National Right to Carry

According to Victor Beane, a Florida Gun Show promoter, John McCain would sign a national right to carry bill if he was elected president.

It’s interesting in that same quote that Mr. Beane says that McCain considers the gun show loophole issue to be a dead issue; the problem is that he doesn’t elaborate on that.  Does he think it’s a dead issue because he’d sign BS legislation to “close” the imaginary loophole, does he think it’s a dead issue because it’s entirely imaginary?  To me, and to gun owners, that’s a pretty important distinction.

Right now, McCain, much as it galls me to say this, will probably get my vote in the Indiana primary.  I don’t know about Mitt Romney, I just can’t bring myself to vote for a guy that gives me the creeps when he talks.

  1. As someone from MA all I can say is I like Mitt better because he is no more of a gun grabber than McCain, but I think he is better at the business end, will fight to close the borders, and I have yet to hear of him fighting against free speech like McCaine Fingold did. . .. just my $0.02

  2. According to Mccain’s website:
    “At a time when some were trying to shut down gun shows in the name of fighting crime, John McCain tried to preserve gun shows by standardizing sales procedures. Federal law requires licensed firearm sellers at gun shows to do an instant criminal background check on purchasers while private firearm sellers at gun shows do not have to conduct such a check. John McCain introduced legislation that would require an instant criminal background check for all sales at gun shows and believes that such checks must be conducted quickly to ensure that unnecessary delays do not effectively block transactions.”

    So thats the answer. He wants to “close” the “loophole”.
