A granny took the car GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, granny took the car a couple days ago and still has not made it back. Mom’s car; not mine. Said she’d be back last nigh. Maybe I’ll check on her…AFTER I blog!
Free For All Friday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s FRIDAY! No pizza night; maybe an open mat.
First, I want to give a shout out to the family at Sektor Jiu Jitsu here in Corona. Spencer and Albert have put together a kick-ass club with some definite up and comers in the world of BJJ. Got to roll with them last night and again tonight. An atmosphere of Ohana and a great work out! Can’t say enough about them!
OK, now to the Free For All topic which is the gun licensing thing from yesterday.
Now, I have said before and I will say again: it is NOT a judges job to protect your rights. It is their job to interpret the law as written and/or as intended.
So, what did the Supreme Court of Good Ol’ ‘Murica do here?
They said that the way New York does their open carry license thing is NOT Constitutional. And the anti-gun crowd is losing their minds.
See, when a judge does their job, they read the law and ask if it passes Constitutional muster. If it doesn’t, as they said here, they tell the losing party how to fix the problem. But, what happens is the narrative gets hijacked by media and gets blown up in a manner that is NOT productive.
Now, here’s the thing that people need to take into account ESPECIALLY when their representatives are drafting bills to do stuff like New York did. In the recent decision, the Supreme Court laid out HOW to draft a bill that would allow state licensing and pass Constitutional scrutiny. All the state legislature has to do is read the decision and re-write the bill in line with the decision.
Second, the media and others that do not like the opinion are blowing this decision up all over as now EVERYONE will walk around with guns on their hips and shootouts. Nope. THIS decision only relates to New York. New York ONLY. That means all the other states with license requirements keep their license requirements!
So, a bit of Ed-vise for those states legislatures: read this decision and make sure your license requirement is in line with it. Too easy!
Last, for the Supreme Court: read your history outside of the context of case law. I mean read the actual history of frontier towns. There might not have been a regulation specifically banning open carry of firearms actually written. But, the sheriff was sure as hell likely to beat the crap out of a person that was not abiding by what the sheriff told them to do…Check your firearms at the sheriff’s office.
Good Ol’ ‘Murica has a HISTORY of banning firearms in ALL public areas.
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember the best way to carve wood is…WITTLE BY WITTLE! BWAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA…
