JDAMS- afraid you are mistaken. VERY mistaken. That measure WAS passed by the House. There is NO similar measure in the Senate. Unless they pass it, it will not go to the President for his signature. Until THAT happens, it is not law. And the holdout state will not be Hawaii, but Illinois, which HAS no concealed carry permit system.
Very true, and if it ever made it that far, I'm sure we can count on our always competent commander in chief to pass it... You know, cuz he's so pro gun and all.
I'm just shocked at the fact that the federal government can put their hands into so many things because "The US Constitution constitutes federal jurisdiction over states" except for the 2nd amendment. Of course maybe I'm luck that they stay out of it. I dunno.
I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.
