BREAKING: House Passes Bill MANDATING Transfer of ALL US Army M1911 Handguns to the CMP

From The Firearms Blog:  http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2017/07/18/breaking-house-passes-bill-mandating-transfer-us-army-m1911-handguns-cmp/

July 18, 2017

The United States House of Representatives has just passed their version of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and included within it is a provision that will mandate the release of all M1911 handguns currently in US Army inventory to the Civilian Marksmanship Program, for distribution to eligible US civilians. The new bill would overwrite the 2016 NDAA, which allowed for the release of 10,000 of the pistols, but did not mandate it. The text of Section 1064 of the 2018 NDAA is as follows:

SEC. 1064. TRANSFER OF SURPLUS FIREARMS TO CORPORATION FOR THE PROMOTION OF RIFLE PRACTICE AND FIREARMS SAFETY.

(a) In General.—Section 40728(h) of title 36, United States Code, is amended—

(1) by striking “(1) Subject to paragraph (2), the Secretary may transfer” and inserting “The Secretary shall transfer”;

(2) by striking “The Secretary shall determine a reasonable schedule for the transfer of such surplus pistols.”; and

(3) by striking paragraph (2).

(b) Termination Of Pilot Program.—Section 1087 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 (Public Law 114–92; 129 Stat. 1012) is amended by striking subsections (b) and (c).

Although the 2016 NDAA allowed for the release of 10,000 M1911 handguns via a pilot program, its provisions did not mandate their transfer to the CMP, and the administration at the time reportedly blocked their release. The 2018 NDAA’s provisions would terminate the pilot program, and instead mandate the release of all surplus M1911 handguns to the CMP via the Secretary of the Army, striking paragraph 2 of section (h), which currently reads:

(2)

The Secretary may not transfer more than 10,000 surplus caliber .45 M1911/M1911A1 pistols to the corporation during any year and may only transfer such pistols as long as pistols described in paragraph (1) remain available for transfer.

If this bill passes the Senate – and right now, odds look quite good that it will be – then we could see the transfer of thousands of surplus M1911 handguns to the US civilian market via the CMP. Although these guns are likely to be well-worn, they still could have considerable value as collector’s pieces, inexpensive shooting irons, and workpieces for customization.

More details on the bill, and comments made by its sponser Rep. Rogers from Alabama, is available via an article at Guns.com.

Permitless Carry Revolution Continues In The States

Why do you need a permit to exercise a Constitutional Right?  It is a right, not a privilege.  If you need permission then it isn’t a right.  Try applying the idea you need a permit to speak or worship according to your beliefs.  People would call bullshit immediately.

Freedom is something we are born with and we have to treasure it and protect it, not let it be taken away from us by politicians playing word games.

From America’s 1st Freedom: https://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2017/7/14/permitless-carry-revolution-continues-in-the-states/

To call the wave of permitless carry legislation sweeping our nation a “revolution” may sound hyperbolic at first blush, but it is accurate. After all, there were only six states that recognized permitless carry on Jan. 1, 2016. There are now 12.

Those 12 states are Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming and West Virginia. Additionally, Arkansas and Montana recognize permitless carry throughout the vast majority of their states.

Moreover, permitless carry is being considered in more states even as I type. Cleveland.com reports that Ohio lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow law-abiding “Ohioans age 21 and older to carry a concealed firearm without obtaining a concealed handgun license.” The bill is being sponsored by Republican Reps. Ron Hood and Tom Brinkman.

The permitless carry revolution blends the philosophical with the practical, reviving a full-throated Second Amendment for law-abiding Americans.

On the philosophical side, the permitless carry revolution forces legislators to ask why American citizens should be required to obtain a permit to exercise a God-given right? (The revolution surges to the forefront of legislatures that think along these lines.)

For example, after signing permitless carry legislation into law in North Dakota, Republican Gov. Doug Burgum stressed that abolishing the need for a carry permit meant state residents could exercise their Second Amendment rights because of the Constitution (rather than government permission). The Wells Fargo Pioneer quoted him as saying:

North Dakota has a rich heritage of hunting and a culture of deep respect for firearm safety. As a hunter and gun owner myself, I strongly support gun rights for law-abiding citizens. House Bill 1169 allows citizens to exercise their Second Amendment right under the U.S. Constitution.

And in New Hampshire—a state that adopted permitless carry in February of this year—Republican Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley explained that he did not understand why “a law-abiding citizen” who is “legally entitled to own a gun” would have to a get a permit in order to carry the gun he owns.
