Gun carry in the Obama era

2nd Amend.

Gun carry in the Obama era

The ability of Americans to bear arms is on the line in this presidential election. The Supreme Court, which started a new term on Monday, will have little choice but to take up the issue of carry rights within the next few years. All it takes is the appointment of one new justice to shift the balance on this constitutional question.

Oral arguments were heard in Washington Monday in one of the cases that could make its way to the high court. A federal judge will first decide whether the District can outright ban any form of open or concealed carry. In 2008, attorney Alan Gura convinced the Supreme Court to force city officials to recognize the right to keep arms through the Heller v. District of Columbia case.

Now he wants Palmer v. District of Columbia to do likewise with carry rights. “As Heller demonstrated, there are some cases that can and should be resolved simply by interpreting the Constitution,” said Mr. Gura in his opening argument.

    I stand with the 2ND amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. In my opinion it is not negotiable.

    We need to change the direction of this country Listen People there are 180 million gun toting americans in this country. There are 535 people in washington that supposedly run this country , there is no army in the world armed to the hilt like the 180 million of us. If we want to change the direction of this country like we did against the British for the same Bullshit . Obama and the legilature & the courts are pulling shit on us we can just change the government. I doubt the military will take up arms aginst there own friends and families for Obama & His racist administration. They will never be able to disarm us , its really ironic how they are burning Obama’s body in efigy in the middle East plus burning our flag and we ave a guy as President that said Alkaeida is gone. He didn’t kill Ben Laden, the navy Seals did , they are the ones that get the credit.Obama has lied since he took the oath of office , enforcing the laws on the books that he swore he would do and he hasn’t that is reason to impeach this guy.

    The town of New Britain, Connecticut just passed an ordinance that states anyone with a permit to carry a gun must carry it concealed. They use to have to carry them in the open but with all the incidents that have happened recently, people were getting nervous when in a supermarket or at the gas station and they saw someone with a pistol on their hip. So New Britain decided to make it a local law that requires people to carry concealed. Go figure.
