A Higher Authority

higher authorityA Lautenberg case is going the The Supreme Court.

SayUncle reports via Shall Not Be Questioned that a Tennessee case not concerned with The Second Amendment, per se will be heard by the court.

For the uninitiated, The Lautenberg Amendment is federal legislation providing any individual convicted of a domestic violence charge – even a misdemeanor from 20 years ago – prohibits ownership and possession of a firearm.

When this passed, many law enforcement and military personnel had to either change their job functions or quit outright.

This court case will help to define the scope of Lautenberg legislation.

As for Frank Lautenberg, the Senator who drafted this legislation, he passed into the next world June 3 of this year.

And presumably is also answering to a higher authority.

  1. It’ll be an interesting exercise, but I’m hearing an awful lot of law-abiding, patriotic Americans – who happen to also be gun owners – announcing that they will no longer comply with any gun laws which contravene the 2nd Amendment. Can’t say as I blame them, either.

    And is happily roasting in hell.
