Gun Laws

The Hearing Protection Act has been included in the SHARE act and has been voted out of committee. Dems are attempting to block by demanding further committee hearings although this is rated as unlikely to happen.

HR 38, the CCW recip act has 212 co-sponsors which speaker Ryan doesn't think is enough so he's not bringing it to the floor for a vote. I didn't realize that Ryan was an anti-gunner.

Text of the bill is here.

Couple of notes on HR38:
You may carry your carry gun wherever you go as all states right now have statutes allowing for concealed carry. Some just don't issue the permits (may issue).

“(2) The term ‘handgun’ includes any magazine for use in a handgun and any ammunition loaded into the handgun or its magazine.

So this gets around New Yawks SAFE act and NJ's hollow point ban. Good. Don't expect many votes from the Dems from there.

UPDATE: Revised to reflect more careful reading of the bill text. Thanks to Richard for pointing this out.
