Carrying a Gun Across State Lines

This from Fox News and John Lott after the House passed national reciprosity for concealed carry:

For decades, treating licenses for guns like those  for cars was something that gun control advocates wanted.

In his 2000 presidential campaign, Al  Gore promised: “We require a license to drive a car in this nation in order  to keep unsafe drivers off the road. As president, I will fight for a national  requirement that every state issue photo licenses [for handgun buyers]. We  should require a license to own a handgun so people who shouldn’t have them,  can’t get them.”

NRA Files Appeal of Ruling on Handgun Sales Age Limits

On Sept. 29, a federal judge in the Northern District of Texas decided in favor of the federal government in a case brought by the NRA challenging the federal restriction on the purchase of handguns by 18-20 year old adults. The case is far from over, as the NRA has already filed an appeal.
