    There is no doubt that outlawing open carry (of a handgun) violates the 2A, but that is the law in Texas (even with a CHL).

    By not hearing the case, they allowed the lower court's interpretation to stand. It's just not the ruling you would have wished for.

    Are there any other individual constitutional rights that one enjoys only while in their home? It does not take a legal genius to make that simple call.

    Why do you consider them gun 'nuts'? Because they believe differently than you do? Because they believe all Americans should have the right to practice the second amendment?

    Gun nut? OK, I'm a gun nut. I will wear that moniker proudly. Best way to deal with the kind of name calling you are doing. So keep flinging that poo. It doesn't bother me in the least.

    Precisely my point. The SCOTUS has just ruled that states can require "may issue" permits for individual constitutional rights. That is HUGE, meaning that only indivuduals selected by the state have 2A rights. What is next - allowing state "may issue" permits for having an attorney present during police questioning?

    So the same people who are thrilled about the ruling on prayer are dismayed at the court bowing to "political pressure" on this one. I guess as long as it's your political pressure, it's OK.

    I'm consistent. I am against the school prayer ruling too..... Well, actually, I'd be for it if they allowed Pastafarianism in our schools. Talk Like a Pirate Day could become a real American tradition. ARRRRRR!!

    That's one popular position to take but that only adds a third reason why SCOTUS wisely stayed away....let the legislative branch do their job.

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.
    I would add that to carry outside the home, one should also have full FBI variety background check, pass a required gun safety/handling/proficiency course, and register your firearm. This is what I had to do to get a CCW in Idaho, one of the reddest states in the country, well, I didn't have to register my handgun, but I think probably I should have been required to if I was going to carry such that if my gun and I got separated and the police arrived, the police would immediately know what they were looking for and what threat it might cause them.
