Mississippi High Court Upholds State's Open-Carry Gun Law

JACKSON, Miss. – The Mississippi Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously upheld the state’s open carry-gun law, allowing it to take effect after a circuit judge’s order had kept it on hold about two months.
“This court now finds that the circuit judge erred as a matter of law when he found House Bill 2 to be vague and, therefore, unconstitutional. He also erred when he stated that a ‘reasonable person reading the bill could not discern what the law allows and what it prohibits,’” according to the ruling signed by Justice Randy Pierce.

The problem with the gun free zones are twofold. One, they attract the insane who wish to create a lot of mayhem on their "way out". Secondly, the fact that you can walk anywhere all day wearing a weapon, but must somehow find another proper "safe" place for it when you have to pick up the kids from school or go to the movies is ludicrous. We need our 2nd amendment rights back for all day, everywhere, period.
