    Even if you are not a "gun nut", you might think about the REST of the Bill of Rights. If they can limit gun rights, what about the rest of
    the amendments?

    That is a good point. I have mixed feelings about "sanctuary cities," but I read an article today that pointed out that there is nothing in law that can force a locality to uphold federal laws. They pointed out that if a
    president, federal entity, etc., started forcing local law enforcement to do
    so by, say, forcing them to enforce federal immigration policy or to deny
    local services to undocumented individuals, it could lead to a precedence
    which would allow the federal government to force local governments to do
    other things technically out of the realm of federal jurisdiction.

    I think a lot of people, liberal and conservative, don't really think about what allowing the federal government to do "in this one instance" could lead
    to in many others.

    So, I guess the answer is 0, and all the gun nuts were lied to, in summation, right?

    The method used in the past to get around this is to threaten to withold federal funds.

    Back in the 70's, the feds said "You don't HAVE to set your state speed limits to 55 MPH and make the drinking age 21. However, if you fail to do so, you will not receive any federal highway funds."

    On the suject of highways, why is my driver's license good in all 50 states so I can freely excercise the priveledge of driving, but my Concealed Carry permit doesn't allow me to excercise a constitutional right in all 50 states?

    For that matter, why is it that an 18 year old has to sign up for Selective Service, can vote, serve his country, get shot at in some foreign sandpit, etc., but can NOT sit down in a bar and have a beer?

    Exception used to be active duty while on base...18 for beer/wine and 21 for the hard stuff. The good old days, when the rough, tough, (and plastered) marines right out of boot would tell this "SquidBoy" that I wasn't big enough to remove them from the EM club.

    Didn't he get ticketed for "drunk in pub-lick" ? Tells the cop, but I don't want to be drunk in public, I want to be drunk in the bar. I was drunk in the bar, and they threw me into public. arrest them.

    The method used in the past to get around this is to threaten to
    withold federal funds.

    Having worked for local government, I am familiar with that. "Make your systems do this or that or we will withhold federal $$$/certification/etc."

    On the suject of highways, why is my driver's license good in all 50 states so I can freely excercise the priveledge of driving, but my Concealed Carry permit doesn't allow me to excercise a constitutional right in all 50 states?

    That is a good question. I assume it is because each state has agreed to
    allow this to be so, in the case of the DL, or has not agreed to allow it to
    be so, in the case of concealed carry. Actually, haven't some states talked about allowing concealed carry from other states?

    Also, did you know that there is some "federal ID" program that, if I understand correctly, would either replace your state-issued DL or would be issued by your state as your DL? My state is not a part of the program yet, but I think it is another case of getting a temp waiver so that federal $$$
    are not withheld. In some ways, they sound like they also can act as a passport. I already have one of those, and a state-issued ID, so why would I need another, more expensive one?

    For that matter, why is it that an 18 year old has to sign up for Selective Service, can vote, serve his country, get shot at in some foreign sandpit, etc., but can NOT sit down in a bar and have a beer?

    Someone told me that, back in the day, wherever state they grew up in had a drinking age of 18 and a driver's age of 21. I never have understood why I
    had to sign up at 18 but could not do certain other things until 21, either, but at least I could also vote at that point.

    There are some state with reciprocity agreements. My permit is valid in Idaho, for instance.

    At this time, different states have different laws. Washington is a "shall issue" state with pre-emption laws. This simply means that the local LEO office is REQUIRED by law to issue a permit as long as I can pass the background check and have no other issues which would disqualify me.
    Preemption laws prevent a county or city from passing a law which prevents me from excercising my right to carry a concealed weapon under state law.

    Oregon, on the other hand, requires you to justify in writing to your local sherriff the reasons why he should issue you a permit. "Because it is my constitutional right" or "self-defense" are NOT valid reasons. Oregon does not have a preemption statute on the books, so you need to be careful where you carry. For instance, the permit makes you legal to carry concealed in Oregon...right up to the point where you cross the city limites into Portland, where it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon even with a permit issued by the state.

    It is illegal to possess a loaded handgun in a motor vehicle in the state of WA without a valid CCL. It is, however, legal in Oregon as long as it is plain view.

    Both WA and OR allow open carry, so that is always an option. Unfortunately, there have been enough instances of idiots being idiots that this draws excessive attention in larger cities.

    Here in SE Washington, it is not really unusual to see a person with a holstered pistol while grocery shopping. It is even more common to see a weapon "print" under a jacket or shirt. On the plus side, the average citizen doesn't know what they are looking at if they even notice at all.

    If I go on a road trip/vacation, I simply plan for a destination in WA or ID.
    I really try to avoid traveling to OR unless my employer dispatches me there.

    Dont know what the laws are in CA. Left there in Aug of 1990, and cant think of anything which would force me to return.

    from what i've been told, the reasoning behind this is that kids hang out with older kids.


    so the 18 year olds will still get it from the 21 year olds, but if they could buy it at 18, the 16 year olds would have more access.

    that was probably the thinking back then.

    The worst I can say was the "registration" during that "S.A.F.E." in
    NYS. Of course anyone IMHO that registers their firarms, DON'T DESERVE
    TO HAVE THEM.


    The only registration of weapons in NYS are those that are to be
    grandfathered in, and are now restricted from sales in the state.

    I own 3 guns right now. None are registered. In fact, I bought one of them a couple of months ago. Took me a total of under an hour to buy. I did it
    over lunch.

    The stories of guns being impossible to get in NYS are very exaggerated.

    I lived in CA for 11 years. Most of them I lived in Amador County (NorCal). They were pretty pro-gun in that County. Didn't have an issue getting a CA CHL there. As for the rest of the State? It's pretty Nazi-ish.

    i hear they just passed a law that in order to buy ammo you hve to complete the FFL 4473. What a an effing joke.

    Are they trying to crash the NICS process?

    No gun should be registered. Scre that shit.

    I know you could get a gun in NYS with little fuss. You're right, the news (fake news?) made it look like if you lived in NY, you're pretty SOL.

    More scare tactics. As long as you pass the 4473, you should be sold a gun. NICS has already done it's due process, there nothing more that needs to be done, except the actual transfer at that point.
