My Gun Is Empty; Don’t Make Me Pull the Trigger

Following the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise at the hands of a deranged liberal terrorist, Rep. Thomas Massie introduced a bill for national reciprocity. This bill would make it so concealed carry license would be treated like marriage licenses or drivers licenses; a permit in one state would be recognized in every other state.

The bill, however, has stalled, and Massie points the finger for this squarely at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. – Bearing Arms

Second Amendment rights, long considered the Republicans purview, are being kicked down the road by Paul Ryan. As Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit wondered outloud: WAIT, PAUL RYAN IS BLOCKING CONCEALED CARRY RECIPROCITY? So what, exactly, is he good for?

ryan-unhappyYeah, we give up too.

One is tempted to say the only thing he’s good for at this point is to do the Democrats’ bidding.

Speaker Paul Ryan will not allow Congressional action on national concealed carry reciprocity to move bills forward, Rep. Thomas Massie told host Mark Walters Thursday on Armed American Radio.  The reason given is Ryan thinks the timing isn’t right to consider H.R. 2909, the D.C. Personal Protection Reciprocity Act, a supplement to state reciprocity provisions of H.R. 38.

Paul-RyanYou’ve been outed as a beard

I assume that the only time Mr. Ryan would consider the timing “right” would be after the Republicans lose the House and Senate in the Midterms. Then he can once again complain that the Democrats are blocking its passage.

To quote General Kelley, although he was referring to a different Democrat  at the time, “as my blessed mother used to say ‘empty barrels make the most noise.’”

Remember Eric Cantor? He was another empty barrel who made a lot of noise until the door hit him on the way out.
