1. Great stuff
I haven't finished it, but the court is hinting that if they do not allow concealed carry, they must allow open carry--a point I have made repeatedly on this site.

The spurious argument the anti-gun side tried to make using the Supreme Court's Heller ruling was turned against them. When you look at the context of the Supreme Court's cited authority to justify the presumptive constitutionality of concealed carry bans, the authority makes clear that concealed carry could be banned BECAUSE AND ONLY BECAUSE OPEN CARRY WAS PROTECTED.

Watching the sophists having their heads handed to them was a thing of beauty. Sometimes the system does the right thing. Wow!

Gun control is a house of cards, and the wind is beginning to stir.
