Mississippi Supreme Court Overturns Open Carry Injunction
WREG Memphis ^ | 8-29-13 | George Brown

Posted on 08/29/2013 3:00:20 PM PDT by WKB

(Jackson, MS) The Mississippi Supreme Court has ruled a Hinds County Circuit Court judge erred when he granted a motion delaying House Bill 2 from taking effect.

That is the open carry law in Mississippi.

The judge ruled the bill was unconstitutionally vague.

The Supreme Court decided that decision was incorrect.

House Bill 2 would allow people without a permit to carry firearms as long as they are within sight. Concealed weapons still require a permit.

That's good news.

The United States Citizens KNOW that they're going to have to fight TYRANTS in their own government.
You cannot protect life, without the ability to take life.

While you are WAITING for the police to respond, someone could be losing their life.
All people of a responsible age should be armed.

As EternalVigilance reminded us:

Click here to read the 12 page pamphlet.


Let us NEVER FORGET THAT !

Let's subjugate them to OUR end game, DUST!
"COMPROMISE" is a DIRTY word!
People who study the Bible know that COMPROMISE almost always leads to destruction.


It's time to mock the "Gun Control" Zombies!
"Gun Control" is a firm grip, steady breathing, accurate aim (developed by lots of practice), and a slow trigger pull.


The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
We need to learn from the Swiss and implement their "gun control measures" here in the United States right now, today!
These laws are the ones we should shove into the "2nd Amendment Haters" faces.

The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
Let's adopt THEIR LAWS !

Remember: Read Second Amendment: It’s Not About Hunting, IT'S ABOUT TYRANNY .

I suspect the police will have something to say about/to open carriers but this is still excellent news.

Good. That judge should be removed for his ridiculous ruling.

“House Bill 2 would allow people without a permit to carry firearms as long as they are within sight. Concealed weapons still require a permit.”

When I was a kid in the ‘60’s in Florida, I occasionally saw people open carry guns. They appeared to be on their way to or coming from ranges or boat trips. Occasionally, you’d see cowboys (real ones) with holstered guns. I don’t know when this stopped. But in the ‘70’s a couple from Arizona (I think) stopped in an outdoor eatery after range shooting. Their guns were holstered and they weren’t being ostentatious. Some folks looked panicked at the mere sight. They were surprised at the reaction and took their guns to the car. I spoke with them and they didn’t know what to make of the reaction. After all, it’s not like this was New York.

But that Florida is long gone. No more outdoor eateries. No cowboys. Roads are paved and have curbs and there’s somebody controlling every aspect of what you do. (At the last place I worked, I got in trouble because an HR lady overheard me discussing concealed carry with a machinist who made his own guns. I would have been written up except I was at too high a level and it didn’t really violate a written rule. The rule was that you couldn’t discuss anything offensive. I asked her how, exactly a discussion on concealed carry was offensive and she couldn’t point to a written rule.)

“Hood said there is a lot of confusion about open carry law/concealed weapon law, but he said House Bill 2 only clarified what constitutes a concealed weapon. He said the legislation didn’t change any law. He said open carry has always been allowed in the 1890 state Constitution.”

The only confusion about any of this was caused by jim hood and his office at his direction. He’s a democrat and I believe is against firearms peroid, he confused the original concealed carry and interrpted it to mean open carry was then illegal and if legal concealed firearm was inadverdently exposed that individual was then a law breaker. When the legislature worked to correct it his office was at least advising this group in Hinds county and then interrpted that this decision was statewide and not just Hinds County. And now he comes out in favor of clarififing the law? How did we ever re-elect this devious backstabber?

Yep, but if open carry is what it takes to convince some folks to not-reelect him, I'll hammer that too, in my neighborhood walks and talks. ;)

Good point. Spoke with one of his local campaign office staffers this weekend. Said their office was surprised by the fallout from the Dallas fiasco continues and are privately concerned that it may very well continue to be an issue. Sure hope we have someone else who is more Cruz-like to vote for.

You need to get out more. That Florida is alive and well in Highlands, Hardee, DeSoto and Okeechobee Counties.

“That Florida is alive and well in Highlands, Hardee, DeSoto and Okeechobee Counties. “

Open carry in those counties too? You’re right. I haven’t been to any of those. Now, I only travel for a purpose. It’s too expensive to just drive around as I once did.

“I suspect the police will have something to say about/to open carriers but this is still excellent news.”

In some towns the police are distributing “gun free zone signs” at taxpayer expense. They don’t tell them that “gun free zones” are the danger zones.

The rule was that you couldn’t discuss anything offensive. I asked her how, exactly a discussion on concealed carry was offensive and she couldn’t point to a written rule.

If that were me, she would have had a case against me by the end of the conversation.

I think the more grey I get in my beard, the less tolerant of stupid useless people I become. Maybe the cause and effect is backwards though... the more stupid people that society expects me to tolerate, the more grey I get.

Woo Hoo! Probably won’t do a lot of open carry but will be nice to not have to worry about being so concealed it can be awkward to reach... Now to find out when it goes into effect - one would assume immediately, but ...

I may just have to open carry an AR on my back in protest of the black robed tyrant that tried to kill the Constitution. Why is it WLOX TV only had blacks speaking out against Freedom and Liberty? Why is that? Blacks can open carry too... that is the percentage of their population that has not lost their rights via criminal convictions. Same goes for whites or purple people... or even green people with pink polka dots.

Yep - I went out to a local news source and it verified that it takes effect immediately. Gonna be fun watching to see how many folks take advantage. I'll probably hold off until LEOs settle their nerves.
