"...none of the pro-gun bills designed to help protect our Second Amendment rights have been passed and one has to wonder why. It seems to be the perfect time to get these measures through committee and the floors of both chambers of Congress, but the White House is another measure. Barack Obama has made it obviously clear that he is very much against guns, the Second Amendment and would love nothing more than to confiscate every privately own firearm in America."
Four critical bills are before Congress:
1. SB 2205, Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, introduced by Sen Jerry Moran (R-KS). This bill is designed to keep the Obama administration from signing the UN Arms Trade Treaty.
2. SB 2213, Respecting States’ Rights and Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, introduced by Sen John Thune (R-SD). This bill is designed to require all states to recognize and accept a valid conceal carry permit from another state.
3. HB 822, National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011, introduced by Rep Cliff Stearns (R-FL). This bill is similar to SB 2213. It was introduced last year and passed by the House and sent to the Senate where it has sat untouched by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
4. HR 2900, Secure Access to Firearms Enhancement (SAFE) Act, introduced by Rep Paul Braun (R-GA). “To amend chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, to provide for reciprocity in regard to the manner in which nonresidents of a State may carry certain concealed firearms in that State.”
