NJ: Honest conversation on guns needed

I was particularly struck by Ms. Allen’s touting of the National Rifle Association’s party line that laws aimed at keeping weapons from people intent on crime are futile. I suppose the logic is that since criminals don’t follow laws, a society shouldn’t have any. Citizens of America are being played. The discussion of gun safety is so much more nuanced than what the NRA funds everyone to believe. If every citizen, reporter and politician would just be honest in their conversations about gun safety, with full disclosure of everyone’s motives and funders, we would all move toward a safer society.

First she says she wants an "honest conversation", and proceeds to tell the monumental lie:

"Concealed carry reciprocity is a states’ rights issue."

It is emphatically NOT. The 10th Amendment reserves to the federal government the powers delegated to it by the Constitution. Article IV Section 1 vests in Congress the power to mandate "by general laws" Full Faith and Credit of all states' "public Acts, Records and judicial Proceedings" to apply to every other state.

IOW, if Congress says the states have to honor other states' permits, then THEY HAVE TO HONOR OTHER STATES' PERMITS.

I have come to believe that when a liberal uses the word"nuanced," he is simply saying that those who'D disagree are simply so ignorant that they don't understand that, no matter what the real, actual facts are, the liberal position is correct.... no matter what.

MarkHamTownsend -

They believe that making something more complex makes it 'smarter' or 'better. - Natural Law would argue otherwise, and take a guess who wins THAT argument?

To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them... — Richard Henry Lee
