It’s a major improvement. What is correct constitutionally is that the government (at any level) should have to show cause why I should not be allowed to carry any arm I wish in any manner I choose. We threw away our right to fully automatic weapons in a side effect of prohibition, that too (the National Firearm Act) should be challenged.

Passed by the House as H.R. 822 and pending in the Senate as S. 2188 “The National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act”, is legislation which would require each state that issues pistol carry licenses to recognize those issued by other states. The debate over this issue has created a strange situation — committed leftists who believe that Congress can mandate that the several states serve broccoli in school lunches, and who have no problem with federal bureaucrats controlling intrastate toilet design are suddenly “state’s rights” purists. They now utter sound bite phrases such as “… you can’t make the states recognize gun rights if they don’t want to…” Allied with these folks are some real defenders of liberty, who believe that Federal compulsion of the states for any purpose is wrong.
