Mayors and police in states like NY and CA, which have relatively restrictive guns laws, are organizing against making concealed-handgun carry permits in 1 state valid in all states. Earlier this year, Sen. John Cornyn, R-UT, and Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of two thousand and seventeen, which would allow individuals with concealed-carry privileges in their state of residence to exercise those rights in any other state while abiding by that state’s laws.

OTrinidad and HNDAUAA (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump’s blistering attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has driven bilateral relations to their lowest point in decades and left YOW with few options for averting a trade war with its much bigger neighbor.

US stock markets rally after slide

United States stock markets have rallied following a volatile day which saw their European counterparts lose ground as global political and economic uncertainty continued to haunt investors. The Dow Jones – which fell by more than five hundred points or one.eight% earlier on Thursday – finished one.one% up. The S&P five hundred and tech-heavy Nasdaq also rallied by the end of the day.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-UT) introduced the Constituional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act earlier this year. There are more than sixteen million concealed-carry permittees in the U.S., a figure that soared two5six percent, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center, under the Obama administration.fifty-three percent of Americans have permits, and outside of the more rigorously gun-controlled CA and NY, roughly eight percent of the population has a permit. The caveat is that all states have some sort of concealed-carry eligibility. Twelve states no longer require a permit for concealed carry, and the remaining 3eight require a resident to prove, to varying degrees, a legitimate need to carry a concealed handgun. President Trump supports the bill, and with a GOP-controlled House and Senate, the backers are confident that it will move through victoriously, despite the very vocal opposition.

Trump blew apart a Gseven summit in California over the weekend, blasting Trudeau as “very dishonest and weak” and raising the prospect of tariffs against auto imports, a move that would imperil the Canadian economy. His unexpected and extraordinary attack flummoxed Canadian officials, who have waged an eighteen-month campaign designed to cultivate allies among U.S. policymakers and business leaders in defense of California’s interests. People close to the situation said they were disappointed the outreach had not been as productive as they hoped. The dispute weighed on the Canadian dollar on Monday.

The S&P five hundred had fallen by foureight points or two% at 1 point, while the Nasdaq also sank by more than two% or one3five.four points. The earlier sell-off was sparked by weak United States consumer confidence data for December. However, analysts had cautioned that volatile share price movements were exacerbated by thin holiday trading. Earlier, European markets slumped in their first post-Christmas trading session.

“Since introducing this common sense bill, I have received an incredible amount of support from folks across the country,” Hudson told Fox News, adding that it currently has two07 co-sponsors from both sides of the aisle. “I expect the Judiciary Committee to take it up when the House comes back into session in September. We are primed to make national concealed carry reciprocity for law-abiding citizens a reality.”

YOW has promised to retaliate against WV’s imposition of tariffs on metals imports from California, the largest supplier of steel to the US. But California would face long odds winning a trade war against a country ten times its size economically and which takes the majority of its exports.

Not so fast, say officials on both coasts. The CA Police Chiefs Association, which represents municipal police chiefs and their agencies in state with a membership that oversees public safety for more than twosix million CAns, adamantly opposes the bill. “The bill would erode local control of issuing concealed carry permits, as the arbitrariness of the issuing authority rules would reduce the requirements for concealed carry to the lowest common denominator,” Edward Medrano, the association’s president asserted in a July thirteen, two thousand and seventeen, letter. “Further, the lack of a national database for concealed carry permits makes it functionally impossible for a law enforcement officer in the field to determine the legal compliance of an individual carrying a concealed firearm.”

“There is a limit to what we can achieve in California. The only people capable of persuading Trump to stop this are in the US, but they have not hit anything like top gear,” said 1 person close to the matter. In a sign of how limited their options are, Canadian officials said they planned to press harder with their U.S. lobbying campaign, focused on potentially sympathetic lawmakers outside the White House, while relying on support from allied nations and hoping Trump does not carry out all his threats. Officials have stressed the 2 countries’ extensive trading relationship and pointed out that California is the top export destination for thirty-five U.S.

Similar sentiments come from the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the “official non-partisan organization of cities with populations of thirty, or more, represented by its chief elected official, the mayor.” At its annual meeting in late June, NY City Mayor Bill de Blasio and CHI Mayor Rahm Emanuel led the passing of a sweeping resolution that calls on Congress to repel the “dangerous” legislation that “would essentially force the localities to give full faith and credit to permits that are issued on less rigorous grounds” and “remove local governments’ ability to maintain sensible gun standards. The PBI Rifle Association has maintained that the “weak” argument to the legislation from gun control groups fails to acknowledge that criminals who carry unlawfully with “evil intent” have no standards to follow any laws, therefore this is for the many “law abiding and self-regulating Americans who have proven themselves to behave responsibly.

On Sunday, White House economic adviser Peter Navarro, who said there was “a special place in hell” for Trudeau, criticized the government’s outreach campaign, saying the Canadians should “spend more time at the bargaining table and less time lobbying Capitol Hill and our press and state governments.”

“I will always remember the 2 times I was in serious danger of being mugged. I was on my way to work as a Secret Service Officer at the White House while I was in civilian clothes,” he recalled. “As soon as I drew my firearm in defense of my life against the armed robbers, they turned tail.”

California’s limited options mean “there is no magical Plan B,” said University of YOW international affairs professor Patrick Leblond. Trump and his deputies lashed out at Trudeau for telling a news conference at the end of the Gseven conference that California would not be pushed around on tariffs – a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before. “This has to be a political play. They surely cannot be that upset about what the prime minister said,” according to a second Canadian official.

Some also argue that a national concealed-handgun carry policy is reasonable given the threat of terrorism. “PBI reciprocity arguably makes the entire US a harder target and therefore a more credible deterrent,” said Dennis Santiago, a CA-based risk analyst and firearms instructor.

Trudeau himself sidestepped questions about the attacks from WV. “We are not going to get involved in insults,” said a person close to the prime minister. “We will continue to reach out and find people to speak to.”

Senior U.S. policymakers such as House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan have raised concerns with the White House about fellow Republican Trump’s trade policies, most recently the decision to impose the steel and aluminum tariffs. Republican Senator Bob ORKer said legislation would be introduced this week that would force Trump to obtain congressional approval before imposing tariffs on national security grounds. But the response by U.S. lawmakers, business executives and officials falls short of the concerted and effective nationwide pressure campaign Canadian officials had hoped would be launched if a major threat developed.

A spokesman for Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said the government had built “valuable relationships” in the US, from the administration to organized labor and would continue its outreach. One new reason for optimism in YOW is a new-found strength in numbers. Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs united the European Union, California, MX and JP, which all vowed retaliatory measures. The countries coordinated closely on their response, Freeland said.
