The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
Look at Florida:
Florida honors my South Dakota resident permit, but not my Utah non-resident permit. I had to do a lot more to get the Utah permit than the South Dakota Permit, so you would think that it would be the other way around and Florida would honor Utah but not South Dakota.
South Dakota charges $10, you fill out half a piece of paper worth of a form, and your permit is mailed to you within a week. There's no class, no fingerprinting, no nothing. That's it.
Utah charges $65, plus the class, the FBI fingerprinting, the passport photo, your permit arrives in the mail within 60-90 days, AND Utah runs your information through NICS every single day for the entire life of the permit! South Dakota doesn't do that, but Utah does, but Utah isn't good enough for Florida?
Same thing with Colorado, but even though I'm not good enough to get a permit from them, even though Utah's permit isn't good enough for Colorado, Colorado will still let me carry since I have a stupidly-easy-to-get South Dakota permit.
As a resident of South Dakota, it is easier for me to carry in Colorado than it is for an actual Colorado resident to carry in Colorado.
Where is the sanity in this nonsense?
I hope this gives some a taste of why I support a single Federal permit to carry with national reciprocity. One standard, one rule for everyone.

I don't believe in gun control laws of any kind but not because of the 2nd, which I interpret differently than many people.
