Little weenie liberals proving once again, they are liberal except when it comes to your rights. They want to limit the size of our sodas; they want to monitor where we drive, how fast we go, whether or not we drive with passengers (mandatory black boxes in all new cars); mandatory smart meters in your homes; what you can feed your children or how many calories they can consume in school.
This says it all -in the first person. Her parents were murdered in Luby’s Cafe in Texas before her eyes. Her licensed gun was in her car because at the time concealed carry was illegal in Texas so she had taken it out of her purse and consequently watched her mother and father gunned down along with 23 pother people that day.
Suzanne went on to serve in the Texas legislature from 1996-2006 and helped changed the concealed carry law allowing people to carry weapons and protect themselves.
Hawaii’s Right to Carry law is ludicrous in it’s obvious absurdity. Its justification and ultimate approval is left entirely to the Chief of Police of the respective counties and according to NRA’s gun laws by State,
“We have been advised that the County Police Departments (of the State of Hawaii) will not approve a Concealed Carry license for any reason.“
Right to Carry, or CCW (carrying a concealed weapon), as it is known in gun rights parlance refers to the practice of carrying a handgun or other weapon in public in a concealed manner, either on one’s person or in close proximity.
Forty-nine states allow citizens to carry concealed weapons, Illinois being the only exception. Illinois has until May 2013 to draft a CCW law after its ban on carrying concealed weapons was overturned in December by a federal appeals court and declared unconstitutional. The judge in that case wrote in the majority opinion:
“The Supreme Court has decided that the 2nd Amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside.”
Illinois’ ban was overturned with the help of the Second Amendment Foundation and 2 individuals who filed suit. Sounds like there needs to be a test cast against Hawaii’s virtual ban on Concealed Carry.
I can't stand it anymore! What is becoming of our country, our basic liberties?
After two careers (18 yrs as a dental hygienist, then 20 as a Realtor) I have to stand up and try to effect some change. I want to make it easier for you to do the same. We have to Get Off Our Butts and spread the word. There are more of us than they think, but we have to make ourselves known before it's too late.
