    Someone was asking who voted yea and nay for this in the other closed thread.

    Sorry for the long list, I can't get it to format in multiple columns.

    Unreal! Lugar voted no. :fire::cuss:

    On the flip side I am surprised Bayh voted yes. I still can't believe Lugar said no. Lugar just seems to becoming more of a RINO every year. It may be time to consider someone else in my mind. I am generally for states rights, but as long as there is a F in ATF the states rights argument is moot.

    And according to reports, Senator Mark Pryor (D-Arkansas) initially voted No but changed his vote to yes after it became clear that the Nays didn't need his vote. Just something for you Arkansas folks to keep in mind. And I suspect that a few other Dems-in-red-states went likewise but voting later didn't need to actually flip - in other words, I wouldn't count on 58 Yea votes for something like this in the future.

    I'm glad this was voted down.

    This is not something they should have the authority to regulate in either direction.

    If your rep voted against this, claiming such powers belong to the states, write them and say, "You're exactly correct. I look forward to your support for the repeal of other federal gun control laws."

    I see this as little different from the FOPA. I live near a state line, and said state doesn't recognize out-of-state permits, but issues permits of its own to its own residents on a shall-issue basis. Some highways straddle the state line, and I would be a criminal for doing what I am licensed to do in Idaho, simply because the road crosses the state line on the way between two Idaho locations.

    I haven't heard a whole lot of oppostion to FOPA, even from the hard-core [strike]Dixie whistlers[/strike] "states' rights" advocates.

    Problem is they already have it, and there is little chance of turning that around in the near future.

    I agree that they shouldn't have the power, but that ship sailed many years ago.

    So, while we wait on the Supremes to rule on incorporation we live under the current rules. Wishing pro gun legislation would fail simply because of the states rights thing doesn't help us in the "right now." We got here with creeping incrementalism. Wishing it away all at once doesn't work.

    Which of course isn't why they voted no. The majority of the nay voters vote against everything gun freedom related whether it infringes on state rights or not.

    Exactly.

    As I wrote in another thread about this: there are only two kinds of laws, those that take away liberty and those that protect it. "States' rights" are a smokescreen, nothing else.
