This decision in the US Court of Appeals should go all the way to SCOTUS.
I am personally sick of seeing all these mental midgets that tote their guns like their penis and trying to look all macho and intimidating…..to me they are cowards pretending they are all that and feel they must run in packs.
But a recent decision by the Court of Appeals should do something about the insanity that mental midgets feel they have the right to do.
an en banc panel of the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that the second amendment right to keep and bear arms does not citizens include the right to carry a firearm, either openly or concealed, in public .
The court issued the ruling in the case of George Young Jr. V Hawaii, a lawsuit challenging a Hawaii firearm licensing law, which states residents seeking license to openly carry a firearm in public must demonstrate “the urgency or the need” to carry a firearm, must be of good moral character, and must be “engaged in the protection of life and property.” The court said, “There is no right to carry arms openly in public; nor is any such right within the scope of the Second Amendment.”
The majority opinion also states “we can find no general right to carry arms into the public square for self-defense.” The majority further argued that the second amendment applies to the “defense of hearth and home” and “the power of the government to regulate carrying arms in the public square does not infringe in any way on the right of an individual to defend his home or business.”
Finally some justices with half a brain has stepped up….to do something to curb the insanity from morons with their guns.
The 7-4 decision said restrictions on carrying guns in public do not fall within the scope of what is protected by the Second Amendment.
“The government may regulate, and even prohibit, in public places – including government buildings, churches, schools, and markets – the open carrying of small arms capable of being concealed, whether they are carried concealed or openly,” Judge Jay Bybee wrote for the majority.
If you need your guns to feel safe then we do not need the police whose job is to protect the people from harm.
Like I said this should send the gun nuts into cardiac arrests and make them whine and moan….and in the end the NRA will step up and take this to SCOTUS.
My last thought….if you are an “originalist”….meaning that the Constitution should be interpreted in its original writing then the guns they wrote about were “MUSKETS”……
Just a thought.

Very well stated, old buddy! I firmly agree! (and at my age anything standing firm is a plus)
Yes, they should have to carry one-shot muzzle-loaders. That might make having guns less appealing. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
