And another attempt at suppressing RKBA gets slapped down



Are you listening Gavin?

You can't make it harder to own and carry a gun than you make it to vote, protest, or write a letter to the editor. Rights are rights, and the fact that some assholes don't like other people exercising their rights means exactly zero. In fact, I take a lot of glee at watching people who would restrict my rights - be that who I marry, what I carry, what I write, or if I protest - being made miserable.

And the emergency appeal is GOING to get slapped down, as it should. The only thing any attempts to restrict *any* rights should result in are horrific legal bills for those trying to impinge upon them. The fact someone might be bothered by me carrying a firearm means exactly as little to me as the fact they may be bothered that I have a husband of the same sex as myself, in other words LESS than zero, a feature not a bug.

SCOTUS sending several more gun control cases back to lower courts

In light of last week's ruling — which said that Americans have a right to carry a gun outside the home — lower courts should take another look at several cases that had been awaiting action by the high court, the court said. Those cases include ones about high-capacity magazines, an assault weapons ban, and a state law that limits who can carry a gun outside the home.
