There was a proposal in the Senate to allow people with concealed weapon permits to freely carry their arms into other states. Some politicians reacted with fantastic claims that show a lack of knowledge and honesty.
Article IV of the Federal Constitution states “Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each state to the Public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other state.” This means a driver’s license from one state is valid in another state. Is the Constitution still operative?
One Senator from NY brought up Vermont as an example of freedom. The World Almanac for 2008 lists the murder rate for Vermont as 1.9. The rate is 1.2 in South Dakota whose Senator introduced that proposal. Compare that to New York at 4.8 and New Jersey at 4.9. Do you know the rates in cities with Gun Prohibition?
