Posted on 07/13/2013 12:32:38 PM PDT by blueyon
Earlier this month we reported on the Mississippi judge, Hinds County Circuit Court Judge Winston Kidd, who issued an injunction blocking the new open carry law there from taking effect.
The judge says the law is too vague to be constitutional.
The judge originally scheduled a hearing to discuss the law and the injunction for Monday, July 7.
Yesterday, the judge made the injunction permanent. This means the bill is blocked from becoming law barring intervention by a higher court.
Previously, the Mississippi Supreme Court declined to rule on the injunction, saying they didnt have the power to stop the injunction prior to the hearing. It is unclear what action the Supreme Court can and will take now.

Can't make this stuff up.
Most if not all of these a##wipes no nothing aobut the constitution
>>The judge says the law is too vague to be constitutional.
In a free country, you block a law because it is too vague to be constitutional to prevent the government from taking something away from citizens!
In the ObamaNation, “too vague” means that the people cannot have a right restored even if it has been passed by proper legistlative action.
We are no longer free people.
No longer do referendum or legislatures create laws. Executive orders and judges are now the law-makers.
"Vague" laws are what made America great before all these black robed tyrants came along. These clowns now have power that the Founding Fathers never intended for them to have. Before we can save this country, the judicial branch is going to have to be put back in its place. Three equal branches. The Constitution never intended for the judicial branch to have the power to trump the other two.
“.....the right of the people to keep and bear CONCEALED arms shall not be infringed”
There. Fixed it! /sarcasm;)
Too vague to be constitutional? Apparently judges can be as vague as they want, however.
It would be nice if a judge could be ruled unconstitutional...
I would say that this judge is ready to move on with an offer of employment elsewhere..
The people in Mississippi will not put up with a judge like this for long.
If my speculation is incorrect, I am confident somebody from Miss. will set me straight.
Yeah, where in the constitution does it say a law cannot be vague? What part of the constitution is this judge referring to? It’s a B.S. excuse, anyway. How do you make an absolute determination that something is “vague”? It’s a contradiction.
Here’s the reason. Need i say more?
Generally, this kind of ruling seems to happen when a government gets overeager and uses sloppy language in a law as a cloak for choosing arbitrarily who is going to get busted. I am not a full time civics watcher by any means but I never heard a law that was meant to restore a usurped right get knocked down for this. Looks like the devil went down to Mississippi.
I looked at your link, realized it was a link to a profile type page and thought to myself,”I bet he’s...”
Yep. There you go.
And I really wasn’t even thinking about it while reading the excerpt.
Impeach and remove. Like Gingrich said: a half a dozen scalps ought to show them.
The states AG, jim hood, democrat, is behind this. It will now go to State Supreme Court and be overturned.
He’s safe in his district, he could be caught in bed with a live boy or dead girl and it wouldn’t matter.
Former Treasurer and VP of Jackson naacp
Just another Affirmative Action Jackson . . of Jackson
The politics of racist tyranny
Hes safe in his district, he could be caught in bed with a live boy or dead girl and it wouldnt matter.
And perhaps even a dead boy in this case.
Let the legislature and Governor veto the judge, and refuse to obey his decision on the grounds that it is too stupid.
Does that about cover it?
Let me guess....... If Obama had a son it would look like this judge ...........
He looks retarded.
“Let me try to understand this ... For some reason, legislators in Mississippi found it necessary to pass a law allowing citizens to do something the Constitution already allowed. Then a judge ruled that the law echoing the Constitution was unconstitutional.
Does that about cover it? “
YEAP that does........
with the 'RATS!
Known: Democrat and Judicial activism at its worst!
Probable:Product of affirmative action.
Mmmmmmmm, Mmmmmmm, Mmmmmm!
Do it anyway.
A judge only has as much power as a person gives him, or her, or it.
Give them none.
They are not in charge, we are.
Sounds like a good place for an Andrew Jackson moment, “Judge Winston Kidd has made his decision; now let him enforce it!” ;-)
in most states that have faux homosexual marriage, a judge/judges legislated from the bench to bring it about, usually against the will of the people in those states.
Is this judge elected or appointed? I can see those appointed making their own special little laws on the fly but those who are elected are likely to get the boot next time around.
A semi-literate, affirmative action “judge” wields more power than the entire Mississippi State legislature. Only in today’s world can a moron who holds his position simply due to melanin content rule that the Constitution is unconstitutional.
Who didn’t see this coming? “Judge” Kidd is one of Holder’s Peeps, and a Democrat.
So let’s see . . . the law abiding citizen cannot “open carry” while the criminal element may and WILL “carry concealed”. This whole Country is bass akwards.
Winston Kidd, enemy of the state, search and destroy!
He is a judge of color in Jackson where they have been working on ethnic cleansing of crackers for some years.
Vague? Like our TAX CODE, judge?
How vague is ‘shall not be infringed’ to begin with?
"For some reason..."? Absolutely!
More than a decade ago the State Supreme Court ruled that a gun in a holster was partially concealed therefore it was a 'concealed' weapon.
They went so far as to say that if a person tied a string around a trigger guard, then the point of contact of the string and the trigger guard was 'concealed' therefore THAT was a concealed weapon!
Take a look at the pics of the major players that are opposing this.
