Another example of the long arm of the Federal Government interfering in states rights.

State appeals gun rights ruling

CHEYENNE -- The state of Wyoming says the federal agency that enforces gun laws was wrong to reject a state law that seeks to allow people convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence charges to regain their firearms rights in the state courts.

Wyoming this week filed its opening brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Denver challenging a ruling this May by U.S. District Judge Alan Johnson of Cheyenne.

Who is better to make such decisions?

The Federal Government or the local authorities?

Seems to me our Founding Fathers had it right all along when they created a system which distributed power among the people.


Why not?

We all know of the occasional massacre on school campuses. How many of us understand that the perfect place to commit mass murder is best done in a place where by law nobody is allowed to defend themselves?

Why not change the law?

In Texas, it isn't surprising to see cowboy hats, belt buckles and boots glistening under the sun. But there's one piece missing from the cowboy ensemble when Texans mosey on over to school campuses: a gun.
According to state law, guns are banned in several places, including schools, places of worship, correction facilities, bars, sporting events and other locations. Currently, individuals with concealed handgun licenses must check their weapon at the door, but maybe not for long.

This is going to be interesting to watch, stay tuned.
