With the new congress, it seems that we have some new 2A bills that will be heard within the next few weeks. The reciprocity bill for CCW seems like a good thing, but as always, you have to check the fine print. I've heard some rumors of some states being able to fully disallow CCW in order to skirt the bill, but it remains to be seen and amended. I'll stay up to date on it.
In my state, they are looking at doing away with the CCW permit all together. I sure hope so. Nothing like permitting a right and turning it into a privilege.
The Affordable Care Act seems to be on it's final legs, but there is nothing to replace it with as of yet. Maybe we can look at cutting the 10 levels of oversight and governmental meddling to get those costs down. The same with Pharma.
I see that Trump has Hired one of my state's biggest political hacks, Dan Coats to head the DNI. What a joke. C'mon, don't let the establishment entrench itself.
Building a wall is totally unnecessary and costly. If you make the crime of entering the country bad enough to overcome the benefits of coming here illegally, problem solved. We have the national guard of several states that can take on the protection of our borders. The ROE needs to change, though. See a gun, pop em. Done deal, no more drug lords attempting to cross the border. Pretty easy to overcome situations with a little harshness and frugality. Illegals that have been here for more than 5 years and have kids here can stay. They will never get voting rights and cannot attain citizenship unless they leave and enter properly. They must also pay taxes for the 5 years they have been here and cannot get social security. The idea is to make following the law easier and more beneficial than breaking it. Those migrant workers wishing to work here need a low cost visa with positive identity checks. Farmers hiring illegal workers should be fined heavily.
