    I'm on theBrady Bunch's mailing listand just got this:



    Dear xxxx,

    Imagine ... loaded, hidden handguns being carried nearly anywhere and everywhere, by anyone regardless of the law in your state.

    That's what 22 U.S. Senators are pushing. Their legislation would force states, like your state, to allow dangerous people to carry hidden guns in public.

    And look who's sponsoring the bill:

    Senator Tom Coburn, who forced through outrageous "guns in parks" legislation as an amendment to the popular credit card bill in May;

    Senator John Ensign, whose personal crusade is to gut Washington, DC's gun laws; and other A-rated NRA legislators who seek to weaken our country's gun laws in the name of "rights" and "freedom" with no reference to "responsibility."

    These are the gun lobby's henchmen — and we need your help to stop them.

    Donate now to support the Brady Campaign's all-out opposition to national concealed carry legislation.

    If this legislation passes, it could dramatically increase the number of individuals who carry concealed handguns in public in your state ... even if your state legally bars these particular individuals from possessing guns.

    Out-of-state residents who would never qualify for New York or California concealed carry permits would now be able to legally "pack heat" in your community. It reduces gun laws in all states to the "lowest common denominator" of those states with weakest gun laws.

    This is madness. Please, in the name of common sense gun laws and public safety, donate to the Brady Campaign now.

    We don't need more people carrying concealed handguns — on neighborhood streets, on buses, at sporting events, in public parks, or anywhere.

    Please help us stop this legislation ASAP. Give your support to the Brady Campaign today. Thank you.


    Sincerely,

    Sarah Brady, Chair

    If Sarah is so upset about that, imagine how she'll feel when she learns that the government allows people who are too young to get a permit anywhereto shoot fully automatic weapons and use explosives.

    That's what 22 U.S. Senators are pushing. Their legislation would force states, like your state, to allow dangerous people to carry hidden guns in public.


    OH noes!11!People with no criminal records and no serious mental health issues will also be carrying guns, instead of just people with criminal records and serious mental health issues!


    And look who's sponsoring the bill:

    Senator Tom Coburn, who forced through outrageous "guns in parks" legislation as an amendment to the popular credit card bill in May;

    I love how they put the words rights and freedom in quotes. As if they aren't the best reasons to fight for something in America. You almost hear the disdain for liberty when you read this crap.

    The sad thing is that we're trying to pass a law giving us what we already have by right.

    The saddest sightof all in this whole thing is how they put quotations around the words "freedom" and "rights". As if they are something that can and should be downgraded to make their argument valid.

    It's a sad day for our nation when the Land of the Free thatguarantees rights for all it'scitizens.... becomes the Land of the "Free" that guarantees "certain rights" for its subjects.

    I was looking at S.845, and something stood out to me. Paragraph (1) deals with people who have CC permits. Paragraph (2) deals with people "otherwise than as described in paragraph (1)" and those people "may carry a concealed firearm in accordance with the laws of the State in which the person resides."

    I see the potential for conflict, because one would still have to obey the restrictions of other states regarding places where CC is allowed. However, this is where it gets interesting for me. Because Colorado allows people to CC in a vehicle without having a permit. Colorado law defines a handgun in a vehicle as not being concealed, regardless of how it's physically carried or transported. Therefore, if this bill becomes law in its current form, I could drive to any state that allows CC, and as long as I never got out of my car, I would be perfectly legal without having any kind of a permit at all!
