Ive been keeping an eye on this bill for a while now and to me it just seems like a huge waste of time and energy. States have very good reasons not to share reciprocity with other states, mainly differing training requirements, who is the govt to step in and say different?

For me personally, it's a moot point...my state already shares reciprocity with any and all other states I'd want or need to set foot in. I've NO desire to go to CA, IL, or the northeast to begin with.

Call it apathy if you want, but i think our efforts are better spent on more pertinent issues regarding gun rights.

Makes sense, I stand corrected

These State "laws" that are being trumped are not the "will of the people", but the will of the ruling bodies. I know, I live in one of those State's that don't honor carry permits from other states. And that is not due to what the people want, it's because of what our Governor and AG want.

If you want to see the will of the people, have the issue put to a national vote. Otherwise, you really can't say "the will of the people" when our elected officials don't truly represent our will.

As far as your statement about no permit to own/carry, that's something I agree/disagree with.
The Governor was voted in by the people. We don't live in a direct democracy we live in a representative republic. This law sounds good but has two issues that I see. One is that it is trumping state law and I don't like that. Two is that although reciprocity will be mandated, state law must still be followed and those vary greatly state to state. There will be gun owners that go to jail due to ignorance of the specifics of the law of the state they are in and while that is their own fault the penalties for violating those laws are much more severe than violating a traffic law.

That's very true. Just being in possession of an AR15 made after September, 1994(?) with a collapsible stock or a bayonet lug or having post-ban hi-cap mags - that can hold more than 10 rounds - might just be a felony in New York. What does that do to your gun rights everywhere in the country? Bad news.

Rather than mandate a reciprocity bill, how about formally incorporating the Second Amendment against the states, just as many other amendments in the BoR have been? Wanna do 4473 background checks? I'm against it, but I'd tolerate it when purchasing from FFLs or stores. Don't mess with face-to-face sales and we're OK. But that should go for every firearm and registration of any firearm should be illegal.

Personal transfers are already being screwed with in ma. If by some chance you can get your hands on hard copies of the paperwork it won't be accepted anyway. So you have 2 options, pay a dealer for the transfer which limits you to the ag's stupid list or go to the e_fa10 at which point you need all info for both parties. No more guns popping up out of mid air. If the person is from a non-license state you can't do it.

Right, the Governor WAS voted in by the people. Just like Every representative, senator (both, state and US) and president. But, that doesn't mean they can pass whatever they want (granted, they do, but..) and you say "it's the will of the people". No, it's not. The people are fickle and you really can't predict how they will side on an issue when it is presented to them.

Almost everyone thought the people of California would vote against Prop 8. They instead voted FOR it. It was later overturned.

The people's will is not shown in who they vote into office. It's not what the elected officials dictate it to be.

As a Republic, our elected officials are supposed to actually represent us, not what they think we want. If they are not 100% certain, they are supposed to ask us.

Hmmm... formally incoporating the Second Amendment for all states?? And that would mean what, exactly? The 2A does not allow for concealed carry, it isn't even concerned with an AR with "a collapsible stock or a bayonet lug or having post-ban hi-cap mags". So, how exactly would that be any different?

Short answer, it wouldn't.

As far as laws restricting this that and the other thing and getting arrested for violating this law or whatever...

Check the laws of the states being traveled though, or that you want to go to with your guns.

Here in MA, our AG doesn't allow XDs. HOWEVER, a lawful gun owner in CT, RI VT or NH that owns one, and wants to go to a range here in MA, CAN bring it with them - as well as their hi-cap mags.

Our retarded laws concerning firearms restrictions fall under "consumer protection", so all the "illegal" guns that would be coming into our state, won't get you locked up. All that crap means is that we (subjects of the Commonwealth) can't buy them from retailers.

Really? I have had no issues with hard copies. Nor have many of the other firearms owners I know. So, where's you proof? (or are you reading crap people say on the internet and taking their word for it?)

If you go to any of the local police departments in the area they will tell you there are no fa-10 forms available. This has been the situation since shortly after the Efa-10 was introduced. I had a bunch of spares in anticipation of this and was informed I could not use them and that peoples transfers had been rejected for doing so. I went over to my buddies shop and asked him and he verified. Efa-10 or dealer transfer only. It's another way for them to limit what is available for people of ma.

If enforced reciprocity would just stay at that level it would be OK. But "the lord" (not capitalized) giveth and "the lord" taketh away. The feds (not capitalized) are trying to play "the lord". Once they control gun rights and pre-empt states' rights they are likely to replace states' permits with national permits that include the requirement to register all your guns. Then the next thing would be to revoke all the permits and use the lists of guns/owners to confiscate them.
