Think about the idiocy we see out of Congress on a daily basis ... no matter which party is in the majority.
Even when a smart person gets elected to Congress, it seems they come home afterward with a marked reduction in reasoning powers and the ability to make sound everyday decisions. I do not want a herd of 535 people like that with the additional authority of oversight for a national permit to have the ability to introduce one bill and in one sweeping vote, revoke my legal right to carry.
Be careful of that for which you wish. The restrictions on state-to-state concealed carry are an inconvenience, but the federal government directly controlling the process for all 50 ststes would be intolerable. They already think they have the right to do so. Let's not hand it to them!
And we just went legitimately L&CR, I realize.
