It may be time to revisit and, if necessary, fine-tune Manchin-Toomey. Buyers with recently issued concealed carry permits would be exempted from background checks, as would transfers by gift or bequest, in-person sales outside gun shows, and buyers responding to unpublished (e.g., bulletin-board) notices. More importantly, interstate handgun purchases from dealers would be legalized, added safeguards would be implemented against a federal registry, the time required to complete a background check would be significantly reduced, and interstate transport rules would be liberalized. Those are consequential benefits.
My only idea after this article and the two idiots running for President & VP is that the Libertarian party Is officially desperate to get in power and are willing to sacrifice their once closely held beliefs for a share of the D.C. pie.
I think no party is going to come unscathed from this election. But seeing the Cato Institute whoring themselves like that is amazingly disappointing.
