Longtime shooting enthusiast and gun rights activist Bob Owens has outlined a list of five gun law reforms President-elect Donald Trump could implement the moment he steps into the White House early next year.
#1: Firearms On Duty
Trump will have the “authority to pass an executive order allowing the United States military to carry firearms (while) on duty” on domestic military bases and facilities, Owens wrote for his popular blog Bearing Arms.
Such locations have suffered an unacceptable number of terror attacks during the presidency of Barack Obama, and this needs to stop.
#2: Concealed Carry Reciprocity
The president-elect could establish “national concealed carry reciprocity in all 50 states,” meaning someone with a concealed carry license from one state could continue carrying a concealed weapon in another state.
“President Trump, working with a Republican-controlled House and Senate, should be able to get this passed into law within the first 90 days,” Owens noted.
#3: Legalizing Silencers
According to Owens, the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt made it a criminal act for Americans to attach a silencer to a firearm.
Trump could undo this by passing the Hearing Protection Act, an already written and sponsored bill that would allow “high-volume shooters” to protect their hearing.
#4: Background Check Reform
The National Instant Criminal Background Check System needs to be updated to “close the gaping holes” and make it “more effective, ensuring better and more accurate updating of prohibited persons.”
“This will likely run in conjunction with mental health reform to both help people in crisis obtain the help they need, and ensure that fears of losing their Second Amendment rights won’t keep people from seeking help for a temporary but important mental health crisis,” Owens added.
#5: Approved Importation
Last but not certainly not least, President-elect Trump could allow for the importation of historically significant firearms — something that Owens claimed has been “stymied” by the Obama administration.
“The Collectible Firearms Protection Act will allow the re-importation of hundreds of thousands of M1 Garands, M1 Carbines and M1911 pistols,” he wrote.
These are five simple laws that Trump could easily pass within his first 100 or so days in office, though this list represents just the tip of the iceberg with regard to the great deal of good he could potentially accomplish while president.
