Freedom Loving Places

“Make sure the enemies of freedom know the power of freedom.”

That stirring line is from a video released by The National Rifle Association (NRA) in support of the National Right To Carry Law, legislation that is currently being considered by the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations.

The legislation seeks to amend “the federal criminal code to authorize a person who is carrying a valid, government-issued identification document containing that person’s photograph and a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm in one state, and who is not prohibited from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm under federal law, to possess or carry a concealed handgun (other than a machine gun or destructive device) in another state in accordance with the restrictions of that state.”

In short, those who are allowed to carry will be allowed to carry in any other state should the legislation pass.

The NRA, the nation’s most strident and dedicated protectors of the 2nd Amendment, believe that the right to arm oneself is a constitutional guarantee that protects the citizenry from an intrusive and tyrannical government. As ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp said recently in an interview with Glenn Beck, “In freedom loving places, there are always firearms available for good purposes.”
