  •  Good question for Wayne La Pierre. If you took (6+ / 0-)

    him out of the equation, the entire mood of the debate changes.

    •  Oppose federalizing concealed carry! (11+ / 0-)

      Whatever you feel about the "right" of people in predominantly rural areas or where the gun culture is loose to allow everyone to be armed in public, that just isn't possible or sensible where people live in close proximity.  If North Dakota wants to allow mentally ill wife beaters and felons to own and publicly carry guns, fine.  Let them.  But my county in CA has more people than ND and our metro area would be one of the largest states.  We have very strict gun laws and in most counties concealed carry is almost impossible.  Why should a visitor from ND be able to carry his gun here because he is afraid of our diverse populace?  Why should anyone from a loose state like Florida that allows felons to own guns or a state that let's anyone concealed carry dictate what those people can do when they come here?

      If they want us to stop telling rural states what to do, they should not try to undermine our more restrictive laws.  Stay home with your gun and feel safe.  Fine with me.  But stay home.

      The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.
