Supreme Court Asked To Consider Gun Store Case
Kevin Felts 01.11.18
What happens when the people have a right to keep and bear arms, but community leaders do not want people to have guns? Here’s an idea, just ban gun stores. Well, rather than banning gun stores outright, just put enough restrictions on them nobody can open a store.
This it the case of Alameda County, California. Local regulations prohibit gun stores from being within 500 feet of a residential area. The problem is, that pretty much stops a gun store from opening in the city.
The people who hoped to open a gun store were left with no choice but to sue the city. The plaintiffs won the first verdict.
Can we all guess what happened when the case was appealed? To give you a hint, what happens to most gun cases in the liberal appeals courts of California? Of course the appeals court said the people had no right to open a gun store.
From The Daily Wire – Big 2nd Amendment Case: Gun Shop Owner’s Lawsuit Heads To The Supreme Court.
Businessmen and gun rights advocates filed a petition with the Supreme Court to overturn a zoning law in Alameda County, California that bans gun shops from operating within 500 feet of a residential area.
Entrepreneurs John Teixeira, Steve Nobriga and Gary Gamaza attempted to open a gun shop in the city of San Lorenzo, but were met with hostility from an archaic law prohibiting the opening of the store near a residential area. This legislation is clearly an attack on the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.
Anyone care to guess how the Supreme Court may rule, if they decide to take the case?
Sure, you have freedom of religion, but no right to open a church.
Freedom of the press? Sure, you can read a newspaper, but you can not publish a newspaper in the city, nor can you have a political blog.
Then again, the liberal judges will probably decide against the people hoping to open a gun store.
Hopefully, one day california will run out of ways to restrict rights.
