I Don’t Want


Charlottesville

June 23, 2022


Humpf. Did our Founding Fathers carry around handguns to protect themselves?


Im sure many are happy with today’s Supreme Court’s decision. As the Joyrnal reports:


The 6-3 decision in the case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, marks the widest expansion of gun rights since 2010, when the court applied nationwide a 2008 ruling establishing an individual right of armed self-defense within the home. It puts in question similar laws in at least eight other states and the District of Columbia, where authorities hold substantial discretion over issuing concealed-weapons permits.


It just seems odd that we are expanding gun rights and overturning a 100 year old law. I guess that doesn’t pass the Alito test about historical practice.


Several years ago I was pumping gas at a gas station in South Carolina. The guy next to me had a large handgun in a holster dangling from his belt. It scared the crap out of me. How about my rights?


I don‘t want to live in a place we’re the norm is to be armed 24/7. id be ok if this were up to states — we are moving toward a time where there are states I will not live in. But thanks to the Second Amendment states aren’t free to establish their own standards on this matter. Unfortunate.
