    Do you think that people should be able to carry a firearm on a plane... where any bullets fired are likely to lead to a explosive decompression? If not, then you need to reconcile the constitutional basis for governments ability to regulate arms on a plane, but not on the ground.
    One Body politic of the People already has literal recourse to our Second Amendment.

    Just those that would try and take Rights away. The rest of society is perfectly safe.

    Yes, since requiring CCW only confirms that lawful people will act lawfully, and renders no other tangible benefit to individuals or socieity at large.

    Why, then, did we have to comply with other OSHA requirements, since we were operating on private property? A private contractor hired by a private person for work don on private property...yet we had to have various licenseure regardless. Why this one, but not that one?

    Gun rights don't really exist in Jersey in the first place.

    I believe State governors, as commanders in chief of that which is expressly declared as Necessary to the security of a free State, should not get a free pass.

I believe the members of the Supreme Court are being cowards in avoiding this issue. And since this is the Roberts court, I am somewhat surprised, not to mention deeply disappointed.

    Discussion?

    Article is here.
    this is fairly consistent with recent Supreme Court decisions.

    Wrong. Ideologically extreme men with guns will shoot to kill another man who took an oath to follow the law. Society just saw an example of the gun totting people at the Bundy ranch. There is much to fear when ignorance has a gun in its hand.
