    This is a limitation placed on our government. They don't allow anything in these regards. They took a stinking oath to protect this right. Yet, we have allowed our government to violate their very oath to protect our liberties by demanding we ask them permission to keep and bear our firearms. Now we pay the consequences for it.

    You get the government you deserve.
    I actually agree with you. I fell to using that same terminology. You're right.

    And here's another annoying thing about rights: Liberals run around defending free speech, no matter how irresponsible it may be (e.g. Trump as portrayed as Julius Caesar getting stabbed to death); yet demand we all be accountable to the government to keep us as responsible gun owners. Not one right is more unalienable than any other. And they all require to be exercising in a responsible manner.

    I heard the congressman talking about this over the weekend. According to what he said his proposal isn't just for congress critters and their staffs but reciprocity for all citizens with CCW permits to be allowed to conceal carry in DC. Still waiting for the text of his bill to surface to actually read it, but, on face value, it isn't what is being reported.

    You gotta wonder why just reciprocity with just DC?
    Why not Constitutional Carry....

    Because it's easier to get Congress to approve a limitation on D.C. authority than it is for the entire nation.
    If diversity were such a strength, why do blacks preach “solidarity”?

    Nope, no wondering for me. Reciprocity has been left to the states to decide, right or wrong, that is our current status. Congress has legislative authority over DC and they are moving them towards a better 2A environment.

    Here's a fun fact..
    Forty-five states allow open carry of firearms." Groups both for and against stricter gun laws told us there are five states that have laws banning open carry for handguns: California, Florida, Illinois, New York and South Carolina.

    Why isn't Maryland included in the States that ban open carry.
