It's open season on gun carriers.
A case out of the First Circuit has some painful lessons for gun carriers in Georgia. A United States Circuit Court of Appeals last week upheld the constitutionality of pointing a gun at any citizen daring to carry, lawfully, a concealed weapon in public.

Ok, I have only posted a handful of news articles here at ATS, and I cannot believe that no one has found this article to be disturbing? This is an extremely important ruling from the court of appeals and no one has a problem with it? Just what exactly has happened to this ATS community while I was gone?

Wouldn't it be the same to take away drivers license from someone who hasn't broken traffic laws? Or confiscating passport from someone for the crime of travelling? Completely ridicilous. Cops were wrong and now the courts can't make it look like that. System protecting it's own.

If a cop jumps out with a gun drawn on me like that I will not hesitate to shoot him right between his eyes! This court has failed miserably to uphold our constitution. They should be ashamed and that cop should be in jail, or dead.
