"Leftist heads now exploding like popcorn kernels:

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump -- who said he has a concealed carry permit
-- called for the expansion of gun rights Friday, including making those permits
applicable nationwide. In a position paper published on his website Friday afternoon,
Trump called for the elimination of gun and magazine bans, labeling them a 'total failure.'

'Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has
no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own,'
Trump wrote.

It's not a departure from what he's said on the trail this year, though it does mark a shift
from a position he took in his 2000 book 'The America We Deserve,' where Trump stated that
he generally opposes gun control but that he supported a ban on assault weapons and a longer
waiting period to get a gun.

'Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like 'assault weapons',
'military-style weapons' and 'high capacity magazines' to confuse people,' Trump wrote
Friday. 'What they’re really talking about are popular semi-automatic rifles and standard
magazines that are owned by tens of millions of Americans.'

Liberals have long argued that guns should be regulated like automobiles. So what's not to like?

Trump said in the paper he has a concealed carry permit. The permits, which are issued by
states, should be valid nationwide like a driver's license, Trump said. 'If we can do that
for driving -- which is a privilege, not a right -- then surely we can do that for concealed
carry, which is a right, not a privilege,' Trump said.

Trump just called their bluff. Hoo boy."

Let's hope this comes soon... Cuomo is trying to change the pistol license upstate to the State Police.
