SAF VICTORY STRIKES DOWN NORTH CAROLINA EMERGENCY POWERS GUN BAN
A federal district court judge in North Carolina has just struck down that state’s emergency power to impose a ban on firearms and ammunition outside the home during a declared emergency, ruling that the provision violates the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
My paternal Grandparents and Great Grandparents are there. No one has been buried there since my Aunt Eveline in 1985, and I've not been back since. My Uncle Claude use to take care of it but after he passed no family stepped up.
The Park Rangers did and have done an excellent job taking care of it. Thanks guys.
I've also heard a lot about the implied politics of the novel/movie and I thinks it's like Alan Moore's V for Vendetta in that you can read into it what you want. I lean toward it being an indictment of big government and the MSM, but someone else might say it a right-wing government gone in league with FoxNews gone amok. Who cares? I don't. It's all good stuff. Go see it.
What we shouldn't be doing is letting the mob drive the court's actions, or anti-gun groups looking for a new relevancy use this tragedy to push their anti-gun agenda. Otherwise, this just becomes their standard blood dance and that would be a fucking waste.
Many thanks to Say Uncle for the link...
...and you as well Sean.
Girl, 14, banned from buying Glee stationery because ‘lethal’ pencil sharpener ‘could be used as a weapon’
A spokesman for the national chain of 99p Stores said that they had no such age policy in place regarding pencil sharpeners, but defended the actions of the cashier in question.Git.
He said: 'Pencil sharpeners are not an age restricted product and if we have refused a sale on this occasion we would rather that our staff are over cautious rather than under cautious.'
H/T to Borepatch.
Solution to Alameda County fair gun show ban?H/T to David.
A 12-year battle over gun shows at the Alameda County fair took a new twist Monday when a county lawyer told a federal appeals court that gun sales would be allowed if the weapon were secured to a table - and a gun-rights advocate reluctantly agreed that the idea was a possible solution.
Good shooting sir.
H/T to Stranger.
I'm not sure if the bad guy was armed or not. I'm also not sure I care. The store owner should be congratulated.
Only if he was riding an 870....and that ended the discussion.
Lawdog, it don't suck. In fact, it's quite good.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich suffers primary defeat in OhioI've no idea if his Democrat opponent is any beater on gun rights than he was, but at least he won't be going back to Congress.
Locally, Brad Miller isn't going to run for another term. The NC Legislature redrew the district lines and Miller would have to run against anti-gun Congreeman David Price. He decided not to. One less anti-gun politician to worry about.
I also noticed that Collins has made a documentary called Caveman: V. T. Hamlin & Alley Oop. I have a couple of the Kitchen Sink alley Oop collections and it's good stuff. It's now at the top of the queue. Again, can't fricking wait.
I should go walkabout on the net more often.
Mom Says TSA Agent Made Her Pump Breast Milk Before Boarding PlaneI understand the TSA Admin has since apologized. The big problem is the TSA even exists. It's an agency so eager to expand their power with so little demonstrated success in return for the expense to our liberty that we should all be scared of what's to come. I would request that they hire competent employees but then we be well and truly fucked.
Federal judge says gun owners need not provide 'good reason,' rules Maryland law unconstitutionalNot a whole lot of wiggle room in that statement and lots of other good stuff here. I'm pretty sure that Maryland will appeal. Hopefully, this is a step toward the end of "may issue" in Maryland.
"A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and substantial reason' why he should be permitted to exercise his rights," Legg wrote. "The right's existence is all the reason he needs."
Yeah, I know. I could like answer the phone but I don't pick up on unknown numbers and I'm not that curious.
Update: ...and keeps ringing and ringing. At least four more calls today. My curiosity grows.
