    From the article:


    “Unless a police officer has prior knowledge that a specific individual is not permitted to carry a concealed firearm, and absent articulable facts supporting reasonable suspicion that a firearm is being used or intended to be used in a criminal manner, there simply is no justification for the conclusion that the mere possession of a firearm, where it lawfully may be carried, is alone suggestive of criminal activity.”

    This is what I call a "common sense gun law".

    Oh my gosh this goes arm and arm with another old concept, presumed innocent until proven guilty. How novel

    And from Yankees no less!! (No offense to you yanks on here). I’m just teasing. Seriously, it’s nice to see an opinion like that in today’s day and age. No matter the locale.

    Now if we can only get that same message up into the land of "The Battle of Lexington and Concord"... we would once again have the shot heard round the world.

    i wish that every member of congress and ex mayor bloomberg would digest this perfect example of “common sense gun law.” let’s get scotus to repeat it for the whole country.

    IMHO the guy should not have taken his gun out for a show and tell in a public place, but he had the right to do so. And these words are the biggest load of BS I have heard in a very long time.

    The majority decision today necessarily leads to the conclusion that individuals who elect to carry firearms forego other constitutional rights, like the Fourth Amendment right to have law enforcement officers “knock-and-announce” before forcibly entering homes. . . . Likewise, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that individuals who choose to carry firearms necessarily face greater restriction on their concurrent exercise of other constitutional rights, like those protected by the First Amendment.

    There are plenty of other states that should take note of this as well.
