All the "Nays" logic on here goes against all common sense and shows their ignorance on this issue. For example, most say "we need universal background checks" & "there should be training requirements"... well just for your information, THERE ALREADY IS!! I have my enhanced Concealed Carry Permit and as a requirement had to go through extensive background checks and mandatory training and classes. You liberals just listen to the propaganda spewed by these left wing gun grabbers and don't actually research anything. I challenge you to go to a gun store and try to buy a gun with no background check preformed... you won't be successful because background checks are already required in all 50 states. Research the "gun show loophole" you hear about and educate yourself and you'll find you can't buy a gun at a gun show with no background check either. EDUCATE YOURSELF BEFORE YOU START SPEAKING AGAINST PEOPLES CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS! Lastly, as far as states having their right to govern themselves and enact their own laws, yes to a large extent that is true, but not when it comes to taking away or limiting the people's constitutional rights. For example, one state should be able to discriminate against race while another state is just because they're divided by a invisible boarder line. Same thing with our constitutional right to defend ourselves. By preventing good guys from legally carrying firearms, you're just giving more power to the criminals who won't follow the laws anyways... yeah, that's really smart!
