As with ANY - and I mean ANY - "gun law" the only people who are going to follow them are law abiding citizens. Criminals don't follow gun laws or any laws for that matter (Hmmm? Maybe that is why they're called criminals?). Years ago after an attempt on his life, President Ronald Reagan said it best when asked about gun control. “You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There’s only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time… It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience.”
~Ronald Reagan

As regards Microstamping...the law abiding gun owner who purchases one of these weapons and stores it in his home, then suffers a burglary, is now the criminal when that firearm is used by the burglar or whoever he sells the firearm to. Oh never mind, the law abiding citizen will report the gun as stolen so should be on record with law enforcement if weapon is used to commit a crime.

However, the funky civil laws (where criminal can sue to collect damages for cutting self on the glass from the window he broke getting into his place of burglary or other stupid bs stuff) might still leave the "owner" vulnerable to bogus liability from use of stolen property by another individual.

Vermont, considered a "liberal state" has some of the most lenient gun laws. for example, you can carry a concealed handgun, but do not need a permit. Vermont has a long tradition of hunting, and the right to safely keep firearms. I am also a "gun toting liberal." If you like weekends, and child labor laws, thank a liberal.

You are aware that the gun control act of 1934 was enacted because the government feared the veterans that knew how to use full automatic weapons, not the criminal element.

micro stamping is about as stupid as it comes!!! how many rounds will it take for the stamping to wear off??? how about taking a file and hitting it with about 6 licks and knocking it off??? wouldn't take much believe me, just a couple of microns and it would do no good at all because there would be plenty of pin to hit and set off the round but not enough to stamp!

The ONLY thing I find truly amazing (translation-REALLY STUPID!!) is that people like me gave up a part of our lives, or in some cases ALL of their lives, so we can have some CLUELESS IDIOTS tell us we don't have the 'right' to protect ourselves, because they 'know better than we do what we need'!! If you don't WANT a firearm in your house, DON'T HAVE ONE, but LEAVE us LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS who DO want one ALONE!!!! Just remember a favorite quote of mine-"When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns!!"

I'm a so-called "liberal" democrat who happens to love hunting and sport shooting. I own several guns including my AR-15 which is my baby. I understand that most republicans or conservatives lump us all into the "nutcase anti-gun" crowd but I can assure you this is not the case for myself or many other democrats and the name calling does nothing but create animosity between people of different political affiliations but share a belief in the right to bear arms and should be working together.

As for MICROSTAMPING, sneak into your local Law Enforcement firing range and pick up a coffee can full of brass and drop it around town or across country.

Lot of mistakes in this article, you can use imported parts on semi-auto rifles, up to ten, under 922(r). Clark county allows 30 days for handguns to be registered. Lot of comments about Illinois - various States make it impossible to get a permit, such as HI.

JCalvin:

Most states issue RESIDENT Concealed Firearm Permits to their residents for a fee. This allows the holder to carry a concealed firearm (with certain restrictions) within that state. Some states have agreements with other states where each state honors the other states permits. This is called reciprocity.

In addition some states such as Florida issue NONRESIDENT Concealed Firearm Permits to qualified persons who are not residents of the issuing state. The advantage of this is that there may be states that have reciprocity with the non resident permit issuing state that your resident state permit does not. Take a look at http://www.handgunlaw.us/

Illinois is the only Nanny State left that prohibits concelaed carry. Gov. Walker is signing a concealed carry bill in Wisconsin.

I can't quite get a handle on all these "concealed carry" permits. I have one in my own state but if I go out of state it isn't any good. Now I understand I can get a federal permit that carries over into other states but I still have to have a permit in my own state. I've been told this only applies to active or retired law enforcement officers. I'm confused! Anybody know what's going on with this?

If the clowns in congress would worry about cutting government waste , protecting our boarders, and terrorists instead of trying to destroy the 2nd amendment the country would be better off. It doesn't matter if they are (R) or (D) most of them are not honest and should be voted out. The country needs to get back to the things the founding fathers built it on.

This is why I never associate with Democrats. As a rule, Democrats are anti-gun, thereby anti-freedom. A supposed pro gun Democrat is antithema. . . the friend of my enemy, is my enemy.

We have idiots in Congress passing laws restricting rights in direct violation of the Constitution. There is another thing that bothers me almost as much. If I remember my Constitution correctly, it says that any license issued bu one State Shall be recognized by all the other States. This is why your driver's license is good all over the US. Ditto your marriage license, unless you are a "same-sex" couple, in which case in my opinion you are not MARRIED, just playing immoral house. My point is, if you have a license (or permit) from one State it should be valid from sea to shining sea.

The funny thing in Utah is that it is legal to carry a gun on campus, but if officers can either see the outline of the gun, or see it (shirt accidentally tucks in behind gun). They will try to confiscate your firearm and arrest you for disturbing the peace, and a bunch of other BS charges.
