If passed, these bills would require states to recognize carry and concealed carry permits from people who acquired their permit over state lines.
Feinstein argues that these “dangerous bills” would put states’ rights in jeopardy, and she adds that most law enforcement agencies oppose the legislation. Her rationalization is that the bill endangers victims of domestic abuse, because abusive boyfriends could cross state lines, acquire a gun, and then return to confront the woman.
We are curious to see how long her pro-state mentality lasts once other bills reach the Democratic senator’s desk, or if she is temporarily borrowing a political ideology typically reserved for her Republicans rivals.
The NRA is working diligently to oppose her. They are attempting to amass 60 votes, the required number of votes to end a filibuster.
Look on the bright side: if Feinstein successfully filibusters the bill, we can rest assured that no woman will ever suffer at the hands of her boyfriend again. Not ever. Restricting carry permits to individual states will directly impact spousal abuse. Makes sense to us.
