I’m passing this along without making any comment. Why? Because I’m not a lawyer (although I play one on TV . . .) and I don’t want to make a fool of myself. Well, not more than I usually do. From the Raw Story:
A judge ruled Thursday that a Louisiana law prohibiting felons from carrying firearms was in violation of a recently ratified [state] constitutional amendment, according to The Times-Pacayune.
â€śThe courts cannot question the wisdom of fundamental law and frustrate the will of the people; their function is to interpret and apply that law,â€ť he wrote. â€śAfter reviewing the law and applying a strict scrutiny standard, the Court finds La R.S. 14:95.1 unconstitutional in its entirety.â€ť
Interesting but creepy. Then again, as a reader here has often pointed out, if someone can’t be trusted with a gun, then they shouldn’t be on the streets in the first place.
