    S. 176, the Common Sense Concealed Firearms Permit Act of 2011

    Even though this don't have any chance of passing, its worth posting.

    Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) introduced S. 176, the Common Sense Concealed Firearms Permit Act of 2011, last week. The text has finally become available.

    This bill, if passed, would convert "shall issue" concealed carry back to "may issue" nationwide. Moreover, it would abolish constitutional carry. The bill sets the requirement to show "good cause" which is at the center of lawsuits such as Kachalsky v Cacace, Peruta v San Diego, Muller v Maenza, and Woollard v Sheridan.

    Nowhere in the bill is any justification or finding that a Federal standard for concealed carry is constitutional. Traditionally, police powers, i.e. relating to health, safety, and welfare, have been left to the states.

    A BILL

    To establish minimum standards for States that allow the carrying of concealed firearms.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

    SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the `Common Sense Concealed Firearms Permit Act of 2011'.

    SEC. 2. CONCEALED FIREARMS PERMITS.

    (a) In General- Chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 926C, the following:

    `Sec. 926D. Concealed firearms permits

    `(a) In General- Each State that allows residents of the State to carry concealed firearms shall--

    `(1) establish a process to issue permits to residents of the State to carry concealed firearms; and

    `(2) require that each resident of the State seeking to carry a concealed firearm in the State obtain a permit through the process established under paragraph (1).

    `(b) Requirements- In establishing a process to issue permits to carry concealed firearms under subsection (a), a State shall--

    `(1) ensure that a local law enforcement agency participates in the process; and

    `(2) at a minimum, require that an applicant for a permit to carry a concealed firearm--

    `(A) be a legal resident of the United States;

    `(B) be not less than 21 years of age;

    `(C) demonstrate good cause for requesting a concealed firearm permit; and

    `(D) demonstrate that the applicant is worthy of the public trust to carry a concealed firearm in public.

    `(c) Law Enforcement Agency Report- If a State establishes a process under subsection (a) that allows for an agency other than a law enforcement agency to issue permits to carry concealed firearms, the process shall require that--

    `(1) a local law enforcement agency submit to the agency responsible for issuing permits a written report that describes whether the applicant meets the standards of the State to carry a concealed firearm; and

    `(2) the agency responsible for issuing permits maintain a report submitted under paragraph (1) in the file of the applicant.

    `(d) Definition- In this section, the term `local law enforcement agency' means a law enforcement agency of the unit of local government with jurisdiction of the area in which the applicant for a permit to carry a concealed firearm resides.

    I wish at least one of the Jewish members of congress would listen to the JPFO and would appreciate the concept of self-defense.

    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    Or what? Let me guess, the fed will withhold federal money from any state that does not comply. Just like they did for the 55 MPH speed limits of the past and forcing states to adopt a drinking age of 21. The fed likes to use economic blackmail to get around the constitution.

    So this beotch is trying to make someone prove a 'Need" for a firearm?

    Replace the words firearm, gun, pistol, or whatever is used in that bill and replace it with 'Fire Extinguisher" and see how ridiculous it looks.

    Naturally she would get to keep her permit as she "needs" it more than the serfs below her do. Goes for her buddy Feinstein as well.

    All I need to say about this is, "What the hell would Barbara Boxer know about common sense?"

    I believe that's all I need to say on this subject.

    "Common Sense" has been being used as the buzzword by the liberals for:

    "we got to somehow stop the freedoms our subjects currently enjoy by making it look like it is for their own good, because they are just stupid citizens who hired us as thei rking so we think for them because they are too stupid to think for themselves"

    You Reap What You Sow

    All of those who pushed for a national concealed carry law, congratulations. Fortunately, the same principles that applied to that effort (no federal authority to do so, won't pass Congress) apply. Please think the next time you believe that legislation at the national level is a good idea.
