If there is one thing that I know about lawless nations where dictators tend to rule everything it is that they have taken away people’s rights to talk and to take away their right to defend themselves.
More than that, to take away the means to defend themselves. Our rights are not supposed to be something that they can just take away at a moment’s notice, that is only for the most extreme of circumstances.
The problem with liberals is that they don’t care if you have never broken a law in your life, when it comes to guns they want to treat you like a criminal….
It is well known that globalists, like progressives, have wild contempt for the 2nd amendment and the US constitution which they see as a “charter of negative liberties.” Both the Hawaii state government and the 9th Circuit Court are notoriously globalist and far-left progressive.
This week, in the case of Young V. The State Hawaii, the 9th Circuit court openly legislated from the bench when it overturned a 9th Circuit Panel’s decision and ruled 7-4 that openly carrying firearms in public is not constitutionally protected by the 2nd Amendment
This is despite the fact that the second amendment clearly disallows any infringement by any US government forces of citizens’ right to “keep and bear arms.”
The Epoch Times Reports: An appeals court on Wednesday ruled that states may restrict people from openly carrying firearms in public—upholding a Hawaii gun regulation that bans residents from openly carrying guns without a license.
The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 7-4 that restrictions on carrying guns in public except for hunting do not violate the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms.
“The government may regulate, and even prohibit, in public places—including government buildings, churches, schools, and markets—the open carrying of small arms capable of being concealed, whether they are carried concealed or openly,” Judge Jay Bybee, appointed by former President George W. Bush, wrote in his opinion (pdf) for the court’s majority.
“Our review of more than 700 years of English and American legal history reveals a strong theme: government has the power to regulate arms in the public square,” the judge added, saying, “There is no right to carry arms openly in public; nor is any such right within the scope of the Second Amendment.”
