There are a few things in life that I am absolutely uncompromising on.
When I say uncompromising, I mean I will not budge and will no longer vote for anyone who does not also believe what I believe on at least a few major issues.
One of them is the Second Amendment. If you are a regular reader, this will come as no surprise. A candidate has no chance with me unless he or she can prove that he or she is an ardent protector of my God-given right to own and carry a weapon.
So imagine my surprise and disgust when we learned that the U.S. Supreme Court is going to leave a bogus New Jersey law intact, limiting a U.S. citizens’ Constitutional right to carry a firearm outside the home.
The law in New Jersey states that one must have a “justifiable need” to carry a handgun in public. Last I checked, the Second Amendment is exactly ONE sentence, separated by 3 commas. The words “justifiable need” are not part of that ONE sentence.
