SHARE Act (including the HPA) Clears House Committee

The House Committee passed the SHARE Act on for full House consideration ... first step in a long hard journey.

Here's a question posed to me, if this thing by some miracle makes it through and Trump signs it what happens in states where gun control is so tight you can't right now own a suppressor? I can just see Jerry Brown and crew with their mag bans, threaded barrel rules, "approve firearms" list etc ... they will flip.

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    They will all of a sudden find their confederate roots and start spouting off about "states rights"

    :spittingcoffee: States rights ended in 1865 when we became an Imperial Republic. As long as the 9th Circus Court rules out there, they are pretty safe doing whatever they want regarding firearms, and so is Oregon and Washington. Trying to fight a stacked deck is a fool's errand.

    States rights are a bad thing?

    Yes it is what if someone like Hilda beast gets elected? Then will folks still be happy with federal law trumping states rights. I get it.it's a good thing but also very dangerous.

    The MAJOR stumbling block will be in the House of Representatives. Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, is a sworn enemy of the 2nd Amendment, and is already on record as opposing the whole thing. That fool is beginning to make McCain look like a staunch conservative.

    If I recall I said PR was a piece of when he took over. "Oh no, give him a chance! He is better than ______!"
    Be interesting to see if folks opinions have changed.
    Anyway I hope this passes, but hold my breath I will not.


    As far as a states rights issue, it's not. It's federal law NOW. Making it favorable on the side of freedom is more better. And if a state doesn't like suppressors, they can make a law preventing their ownership. Or make big hoops to jump through like some commie states have.

    Absolutely not. However, Democrats LOVE a strong, overbearing central Govt right up to the point that it runs counter to their statist desires. Then they will cry 'states rights' to try and keep their power.

    Unless a state passes a law legalizing marijuana. Then they think it's ok.

    There's a word for that.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    There's a whole string of words for that. Unfortunately, the autocensor would delete every single one of them! :rotflmao:
