Ohio Supreme Court Decision

At Zorro's insistence.

The comment I left about this on several other blogs was something along the lines of how funny it is when government-hating, libertarian-leaning, folks revel in government intervention. 

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.


  1. Speaking only for myself, I'm not "government-hating"; rather, I demand that the government be kept on the Constitution's very short leash.

    The Cleveland government tried to slip that leash, and the Ohio government smacked 'em down, as, of course, is entirely right and proper.

  2. Actually this is the court telling city governments that they cannot meddle in gun rights.

  3. This is one government telling another government that they can’t intervene on citizen’s rights. How is that hypocritical of libertarian-leaning folks to revel in this decision?

  4. Heller-McDonald--good decisions

    This one obviously another good decision.

    Government interference is acceptable when the large government tells the smaller that it cannot legislate for the safety of its citizens.

    These people have zip in common with the "American Patriots" of the War for Indepence:

    refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good...
    abolishing our most valuable Laws

    Benedict Arnold was right!

  5. Yeah, sure, Zorro, it's "right and proper" when the state smacks down the city, but when the flavor of the Supreme Court changes and the Fed smacks down some states, let's see what you have to say then.

    In other words, what's "right and proper" is what you agree with not what's right and proper at all.

  6. Mike, it doesn't have anything to do with who is smacking down whom, so long as it violation of rights that are being smacked down. Zorro and others have been very consistent on what is "right and proper"

  7. I don't know, TS. It sure seems that "right and proper" is what you guys agree with. Did you read that thing by Dan Baum? He made a good point that the non gun onwers have rights too.
