It will most likely pass the House tomorrow, but will have trouble in the Senate. Bundling it with the Fix NICS Act might help get a few more votes. The Fix NICS act just better holds military, state, and federal agencies accountable for turning over criminal records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

I would love to see it passed, but it's not going to be without its issues. States that are not cc friendly will find ways to make it miserable on people who try to carry from states they didn't previously recognize. Think states with magazine limits, you get pulled over with 15 instead of 10 and they are going to hem you up.

Alot of the "top cops" as they like to say are against this.

I too want it to pass but certain states WILL still give us as much crap as they can.

Here's an example.

When the state of Illinois pass the casino law allowing casinos in the state the city of Metropolis just across the river from Paducah allowed one to be there. Ever though it was allowed by LAW the Sheriff and Police Chief were against it and they showed it, they ever said so publicly. The first 3-5 years after it opened if you had a out of state tag on you auto they would watch you like you was a major criminal. If you went one single mile over the limit they pulled you over. They were stopping everybody they thought might be a "little" DUI and most people just didn't drink over there at all, I didn't. They have backed way off from those first years and the Sheriff is gone. My point is ever though it's allowed by law the "local" people will still try to give us a hard time.

Good question, but SCOTS did rule that DC had to allow permits(as all other states)...so I don't think they would be treated differently than the states.

Yes, BUT, a person carrying in another state and city better check on their local gun laws. You still be limited by the magazine laws and /or any other laws they have. All of you know Tennessee's carry laws but what about the state you are traveling to and the cities you will be traveling though?? You better know them before traveling.

We can use our states driver's licenses and state tags on our autos BUT we have to follow the state and local laws we travel though, like speed limits for example. This will be no different. If this law passes and Trump signs it we WILL be able to use our cards to carry in any state BUT we will have to follow all their local firearms laws. The first few years a LOT of people will get into trouble thinking it will be just like their own state laws while not knowing the state and local laws they must follow as they travel though.

I don't see that as a significant issue at all. That is no different than permit reciprocity between states today. No one with a semi-functional brain thinks since they have a Texas drivers license and Texas allows you to drive 75 mph on Interstates then you can drive 75mph in the other 49 states.

That's not really a good analogy. Speed limits are posted. Laws requiring you to inform an officer if you're carrying, magazine capacity, where you can and can't carry, etc are not.

Now granted, a fair majority of people who carry regularly understand they need to know the laws, but you will have plenty of people who just assume they can carry and are good to go. If you think about it, most states that allow carry and honor permits from multiple states have similar laws on the books. States like California, New York, Massachusetts, and others are very very different. There will be issues that come from this.

How much difference is there between Tennessee carry law and the gun laws of DC, NYC, the states of Connecticut and the other 48 states????

The difference is all states and locals POST their speed limits. In Tennessee you CAN pack a gun with 15 rounds, what happens if you have a mag with 15 rounds in DC, NYC, etc? They are not going to post it on signs over there.A lot of people don't ever know that today and once this law passes a lot WILL think well it will just be like carrying in Tennessee then take their family vacation in DC while packinmg their 15 round mag. They will NOT spend the time to look it up. A bunch will get away with it only because people will not know they are packing.

Don't get me wrong, I'm 100% for this law going though but people will NOT take the time to do any research, just go by what they've been doing for years in their own home state thing=king recipocoty makes it all the same. It doesn't really, just allows us to use our permits in each state, nothing more.

Very few traffic laws are posted folks. As I said most people with even a semi-functional brain understand you have to follow all laws in the states you travel to...traffic laws, hunting regs (maybe that would have been the better analogy, because speed limits are posted), gun laws, alcohol purchases, taxes etc...all which vary greatly across state lines.

I don't think this will be much different.

Not completely true. This “Fix NICS Act” puts thousands of disabled veterans at risk because the basis of their disability, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), can be a reason to reject a background check for a gun purchase. A TBI is essentially no different than a concussion and is not, in itself, a determiner of an individual’s mental fitness to responsibly own a weapon. This is a slippery slope which will allow someone’s medical history to determine their 2nd Amendment rights without due process.

Unless a veteran has been committed to a mental institution against his/her will or otherwise deemed mentally unstable by a medical professional they don't have anything to worry about.

I have never heard of a brain injury as a basis of rejecting a bg check/gun purchase. If you have an example please direct me toward it.
