House Republicans are planning to begin consideration today of a bill that would allow concealed carry permit holders to carry a concealed handgun in any state where concealed carry is not restricted. Right now, 49 states allow some form of concealed carry. Democrats have been fighting to stop the bill from coming up for consideration:
DAILY CALLER: The House of Representatives will consider a bill on Tuesday allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry handguns across state lines.
A floor vote is expected on the National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act, a bill introduced by Florida Republican Cliff Stearns and North Carolina Democrat Heath Shuler.
The legislation would allow those with permits to carry a concealed handgun in any state where concealed carry is not restricted. Forty nine states currently allow some form of concealed carry, but the training and requirements for obtaining a permit vary.
The bill is poised to pass the Republican-controlled House: It has more than 245 co-sponsors, and it survived the markup process intact, despite numerous attempts by Democrats to amend it. . . . Read More
Here are two ads put out by the Republican Party of Virginia. The ads focus on the behavior of Virginia Democrats Tom Perriello and Rick Boucher when Mexican President Felipe Calderon spoke to a Joint Session of Congress and advocated for reinstating the Assault Weapons Ban. He did so under the false statement that most of the assault weapons in Mexico are coming from the United States.
The ads point out that Congressional Democrats “couldn’t get to their feet fast enough” to applaud Calderon when he made his statement. The ads urge people to call Perriello or attend a Boucher Town Hall Meeting and ask them if they stood up for Calderon, or if they stand up for the Second Amendment.
