Interesting efforts from both sides recently.
Left outrage: Congress is voting on a bill to allow CCW holders to carry across state lines regardless of the destination state’s laws. The lovely irony on this is that it pits the 2nd Amendment against the 10th Amendment and a win for the Right would be an enormous loss because it would establish a very big precedent of Federal over State’s rights.
Right Outrage: Bills are being pushed to close the gun show loophole. I’m all for that personally, but they’re lumping in any private transaction in almost any circumstance and requiring private parties do background checks without making any provisions for a way to actually, you know, DO a check. Based on the details this is likely a non-starter in Congress.
So there you have it, the Right pushes a bill that it probably doesn’t realize is terrible for it and the Left pushes a bill that it very likely knows has no chance of passing, walking the eternal line of “I’m against guns but no way will I vote against guns.”
