    This is the only thing I have heard about in Alabama

    Pretty pro-gun if you ask me. Also Alabama residents if you haven't already write to you senator and express your support.

    Im in NH and have not heard anything about any bills for the residents of the state, but they just passed a bill where the state legislators can not carry in the state house. I have noticed a huge shift to the democratic party within the state considering there is only 1 republican Ayotte in the senate. With is being in the New England states I hope we stand by our state creed Live Free or Die! But lots of liberals up from MA now and spreading that into the state. Of the responses I get back from the emails I sent which I jave received 4 ,3 of the 4 support the mag limits and universal checks the only one who was not in support was Ayotte, I fear we will see something at the state level soon.

    •Governor's office: Republican Gov. Rick Scott has called on schools to reassess safety measures.
    •Legislature: A bill from the House minority Democratic party would allow local governments to ban possession of concealed weapons at specific events held at government buildings or o public locations. On the majority Republican side, Senate President Pro Tempore Garrett Richter said "it's too soon" to say whether significant gun legislation wil happen in the session beginning mid-March

    Wisconsin's safe. Governor's office plus both chambers controlled by Repubs, nothing's happening here.

    Define "considering". If an Ohio Democrat introduces an anti-gun bill that will never make it out of committee for a floor vote, is Ohio "considering" anti-gun legislation?

    As a matter of fact, one Democrat last week introduced one bill mandating gun storage (House Bill 31). I predict that bill will never make it out of committee.

    The Ohio Democratic Party said a few weeks ago that they would introduce some anti-gun bills, but nothing has been introduced other than the one mentioned above.

    Washington is hit-or-miss. We've got bills going forward on both sides.

    Nothing that's gaining any traction in Ohio. There have been some bills introduced, but they won't survive Congress.

    I don't really see any 'anti gun' measures passing anytime soon in The Gunshine State.

    When I spoke to my local rep recently, he pretty much said 'don't worry'.

    Some democrat from Orlando did put forward a bill on ammo taxes, but I have heard it ain't going anywhere.

    I wish they would actually buck the system and put forward some pro gun legislation, but I think they are just all keeping a low profile and letting the battle happen at the fed level for now.

    There are no anti-gun bills before the Kansas legislature that I am aware of. There is, however, a pro-gun initiative that will likely pass. It has to do with recognizing CC permits held by non-residents. We have a conservative pro-gun legislature and governor. The level of gun freedom in Kansas is good and getting better. Republicans and conservatives hold strong majorities in most parts of the state and most are pro-gun and pro 2nd Amendment.

    And, considering our governor signed a "pro gun" bill into law the week following Friday 12/14; (That took some guts)
    I believe we're in much better shape than we would've been a few years ago, and in far better shape than a lot of other states.
    We still do have dear old Sherrod though.

    It's because of these liberal cities that we are having this discussion.

    Take NYC out of NY state and the state goes Red. Same for Boston, obamaville, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St Paul and so on.

    Liberal mecca's dictate the legislation of the entire state.

    Already stated, Alabama. To further the info, there was a state level conference on school security with some legislatures, LEOs, and school types. It was specifically stated additional gun control was NOT on the table.

    An aside, there was an incident locally where a CCW permit holder left his pistol in a school. One of the state reps went nuclear over it and began to draft legislation prohibiting carry at schools (again, this is a past issue). He was contacted by a large number of folks, actually listened to them and dropped the bill. He seemed pretty adamant about getting something passed before he heard from law abiding gun owners and really came around on the issue. I was very impressed with him.

    Nothing in Arizona. I love living I a state that allows me to carry in any way, shape, or form, without the need for a CWP. Castle doctrin alive and well, can carry into banks, church and any where we want with very few exceptions.
    Although we still need to fix a couple of issues regarding "gun free zones" our law makers are working on the issue, and doing everything to defeat any imposing gun laws.

    NC has introduced a few house and senate bills.

    Allowing restaurant carry, armed security guards in schools, armed employees in schools (training obviously required), the right to leave the firearm in the locked vehicle, where carry is prohibited. I'm sure I'm forgetting something... OH, required confidentiality of PPP and CHP holders.

    All good things. Most have just been introduced, some have been through the first reading. I'm excited, I think these all have a strong chance at passing.

