This idea would now seem to be endorsed by the Brady Campaign, as there is a White House petition for it as well. You can see the kind of juice the Brady Campaign has by the numbers appearing there. I’m wondering what other fundamental constitutional right requires you to pee pee in a cup before you can exercise it. It’s certainly interesting to see what new and strange ideas the Brady Campaign is supporting.
An additional 200 signatures have been added to the anti-HR822 petition since this morning. I’m becoming more convinced the White House may be using the e-mails they are collecting to get people to sign that petition. An intrepid reader has noted many of these folks track to individuals who are just generic lefties.
If you get anything from the White House, or anyone else, asking you to sign that petition, please forward it along to me. This could be a critical piece of evidence that could be used as a political club when the elections roll around. This is especially true if the e-mail is deceptive.
UPDATE: Welcome Instapundit readers. Just FYI, the pro-HR822 petition, which is the bill that create a national recognition scheme for concealed carry licenses, meaning states will recognize licenses from other states universally, can be found here. Please take some time to sign your name to it, so we can beat the forces of Obama and Mayor Bloomberg who are attempting to defeat it.
