US House Passes H.R. 822

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed an important self-defense measure that would enable millions of Right-to-Carry permit holders across the country to carry concealed firearms while traveling outside their home states. H.R. 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act, passed by a majority bipartisan vote of 272 to 154. All amendments aimed to weaken or damage the integrity of this bill were defeated.

This bill does not affect existing state laws. State laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within each state’s borders. H.R. 822 does not create a federal licensing system or impose federal standards on state permits; rather, it requires the states to recognize each others’ carry permits, just as they recognize drivers’ licenses and carry permits held by armored car guards

Turnout heavy in opposition to WA ‘assault weapon’ bill

Just cross-linking this article for those of you tracking the new “assualt weapon” ban bill in Washington State. If you actually read this bill is the most ridiculous thing I’ve seen in a long time, its so much more than an assault weapon ban..and they can’t even define assault weapon properly.
