Posted on 10/15/2018 2:09:29 PM PDT by Sarcasm Factory
Now that a bare conservative majority finally exists on the Supreme Court, it's hard to refrain from wondering whether one more solidly conservative justice would be enough to give a fighting chance to a lawsuit claiming the right to openly carry firearms without a license across every state in the Union, especially New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California, and Hawaii. It's simply supercalifragilisticexpialidocious to think of hundreds of rabidly anti-gun politicians in those states grinding their teeth in impotent hate as free citizens of every state traipsed freely within their jurisdictions with their loaded firearms, sporting maximum-capacity magazines, hanging at their sides.
Okay, nice but how to stop on a year?
We’re nearly there anyway.
If they can force gay marriage on all states and overwrite state constitutional laws banning it,
then for a right explicitly guaranteed protection and defense in the federal constitution,
it certainly should be something that gets done.
Paying attention to Young vs Hawaii.
If we win this, we will have nationwide constitutional carry.
Crime will drop.
Lives will be saved.
And democrats will FREEK OUT!!!!
I am all for both open and concealed carry. I have a TX CHL. But I am a bigger fan of states rights.
If Massachussetts doesn’t want me to have a pistol on me while in their great state, so be it. Lots of places in Texas I can spend my money.
The right to bears arms....
I’m thinking states rights will be protected, as they decide where guns are allowed in their own state. Example, I cant bring a gun into a court room. So if I cant do that, the right has guardrails, and a conservative SCOTUS will not step onto a states turf and dictate. Another example, fireworks. I can have firecrackers in my car in one state, but not another.
I would love to see a universal carry permit.
I live in MA, and they dont want me to carry. Let alone someone from out of state.
This is NOT a states rights issue. It is in the Federal Constitution. The Government shall NOT disarm us. It is our right.
What state has ever had the right to violate a Constitutional provision?
Preaching to the converted chief.
Should allow concealed.
That way you don’t “scare” the gun grabbers who claim to be scared by the sight, and the one carrying is not subject to their harassment.
I should be able to carry on my body or possess a gun in anything I own in every state.
Make it ‘law of the land’ through the courts- just like they did with gay marriage... except this one is actually in the constitution
You know the Libs like to use the phase ‘settled law’, well this is settled Constitution!
Congress can pass a uniform federal carry law. There is already one on the books for retired cops; it can be amended to include every one else.
One s Second Amendment rights shouldnt end at a state border.
And that's fine for those who reside in the great state of Texas. But, does the US Constitution apply to residents of all states, or just some? Many are willing to stay and fight, rather than walk away from parents, children, grandchildren, siblings and other family, not to mention communities, church, careers, friends, real estate, etc.
That said, I'm not comfortable with the current court, and would prefer the replacement of one more leftist before sending them a critical 2A case that will effect our rights for generations.
As long as national ccw is included, count me in.
They say that if you need permission, it’s not a right.
Permits are permission, not your right.
It’s a tough area there. To ban our natural ability to defend ourselves (Deer have antlers, sharks have teeth.. Humans have brains and design devices to keep ourselves at the top of the food chain) anywhere is to tell us “You’re not worth saving. You should be hurt or killed.”
I dream of a day when every single person, at the age that their parents consent to, can carry any weapon of their choosing for any reason that they see fit.
