Repeal the Second Amendment ~ Say It Already! :: 10/21/2017

USA – -( Remember the Grateful Dead? I was never a fan of their music, in fact, when I went to Simsbury High School in 1978-1980 I almost got my ass kicked a few times by a couple of die-hard Dead fans for letting on that I hated the band. (There were lots of Jerry Garcia fans there at the time)

9th Circuit Rules There's No Constitutional Right to Sell Firearms. Will the Supreme Court Care? :: 10/12/2017

Does the Second Amendment protect an individual right to sell firearms to the public? No, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Tuesday in Teixeira v. County of Alameda, a landmark decision affirming the government’s constitutional authority to strictly regulate gun shops. The 9–2 ruling is a victory for gun safety advocates who feared judicial aggrandizement of the right to bear arms could invalidate myriad laws governing firearm commerce. The decision may be imperiled, however, if the plaintiffs appeal to the Supreme Court, where conservative justices are increasingly eager to expand the scope of the Second Amendment.
