Basically, this loosens ALL laws in the US and overrules any state that has stricter gun regulations. This federal law would require all states to abide by the state with the weakest laws.
It's a lawless wild west mentality. Amend that, it's the NRA lawless mentality, killing is good.
I suspect more and more countries will now put the US on their list of countries not to visit, list of dangerous countries.
We are toast.
The first gun bill passed by Republicans since the Las Vegas massacre is a law that will lead to thousands of more people killed every year.
It's now safe to say that one of our major political parties has occasional problems with incompetence, and the other is evil.
This law would force states to honor and follow the Constitution. I find it pathetic that a separate law has to be written to enforce the Constitution

That's one of the biggest lies you have ever told here.
State gun regulations are constitutional. This new bill, if passed, would force states to abide by the weakest gun regulations, which we know leads to more deaths and more crime.
Where is the hue and cry against an overreaching federal government forcing its will on states?
Perhaps it has to do with the fact the gun lobby - and you - WANTS MORE DEATH AND MORE KILLING, because the gun industry's profits skyrocket every time there's a mass shooting.
Where was your outrage at the Federal Government forcing it's will on the states saying they HAD to honor a same-sex marriage from another state? What makes that license any different than one to carry a concealed handgun? They are both licenses issued by a state government.
I do believe the 14th Amendment was used to force the states to honor a same-sex marriage -- All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Guess what -- the same ruling can be applied to carry licenses as well as marriage licenses
Of course, there is always the Full Faith and Credit clause -- Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof
Gay marriage doesn't cause more than 30,000 deaths a year.
So tell me, why should all states abide by the states with the strongest regulations (which are constitutional, by the way)? Why does it have to be the weakest, hm? Why don't states with stronger laws get "full faith and credit," eh? What's up with that? What other purpose does that have but to increase death in states with stronger gun laws? Why do you support more people being killed?
Well, that's Nazi ideology for you.
It has not passed the Congress, only the House.
You think the Senate has any better ethics or logic or common sense?