    Nothing along those lines in Indiana. Democrats and Republicans alike are pro-gun in Indiana politics. The mayor of Indianapolis, the former governor, and the new governor are very pro-2ndA. Our new democratic senator has even come out, in washington, against an AWB...but that's national.

    The only pocket of pro gun control politicians are...here's a shock...in Gary which is a suburb of Chicago.

    Those are the GOOD ones. :D

    I'm not concerned about those.

    After all this topic is about gun controls and those are laws are gun freedoms.




    I am concerned about...


    They want to make changes in PA. :cuss:

    SB 435 - Memo: Assault Weapons Ban Bans firearms with certain cosmetic features that make them look scary. No grandfathering. Possession of scary-looking firearms after the effective date is an M1 the first time (read: lifetime prohibitor of firearms possession) and F3 each subsequent time.

    HB239 "All firearms...shall be registered...." Photos, SSN, and fingerprints required with annual renewal fees!

    SB192 An Act amending Titles 18 (Crimes and Offenses) and 53 (Municipalities Generally) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, providing for a limit on handgun purchases and sales in cities of the first class; establishing the Violence Prevention Fund; and further providing for limitation on the regulation of firearms and ammunition and for limitation on municipal powers.

    SB191 An Act amending Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, providing for a limit on handgun purchases and sales and establishing the Violence Prevention Fund.

    SB190 This bill would allow judges, the Pennsylvania State Police, mental health review officers, and county mental health administrators to share all documents concerning mental health treatment with the FBI.

    HB122 An Act amending the act of March 10, 1949 (P.L.30, No.14), known as the Public School Code of 1949, providing for trained school personnel.

    SB189 An Act amending Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, prohibiting persons ordered to undergo involuntary mental health treatment on an outpatient basis from owning firearms.

    House Bill 335 This bill would add a mental health question relating to if someone has "ever been treated".





    AND they might actually be able to make a lot of changes here in PA since gun the owners here live under rocks lol and don't realize what is happening in Harrisburg until it is too late. :D

    Of course, Paul Ryan kind of turned on us a little, talking about 'compromise' on the whole universal BC thing, but you're right- nothing at a state level. The rally in Madison on the 19th showed pretty well what the climate was... :D

    WEST VIRGINIA of all states with high gun ownership has been sold down the river by both senators & governor that I know about. One house member answered with a six of one, half a dozen of the other so who knows about him.
    Guess I will be working in the next elections IF we have a choice.

    He signed two, vetoed 1 that day. We did get a simplified, streamlined permitting and registration process.

    Michigan is doing okay. We did get some decent pro-gun legislation passed, and still might have some hope for CPL reform to CC in PFZ's.

    But, we still have handgun registration and pistol purchase permits. And we still have an OC hating RINO Governor, who despite having financed his own campaign in order to not be pressured by special interests, still caves to special interests.

    I think for awhile, gun laws in Michigan will remain fairly stable.

    I just got this letter today..

    Dear Mr. Craven III:



    Thank you for contacting me regarding recent proposals for gun control. It is good to hear from you, and I appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns.

    The recent tragedies in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut were indeed horrifying. We all agree that we need to protect our children, but we need to take a reasonable approach and not react in a way that damages the constitutional rights of law abiding citizens. We must look at the facts and make well thought out decisions.


    Guns did not perpetrate these crimes, evil people did. There are certainly many things we can do to prevent these events from happening in the future, but restricting gun ownership for those who use them responsibly is not one. We need to look at a number of factors, including mental health and overall school security.

    Additionally, the 2nd district of North Carolina is overwhelmingly against additional regulation. In fact, a poll taken during my recent tele-townhall showed that over 65% of my constituents are against any further laws restricting guns, magazines, or ammunition.


    As a woman and a mother, I object to anyone telling me which tools I may use to protect myself and my family. Please know that I will continue to protect the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens, which are the foundation of our republic.



    Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me on this matter. I look forward to communicating with you in the future as I serve the people of the Second District of North Carolina. If you would be interested in receiving my e-newsletter, or for other information, please visit my website at www.ellmers.house.gov to sign up or contact me.





    Sincerely,



    Renee Ellmers
