But I think that's wrong: the Florida "Docs vs. Glocks" law, it seems to me, violates the First Amendment.
That's the title of yesterday's post by Amber Phillips on The Post's The Fix blog; check it out for more details.
In 2015, twenty-eight states have enacted laws to expand protection of Second Amendment rights, and one state has enacted more restrictive gun control.
So the district court concluded in yesterday's Tracy Rifle & Pistol LLC v. Harris decision.
It's possible that his purchase of the gun could still have been blocked -- but it would have been complicated, and reports that he had a pending felony charge against him seem to be inaccurate.
The Oregon Supreme Court unanimously held this yesterday.
Fewer than four justices were interested in reviewing a Ninth Circuit decision upholding restrictions on gun possession in the home.
Another case dealing with a common but complicated question: When someone is openly carrying a gun, in one of the many states where such open carry is legal, when the police briefly but coercively stop him to investigate?
Licenses to possess guns, to speak, to marry, and more.
"While open-carry laws may put police officers ... in awkward situations from time to time, the Ohio legislature has decided its citizens may be entrusted with firearms on public streets. The Toledo Police Department has no authority to disregard this decision -- not to mention the protections of the Fourth Amendment -- by detaining every 'gunman' who lawfully possesses a firearm."
