***Now the fight over gun rights really begins. ***
How true! I can read any newspaper in the US, order it through the mail, cross state lines to buy one.
Such should now apply for guns.
But I can’t buy a handgun out of state.
I can’t buy one through the mails.
I can’t own certain handguns or rifles in some areas.
I can’t own more than one in some cities and then the city may dictate what I am allowed to own.
Yes, the fight is now really on.
bahaha! I get it...
Now, when will somebody file a lawsuit that forces DoD to allow us to carry weapons (on which we’re trained and which we carry everywhere else) on DoD installations?
Sounds like you might make a good Plaintiff.
I live in NJ.. someone please help me!!
what your ideal of trained and some bureaucrat ideal is I am sure will not be the same
Well duh, did anyone ever read the 10th Amendment?
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
ANJRPC recently filed a lawsuit against the state of NJ seeking repeal of the law that limits the purchase of handguns to no more than one every thirty days. The cavalry is approaching slowly even though the sound rattling sabers and hooves is still faint. After all,we’re still waiting for a favorable verdict from the courts on the Menendez recall issue.
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
I always giggle a little bit in nervous hysteria when reading the "Laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding" bit...
Right now it's a bit fuzzy as to what that protection really is. I guess it will take many court cases and much time to sort that out.
Indeed, not to mention the "shall not be infringed" part
--that one I worry about--
As long as you are armed you don’t have anything to worry about unless the other guy has more firepower than you do.
Uh, don’t forget being ABLE to hit your target.
We turned over rubble with 18 inch guns on the japanese islands, then the real fight began.....
Give me accuracy over caliber ANY day. Of course, don’t take this to the extreme.
Either end is bad. 223 is about as light as anyone should go in rifle, and 9mm in a handgun. But no use talking a lady in carrying a desert eagle in her purse because she will “out firepower” the bad guy....
Heh....quite a thought, little old lady with a Desert Eagle in her purse!
And if a Judge says otherwise, remind them that they too are "bound thereby"...
Like a Dog: The Origins of Barack Obamas Petulance Excellent VDH
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
excellent. a nation without the right to own firearms is a nation without defense from tyranny.
