Appeals court upholds ban on gun sales to medical marijuana card holders

A federal government ban on the sale of guns to medical marijuana card holders does not violate the 2nd Amendment, a federal appeals court said Wednesday.

The ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals applies to the nine Western states that fall under the court's jurisdiction, including California, Washington and Oregon.

It came in a lawsuit filed by S. Rowan Wilson, a Nevada woman who tried to buy a firearm in 2011 after obtaining a medical marijuana card.

"good"....and when they deny guns to anyone who has even seen a shrink for any reason, that will still be "good"?...and when they deny guns to anyone who has seen a doctor period, that will still be "good"?

"...shall not be infringed." So, 9:34, do you have any prescription medication in your medical history? Maybe your right to bear arms should be denied?

I don't see the court's logic. It seems to me that a person with a card, who can access legal cannabis, and who probably possesses legal cannabis on her person and in her home, would have an increased need for self protection.

POTHEADS. Regular people who enjoy relaxing with the effects of a plants flower.

Never hurt anyone. Never get loud or obnoxious. Never become violent.
Probably have a better understanding of reality than most people who do not indulge.

Same politicians write so many laws and never follow any of them. I'm not following them either. I will not interfere with another's life, liberty, or pursuit of happiness. Beyond that I do what I want when I want. Screw the government crooks and their corrupt system.
