    This would drive some state LEO's and their political masters up the wall. People in those states would be gettin' out of state CCW/CWP's where they can't get 'em in their home states. (Like MD forinstance).

    AZ's CWP requires 'training'... so we're good to go if this passes. :celebrate

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said the bill would "incite a dangerous race to the bottom in our nation's gun laws." He said his own state, which has strict gun control laws, would have to accept concealed weapons permits from states such as Arizona, which issues permits to people with drinking problems, or Alaska, where people with violent misdemeanor convictions can get permits.


    Time for Chuck to get thrown out of office. These Dems are the s@#$iest ppl on the planet. Time to throw some chlorine in the legislator pool.

    Yep, they require 60 votes to get an amendment through. If they had done it as a straight up bill it would have passed.
