Today, the House of Representatives passed their version of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill. Of course, anti-gunners were quick to take to Twitter to cry about the passage. What they had to say was nothing short of stupid…and at sometimes, funny.
The new concealed weapons bill is going to foster more horrendous shootings. It's like eating 2 big macs, 2 fish sandwiches and a chocolate malt everyday and wondering why you have a massive size ass.#NRA #ConcealedCarryReciprocityAct

Uhhh….I don’t think that’s how that works.
Don’t worry, everyone. The House is about to pass a bill which allows gun owners from states allowing concealed carry to legally have concealed guns in states that DON’T allow it. Hey GOP, tell me more about Federal overreach and states rights. #HR38 #ConcealedCarryReciprocityAct

Hey Jon. Maybe you need a lesson on the Constitution here. The Second Amendment is a God-given Constitutional right. In theory, there should be no laws that infringe upon that right. But guess what? They’re there. And now Congress has a duty to make sure the laws are applied fairly across all states. You know why? Because your right to bear arms doesn’t stop at a state line.
In light of the House passing today’s gun bill, a friendly reminder that the NRA is a terrorist organization.

Can celebrities please come up with something different to compare the NRA to? Seriously. If you want to call any organization a terrorist organization, maybe take a look at, oh, I don’t know…Antifa?

Don’t you find it interesting that people like Gabby Giffords, who are legal gun owners, speak out against the very same objects that protect them? Really makes you go ‘hmmm.’
— Nancy Stein (@nancyleeanne) December 6, 2017
Actually, Nancy, what the House of Representatives did is a HUGE win for single women and women who have been victims of domestic violence. You know why? Because now they don’t have to wait months to get a permit that allows them to protect themselves from their abuser.
#maga? How does this jive with all the prayers and sorrow expressed after Las Vegas? It was “too soon” to talk about it then. Not to soon to enhance concealed carry now??? #GOPlies #GunControl #gunsense https://t.co/KJisTorjKj

LOLOLOL! Actually…the power is with the people. And the majority of Americans are law-abiding gun owners. WE wanted this legislation and our leaders are finally listening to us. Amazing how that works, right?
I can’t think of too many things more dangerous than this concealed carry gun reciprocity measure. I’ve had gun held to my head in mugging. How does the NRA get away with this! Oh yeah, they own @GOP. #socynical #gunsense
— Caron Golden (@carondg) December 6, 2017
I’m sorry you had a gun held to your head. What makes you think that those who follow the law will be just like your mugger? You do realize criminals don’t obtain guns the legal way, right?

These wife-beating idiots already carried firearms. Now good guys can carry guns too.
For years, we have been calling on Congress to take action on gun violence. Perhaps I should have been clearer. We want Congress to take action to PREVENT gun violence. Not make it worse with dangerous reciprocity that sets the bar at the lowest standard.
— Jim Himes (@jahimes) December 7, 2017
Let me get this straight…allowing law-abiding citizens who have a concealed carry permit in one state to carry in another state suddenly perpetuates gun violence? Where the hell does your logic — or lack thereof — come from? Those who follow the law are the people who went through a background check, passed and passed a CCW test. They have no criminal background, meaning they’re far less likely to commit a heinous act than a criminal.
Our parents are trying to kill us. When is Child Protective Services going to pick us up? https://t.co/zf2MsEPN7q

Out of all of the idiotic celebrity tweets regarding concealed carry reciprocity, this is probably up there as one of the dumbest.
What do you suggest, Ms. Bateman? Are you wanting every person who owns guns to not have kids or have their children taken away from them by CPS? I love how anti-gunners want us to choose between our kids and our guns but we don’t have to choose between having free speech or kids. We don’t have to choose between following a certain religion or having children. Apparently, the Second Amendment is the only Constitutional right that needs to be restrained. Right, gun grabbers?
Fuck. This. Insane. Shit. https://t.co/xDJapa5zlS

Get off your high horse, Maggie.
Concealed-Carry Reciprocity would let out-of-state people convicted of violent misdemeanors carry hidden, loaded weapons in New York.
That’s pure insanity. Only the NRA could propose something so vile. https://t.co/FN7S8xIPew
— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) December 6, 2017
Oh, Governor. How uneducated you truly are. It’s quite sad, really.
Let’s break this down for you, shall we?
Say a guy with a violent misdemeanor from New Jersey picks up a gun on the black market (shocking, I know) and puts it in his pants. He then drives over the Jersey Turnpike and into New York. He just broke the law because A) he’s a criminal and shouldn’t have a gun, B) is transporting a gun across state lines, which is also illegal and C) HE’S ALREADY BREAKING THE LAW.
This bill doesn’t make what he’s doing legal. He’s still not allowed to possess a gun but remember, that’s what criminals do. For goodness sake, the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law. This bill allows people to freely carry across state lines. The people who weren’t breaking these laws are the GOOD GUYS with guns, not the bad guys. You know why? Because the good guys respect laws and follow them. Criminals do not.
Inviting violent criminals to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save lives
Inviting domestic abusers to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save lives
Inviting convicted stalkers to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save lives
— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) December 6, 2017
Nancy, you’re an idiot.
Do you even know what concealed carry books are on the law? Do you even know what goes into getting a concealed carry permit? Of course not. If it involves someone owning or possessing a gun, they’re automatically a crazy person.
Here. I’ll help educate you.
- Criminals don’t get to legally conceal carry a firearm. In order to legally conceal a firearm, you have to have a concealed carry permit or live in a state that does not require permitting. The bill your colleagues passed forces states to recognize other states permits.
- Again. This is a legal process. If someone is a criminal, they won’t pass a background check, which is part of the requirement behind obtaining a CCW permit.
- See points one and two.
Hopefully that clears up some of the confusion for you, Nancy. I know you’ve been in Congress awhile so you might have forgotten how the law actually works for us average folk.
It’s horrifying that @HouseGOP just passed legislation that forces states to let violent offenders, domestic abusers & stalkers carry hidden, loaded handguns.
— Rep. Betty McCollum (@BettyMcCollum04) December 6, 2017
Hey Betty, take a look at the valuable information above. You and Nancy should gather up your Democratic colleagues so we can accurately educate ya’ll on firearms legislation.
If you're keeping score, the Ignorant Basterds in Congress scored what they'd consider two victories, by missing the deadline to insure poor kids but making sure more people can carry guns. To make sure the kids are shot before they die without health care, no doubt.

Leave it to these lefties to make us all out to be the bad guy.
