Concealed Carry Reciprocity passes House

Georgia’s 9th District Congressman Doug Collins was a co-sponsor and managed the rule debate on the floor for H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would allow people who are lawfully permitted to carry a concealed firearm in their home states to carry concealed firearms in other states that allow the practice. H.R. 38 passed 231-198 in the House late yesterday afternoon.

Congressman Collins said,

As a member of Congress, I have a duty to uphold American liberties—including the right to bear arms—for current and future generations. I cosponsored the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act because I believe the Second Amendment doesn’t end at state borders. Our forefathers didn’t cement our right to defend ourselves and our families as a philosophical exercise—they were protecting freedoms that they recognized as essential elements of our democracy. The Second Amendment will always be one of those foundational liberties, and today’s vote affirms that.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, was a top priority for the NRA and other gun-rights groups. Democrats expect to block the measure in the Senate.

It’s states rights when it comes to Negroes, homos and anything else Republicans oppose, or on other matters support, at the state level. And good national government if that’s the means to stymie or implement the Republican agenda.

Care to expound on this rambling blurb? I’m not quite getting the “Negroe and homo” part…Be sure and put something in about abortion while you’re at it.

Since Georgia does not have a ‘concealed’ carry permit, only a carry permit, how are we affected? Anybody care to explain the legalese?
