    There is a bill in congress that would allow your carry permit to be treated like a drivers license. If you have one in one state, then it's good in all states.

    Here are two articles on the subject.

    The first:

    FBI Stats Correlate with CCW Popularity, notes Gun Dean

    and the second:

    Packing Heat: Bill would erase state limits on concealed guns

    It would also let the Feds usurp state laws. Once they get their foot in the door, they will try to take control. And what if they change their minds and then ban guns?

    national registration of gun owners, not the guns. Don't know why the Bradies, et al are against this.

    According to what I've read all it does is make your existing state license legal in all other states like a drivers license. No other registration required, no transfer of information to the Feds.

    I don't believe it's a National Registration of Gun Owners.

    I believe it is just a new "permission" that says, "If you have a concealed permit in one state then it's good in all other states". Just like your current drivers license. It's not a national register.. it just means that if you are traveling across states, and you have an oregon concealed carry permit then you would be legal to carry in the other states that you pass through. I don't believe it gives registry, or issuance or granting permission to the feds.

    As was said in the other thread on this issue, this is purely political. This has no chance of passing in the Senate and even if by some miracle it did, Obama would vetoe it. This is the Republicans in the House trying to ginn up support from their base in advance of the 2012 elections. This will go nowhere.

    Suuuurre,right. I'm with F o F here.It will become a registration issue
    Nope. If they start acting on a national reciprocity,they will most likely to use any and all info they can get from it.
    Having the states in our gun rights is enough,the last thing we want to do is have the Feds do any more than they need to when it has to do with our gun rights

    I think this is a double edged sword.Let's just leave this on a state level and let them decide what states' permits they will honor.

    This is not "the Republicans in the House trying to ginn up support from their base in advance of the 2012 elections".

    Rep. Cliff Stearns has submitted the same or similar bill every session for a decade and supported it for sixteen years.

    I say again "The only gun laws we need should be to keep gun from felons until or unless their rights are restored" all other gun laws should be abolished, except for no guns in bars if you are drinking.

    Sorry, I'm not buying it. I'm willing to accept that Cliff Stearns is sincere, but he's also naive at best. The rest of the supporters of this bill are supporting it primarily for votes knowing it has no chance of passing, but will get them points with their gun owning base prior to the 2012 elections. Call me cynical, but I've seen this charade before.
