well I'm sure it's dead now. Unless it gets voted out of House and Senate before next few days, everyone goes home to campaign. Then it'll have to be reintroduced all over again in January.
Seems like a no brainer, but right now the left isn't doing any gun things that are positive.

Not a believer in government "permission slips", but the U.S. House did its job and passed it.
The U.S. Senate punted on it after the Las Vegas/Mandalay Bay sniper shootings, but GOT WHAT IT WANTED with the Fix-NICS amendment to one of the spending bills/CRs/etc. That was last legislative year.
The Senate has been so very busy this year confirming one judge to the SCOTUS.
Can't do more than one thing in one legislative year, right? [Well, except naming US Post Offices and highways!]
I fault "Majority Leader" Mitch McConnell and the GOP/RINO Senate.
But the NRA will continue to give them "A" ratings. JMO.
VOTE THEM OUT!

Republicans have not paid back gun owners for their continued support through the years. I guess they just take our margins for granted.
I am done voting for now. I have had it with the spineless Republican Party. They had full power to pass reciprocity, reclassify suppressors as AOW, and repeal ObamaCare. They did none of it.

I don't think it's widely appreciated that the Republican party IS the Progressive party. We have Theodore Roosevelt to thank for this transition towards the ubiquitous Federal government, which we "enjoy" today, back at the turn of the century. Sure, there were a few anomalies over the years, like Robert Taft and Barry Goldwater, but through the decades, only Calvin Coolidge broke through, to become president. Where else is a Conservative, or Libertarian to find a home, the Democrat party, which, beginning with Woodrow Wilson, also adopted Progressivism and then in later years eventually fully embraced Marxism? Yeah, I don't think so.
This is why Ronald Reagan's "A Time for Choosing" speech, and later his administration, was such a radical departure from decades of Republican Progressivism. But, of course, we have George H. W. Bush to thank for steering the ship of state firmly back towards Progressivism and ensuring that the Conservative and Libertarian voices in the party were effectively squelched.
I appreciate and share the frustration with the Republican party, but if we roll up our sleeves, Coolidge and Reagan demonstrated that right thinking people are so numerous, that it is possible to break through and preserve that which we hold dear. Abandoning the Republican party is effectively tacit support (AKA, a lack of resistance) for a Marxist Democrat future, where this country will be fundamentally changed into a Marxist worker's paradise. We already have plenty of examples of what that looks like, in the USSR, China, North Korea, East Germany and the other Soviet Bloc states, Cuba, Venezuela, etc. As distasteful as Progressivism is, do we really want to sit back while people like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez do to this country, what Pol Pot did to Cambodia?
Long term, we need a reinvigorated Bill of Rights, which limits the power, reach and scope of the Federal government. But, we'll also need additional checks on their incrementalism, starting with the Supreme Court. Are any of our "representatives" going to vote to curtail their power and influence? Hell no! That is why the Convention of States is the only viable solution to our ubiquitous nanny state, which treats the citizens as cattle.
Reagan - "A Time for Choosing"
Levin - "The Restoration of the Republic"

Does anyone live in Louisiana? I’m always watching new anti-2A bills being pushed in LA and would like to join forces with someone or an organization, to fight these bills.
Here is a list of bills the Louisiana Senate and House are trying to pass into law:
SB155 age restrictions under 21
SB274 age restrictions under 21
SB383 ammunition purchase registration
- SB383 is PENDING A VOTE IN SENATE JUDICIARY B
SB231 ACT367 additional NICS reporting became law 10/1/18
HB852 creates a crime of transferring or lending a firearm without NICS check
HB736 “assault weapon” and magazine ban
HB603 “assault weapon” and magazine ban
HB400 creates a crime of transferring a firearm without NICS check
SB282 prohibits possession of weapon in stalker situations. Red flag law
HB448 no nonsense red flag law.
HB357 hate crime law that enhances the current felon can’t have a weapon law
- HB357 is currently waiting for SENATE FINAL PASSAGE
SB491 prohibits rapid fire devices. Anything that enhances a semi-auto weapon.
- this bill specifically names “reciprocating stocks”
- their is a notation that states if will be something says EFFECTIVE DATE 1/1/2019.
I constantly emai Senators, Representative, and the GOA. It doesn’t seem to work. We need to join forces.
Anyone in states other than Louisiana is welcome to conctact me. It doesn’t matter where the laws are being passed. They all create a trickle effect.

My understanding is that national reciprocity has already passed a majority in Congress. We now need 2/3 of the Senate to make it happen. I donít think Trump would veto such a bill coming out of the Senate unless it was linked to some other issue he was strongly against such as zero funding for the wall. Besides, where will the needed Democratic votes come from in orders to get to 2/3 support in the Senate? Republicans only hold a slim majority. Not enough to push through this kind of legislation. Alsoí when push comes to shove, not all Republicans would be on board.
The second amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms without distinction of open carry or concealed carry or state line. States should not have the ability to create legislation to take away any of our constitutional rights. Whatís next? The elination of free speech or the right to an attorney or the presumption of innocence until proven guilty? Perhaps search and seizure protection should be eliminated? Itís not possible to hire enough police to respond in time to prevent most crimes. Most reported crimes are investigated by police after the fact. I donít mean that police donít do a good job, only that they have limited resources. Individuals must be allowed to defend themselves. Placing rediculous restrictions on how to carry or transport a firearm only apply to the good guys. Bad guys do not subject themselves to the law. Good guys with guns are a deterrant for bad guys. The highest crime rates are in those areas that have the strictest gun laws.

these fall victim to the swamp rats.
this NP was reintroduced - lets face it - in a political climate knowing house dems would not even pass it to senate so now these do nothing 19% approval rating congress do-nothings can spin to their voting cult. Sad affairs in the swamp for sure.

What incentive do politicians in DC have to further gun rights for people? They get elected for promoting gun control and they get elected by doing nothing. We make it very easy for them to ignore us. No reason to go out on a limb on a controversial topic whether it's gun rights, border security, immigration etc. These issues go unresolved for years because it's safer for them to do nothing or to placate the left. The squeaking wheels are getting greased because we don't speak up (in mass).

^I think maybe the 'better' or best available strategy would be to guide local politicians to expand recognition of other state permits or to roll back regulation to simply make it 'easier' for people to carry, as in no permit needed. bypass congress all together. Our problem is relying on national gov't to do things for us which then somehow gives them authority to do things to us.

What needs to happen is a SCOTUS decision that simply FORCES the states to accept (Under the FFaC clause) a carry permit from another state. The End. No national databases, no new federal permits, no new fees. After all, this is what the left wanted with marriage licenses. Same logical thinking applies when talking about any state issued license. Although the left will never admit it.
