    I find it odd that those who claim the second amendment as some sort of sacred cow that is beyond question never go out and argue for my right to carry a sword in public. They never ask for a repeal of state laws regarding concealed knives such as longer fixed blades. They don't seem to interested in my right to own a stun gun in certain states. They seem to care less that I'm unable to go to the mall with a poleaxe. Why is that? I'm sure the 2nd amendment is the right to bear arms is it not? It's not just the right to bear firearms. In fact, it makes no mention of firearms at all. They're just assumed to be implied under the general term of arms/weapons. So where is the disconnect? Why are you not fighting for my right to conceal carry a poison dart gun?

    Great! Problem is there are a lot of gun owners that are not law abiding or responsible. But it seems all gun owner think everyone who carries is law abiding and that they can do no wrong. They also think that the 2nd Amendment means no amendments attached to it. Free to carry anywhere, anyplace at anytime. They think their rights should not be infringed upon but it is ok if all those innocent people killed by guns can have all their rights infringed upon and taken from them. Gun dealers and owners continue to enable criminals and evil people to have access to weapons and until they stop supplying weapons to these types of people we will enact laws to punish you for being irresponsible. BTW it is NOT non gun owners who are enabling criminals to get the guns!

    Why are you not fighting for your right? You start the movement to carry knives and I'm sure others will follow your lead, you must be the one to require your right to carry a knife because you are the one affected.

    @Bill2E Because that would make me a hypocrite. I'm not fighting at the behest of the gun manufacturing lobby to help increase it's profits on the corpses of millions of dead americans either. I belief in the right to own firearms but I also believe in limits on that right. I'm for registering ALL firearms of every caliber make and model. I'm for universal background checks of all sales. Do I believe that in the process of a private sell an owner should be forced to do a background check? No, but he should be required to sign over the weapon and have it registered to the new owner the same way I have to with my car. So I'm not lobbying for these things because that's not what I agree with. However, if the 2nd amendment is inviolate and the right to bear arms is a universal right under the constitution, then why are they not screaming those rights are being infringed when it comes to any other arms aside from firearms? You do see this seems to make them a bit hypocritical? I'm guessing the reason is the sword manufacturing lobby just doesn't pay as well. But if they want no infringements upon the right to bear arms they should act with equal vigor at all such incursions on those freedoms. That is, however, exactly what they don't do.

    It appears you have a straw argument, you really don't want to stand up for your right and expect gun owners to fight for rights on knife or sword owners, and you have a view of the 2nd amendment that we don't share. Right to Bear Arms in my opinion covers firearms, not knives. Going back to the writing of the second amendment reflects only guns.

    Personal responsibility may still have some value in this country? common sense may still apply? There may still be hope for law abiding people? Wonder how long it will take the politicians to totally screw this one over?

    Think this falls under the (shall not be lnfringed upon)? If marriages are good from state to state, some far less dangerous as gun transport should be a no brainer..and if you are trustworty in one state?

    @MongoAPillager God given rights, along with constitutional rights, guaranteed, will be taken by politicians if we let them. They can't help themselves it seems.

    @MongoAPillager Guns are a god given right? Name one instance in which Jesus spoke to the right to carry a Semi automatic rifle much less a machine gun. Just one.

    @Hillofbeans This is why Christians are dwindling in the USA. STUPID TALK. Nobody believes God has anything to do with 'gun rights" one way or the other. Except for RELIGIOUS NUTCASES.

    Absolutely I agree.
    It sucks that when I have a fare accross the border into Washington they don't have reciprocity laws with Oregon re: conceil permits.

    There are very few rules on transport of firearms, unless you're dealing with loaded firearms within easy access (which is a gray area in of itself). Just don't go flying down the interstate shooting road signs, or anything else that is obviously stupid, and stay out of the Communist regions of the US, such as California, New York, Maryland, Conn, Mass, Michigan, and a couple others, along with the Nazi controlled ghetto cracktowns like NYC, Detroit, and L.A., and there are very few rules.

    @jessejaymes Won't happen, that's a pipe dream you're having. Would be another Texas secession if it did. Slow down on the wacky tobakee.

    2nd amendment seems to be the only one that states can ignore. Every citizen should be allowed to carry a gun everyplace.

    We have many hunters that travel to our state. Making it easy for them to get here with their own firearms would encourage even more hunters and sportsmen to travel here! They would still have to pay for our state's hunting license for each type animal they are wanting to hunt. That's more money for the state and also money spent during their stay is more money for each community they go to! I can't think of a better southern state to hunt in than Arkansas! We have an abundance of hunted animals! A person would have to go to a far northern state, like Montana, to hunt for moose, elk and bears. This law would make it easy for hunters to travel there with their own firearms! More money for that state and it's communities also! This should become law. On a different point, carry and conceal permits being allowed from state to state. People would feel more secure knowing they could protect themselves while traveling by car if they could bring along a hand gun with their carry and conceal permit from their home state. I don't know the laws on how to pack guns to make them legal to fly, but hunters and travelers that have to go a long way to their destination would like to bring their own fire arms to hunt and those with carry and conceal permits would feel more secure knowing they could use their permit from their home state and their own hand gun at their destination.

    I think we need universal background checks, but once that hurdle is passed, there should be a minimum of regulation regarding where you go or how you carry your guns.
    I'd love to see a federal concealed carry law, that would solve a lot of problems.

    But then I'd hold a gun owner strictly accountable for anything he does with that gun.

    Once a person has passed a check and holds a CCW permit they should be able to carry anywhere in the US. It's ridiculous the patchwork of reciprocity laws we have.

    One should always be held accountable for their personal actions...especially with a gun.

    Doesn't this also make it easier for somebody to travel from one state to the other to sell guns at gun shows, flea markets, and etc. still without requiring background checks?
