    That could have gotten ugly. Just imagine the stipulations if that case went the other way.

    Finally, the law's contours are beginning to get filled in.

    Notice one thing, the case was thrown out by multiple courts (appeals) on the basis of the 2d amendment. Anyone following gun laws for just about any length of time realizes this is a change in the way the courts are viewing the 2A.

    It wasn't fought or won on any state law or federal law outside the 2A, it was a pure 2A defense. I thought that was great.

    That's good, since I store the wine next to the ARs.





    Actually, I cannot believe it was necessary to clarify this. Whatever happened to common sense? If I go up to the biker bar, drink the two drinks it takes for me to pass the legal limit, ride home on the back of the designated driver's bike, and we go straight to bed, walking past the gun safe on the way, how the HELL is that supposed to be a crime?

    The American political system (headed by the kenyan) has not finished the King's definition of common sense. So, it is not allowed anywhere in the kingdom.

    Where I'm at I could legally walk around drunk with mine on me. If I fire it while drunk it's illegal with an exception for using it for lawful self defense.

    I looked it up after an off duty LEO still in uniform was involved in a fender bender while intoxicated, curious about him being in ppossesion of his sidearm.
