On grounds of redundancy?
I don’t know the details of the Mississippi law in question; whether or not it is poorly written, whether or not it needs a redo. It is possible that it could be unconstitutional due to language used to go around the proverbial elbow.
None of that is relevant, to me, because a new law to legalize open carry is redundant. There is already an national open carry law; it’s called the 2nd Amendment.
The problem is all the other gun-ban laws, federal and state, that have infringed on the original gun law. Instead of cobbling together a mish-mash of new piecemeal laws that offer some vague respite from the oppression of anti-gunners, state legislatures could simply repeal.
We don’t need new laws that specify when, where, how, why and who can open carry (or conceal carry, or carry glued to our foreheads).
This prosecution was an attempt to overturn Florida’s “stand your ground law.” Florida dramatically changed the law effective October 1, 2005 by amending Florida Statute 776.013(3). Previously, one had to run away if possible when threatened.
Florida’s “stand your ground law” had to be reversed or nullified. If owning a gun is useful for self-defense, then banning guns becomes more difficult. So self-defense had to be eliminated so that owning a gun would have no purpose. How else could liberals create a population dependent upon government?
The Obama Administration directly funded and organized racially-charged protests demanding prosecution. Judicial Watch, a public-interest non-profit law firm, obtained the documents under the Freedom of Information Act Request.
George Zimmerman filed suit against NBC Universal Media for editing his call to 911 the night he surveilled Trayvon Martin. The edit made it appear that Zimmerman was a racist when he said, “He looks black,” but the 911 operator asked Zimmerman “is he black, white or Hispanic? Zimmerman answered: “He looks black.” In Barack Obama’s America merely identifying someone as “black” is racist. But…the FBI’s extensive investigation shows no racism on Zimmerman’s part. If the DOJ files a civil rights case, and they are pondering doing so, what do they do about their own FBI conclusion?
And that’s where Zimmerman originally screwed up – he answered a direct question. The proper response (as recently demonstrated by a honcho of the ever so honorable IRS) would have been “I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate me …” or perhaps, since time was of essence he could have just said “I plead the 5th!”
Or as demonstrated by another government honcho, perhaps he should have just said “What difference does it make?”.
The lawsuit has been on hold due to the criminal trial, but take a look at this from NBC:
“[I]f Zimmerman is convicted, that fact alone will constitute substantial evidence that the destruction of his reputation is the result of his own criminal conduct, and not of the broadcasts at issue which, like countless other news reports disseminated by media entities throughout the country, reported on the underlying events.”
Oki doki, so if that’s true, NBC, then the flip side of that would be
If Zimmerman is exonerated, that fact alone will constitute substantial evidence that the destruction of his reputation is the result of NBC’s liberal, racist bias; and like countless other propaganda reports by the media is grounds for getting sued into oblivion.
And getting an ass whoopin in prison.
Everyday we see evidence that the Left-Stream media is comfortable with lying, omitting, and manipulating news. NBC has stated their right to do so in the early stages of an investigation, before a person is charged, because if convicted of something, that person damaged their own reputation. Does any of that make sense to you?
… some jurors wanted to find Zimmerman guilty of something, but there was just no place to go based on the law.
» Trayvon Martin Suspended From School Three Times: Report
This article was available in March 2012. Anybody actually interested in Martin’s true nature had access to it.
That does not include (THHO)Obama, Sharpton and the DOJ – obviously.

That Zimmerman is a …. a …. JOOOOOOOO!
This revelation changes everything, especially coming from the reliable fount of wisdom that is the Righteous Black Panthers.
The New Black Panther Party was among the first groups to agitate for Zimmerman to be prosecuted, starting with a rally outside the Sanford, Florida police headquarters on March 11, 2012 — just three days after the Associated Press had errantly referred to Zimmerman as “white.” Al Sharpton, widely credited with fanning the flames, arrived the next day.

The Senate’s leading Democrat, who led repeated filibusters of President George W. Bush’s nominations when Republicans held the majority, said he’s changed his mind since then, and he accused the GOP of forcing his hand by slow-walking so many of President Obama’s nominees.
The Treasury Department has admitted for the first time that confidential tax records of several political candidates and campaign donors were improperly scrutinized by government officials, but the Justice Department has declined to prosecute any of the cases.
Its [Treasury] investigators also are probing two allegations that the Internal Revenue Service “targeted for audit candidates for public office,”
The disclosures deal another blow to the IRS and the Obama administration, which are still grappling with revelations that IRS agents inappropriately targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extraordinarily burdensome scrutiny during President Obama’s first term.
Having spent four years mocking the Tea Partiers and denying the effectiveness of the Tea Party movement, the administration used IRS and DOJ resources to bridle that non-existent effectiveness.
Simply put, the federal government harassed and intimidated the opposition to the president in order to assure his re-election. And now openly admit it … and dare us to do something about it.
Headlines from November 1974:
» New Ice Age Could Be In Our Lifetime!
The warning came in a major television documentary showing that international scientists have changed their minds about the speed with which the world’s “weather machine” can change gear.
“The threat of a new ice age must now stand along side nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale ‘ death and mistery for mankind” …
It’s a paradox, ya know. According to the “climate scientists” of the 1970s you are now dead, frozen at the bottom of a glacier. At the same time, and according to the same “scientists” you are now nothing more than bleached bones in an arid globalZwarmZ-baked desert, buried under a sand dune.
… it’s not that the media has a problem, the truth is the media IS the problem
