federal law because the Constitution does not authorize the feds to regulate it.
Once the feds start regulating something, just wait a few years and they will regulate tighter.

That McCarthy is a doozie, isn't she??!!

Yeah, when I'm watching the local news and they are talking about a shooting, they always flash a copy of the assailants permit to carry. Because most people that commit violent crimes do so within the context of the law *sarcasm*

And I'm sure that the leaders of large gangs always make sure every gang member applies for a permit to carry, they sure wouldn't want to break the law and carry a weapon illegally *sarcasm*

And yet, here she is, whining about honest people carrying a weapon to defend themselves. *disgust*

Please go comment as I did

It may go a long way to exposing the ignorance of the Constitution.
