NRA Pushing for Standardized Gun Carry Laws

April 27, 2014  | 

The NRA is focusing its efforts on standardizing concealed carry laws across all 50 states. 

NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told the Associated Press that gun laws vary so widely that some states require strict background checks before issuing a CCW permit and a handful not even requiring a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

The NRA hosted its 143rd annual convention in Indianapolis this past week.

I can hear it now...Nanny Bloomberg's minions whining, "But the country will be like Dodge City...all those white guys with guns! Oh, the humanity".

well it a perfect USA itd be a great idea. but this ain't gonna get no support from no liberal executive branch. if a conservative gets in office (republican or democrat) then it may have a chance to happen other than that its a pipe dream. and the communist leftist states will never go along with it ie California, New York, Conn, Mass, etc id sure like to be apart of it anyway.

Before I get blasted as a liberal, let me say that I own about 20 long and short firearms and carry concealed. I believe very strongly that strict and uniform concealed carry laws should be in place nationwide. I believe that thorough background checks should be a requirement for purchase, and that safety and proficiency testing should be a requirement for carry. Police officers making a field or traffic stop should be able to inquire about carry permits and to see them. Drivers' licenses should reflect approved carry.

Even Traffic Laws vary greatly from state to state. Each state has its own authority to pass laws as it sees fit and it is easily arguable that not just gun laws should be consistent from state to state but also Marihuana Laws, Traffic Laws, Sentencing laws, Fines etc... It is hard enough to know from one state to the next when you are unintentionally committing a crime or not. So all laws should be standardized across the country which would clear up many problems for everyone.

Call me paranoid but all those lists of CCW holders make for a good way to have them at our door asking for our guns. Just saying.....

D [email protected] I saw the same thing in the movie Red Dawn. Nobody has ever been asked to give up a legally obtained, legal firearm. But this is the same example every NRA member uses. Well, it has never happened and it's highly unlikely to happen. Only those breaking the law, making crazy threats or joining terrorist organizations (NRA) are likely to find their guns legally seized. And so it begins...
