rebuttals to "Gun Control"
What if I told you that the Utah House is advancing a so-called "constitutional carry" bill that won't allow citizens to carry a loaded gun. You'd call that nuts, right?
Sadly, that's exactly what we're seeing with House Bill 112, which should be mocked as the "Israeli Constitutional Carry" bill, because it does not allow citizens to carry a firearm with a round in the chamber.
Utah's current open carry statute is bizarre. It requires "two actions" to fire an open carried gun. For a semi-automatic pistol, that means you can have a loaded magazine, but must carry on an empty chamber so that you have to cycle it (action one) before you can pull the trigger (action two). For double-action revolvers, the requirement is even more bizarre. You have to have the hammer resting on an empty chamber (otherwise it is "loaded," even though that isn't the round that will be fired), and the next chamber has to be empty as well. You have to pull the trigger twice (two actions) and you're down two rounds.
House Bill 112 fails to rectify this absurdity of Utah-specific law ... .......
