There have been a number of court cases moving forward across the Republic that are pushing back against the desires of citizen control cultists, and one emerging theme seems to be a number of casing that center around the idea of citizens being able to actual bear arms in their daily lives, not just keep them in their homes.
Four cases are presently working their way towards (or are are already before) the U.S. Supreme Court, and the National Rifle Association just filed an amicus brief supporting the plaintiffs targeting New Jersey’s “may issue” concealed carry licencing scheme:
The National Rifle Association is supporting a Sussex County man’s lawsuit seeking a permit to carry his handgun outside of his house, the organization announced this week.
The national lobbying group said it was backing John Drake’s lawsuit with a forthcoming amicus brief, in support of Second-Amendment rights in New Jersey, the organization said. Drake, and other plaintiffs involved in the lawsuit, petitioned last month to have their case heard in the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Law-abiding citizens have a constitutional right to defend themselves beyond their front doorstep,” said Chris W. Cox, the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action.
Drake, of Fredon, is a business owner who owns and services ATMs – and who carries large amounts of cash, according to a report on NJHerald.com. The suit challenges New Jersey law requiring “justifiable need” to acquire concealed-carry permits, according to the report.
To date, the “bearing” argument is still a minority view in the court system (as patently absurd as that is), but one that seems to be gaining ground. It will be interesting to see how this case proceeds, as I’m sure that the New Jersey government will fight this tooth and nail all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
