Some heartening news on the Second Amendment front:
First, the good people of Connecticut are defying that state’s new registration laws with some old-fashioned civil disobedience. This is what you get when you pass bad laws: people will not respect them, and will not obey them.
Second, the Ninth Circuit (!) has tossed out, as unjustifiably restrictive, the “good cause” provision in California’s handgun-carry law. This is a major victory for the citizens of the Golden State, and will no doubt set an important precedent. New York, for example, has similar restrictions; I hope this ruling will provide ammunition for related litigation there and elsewhere.
Third, this “bears” watching: the Supreme Court will be announcing shortly whether it will take on yet another basic Second Amendment issue.
