I say good for them, It's about time.

Never. Expect more restrictions with all their recent 'wins' since they are emboldened now.

Maybe your thread title isn't that far from a play on words after-all Mr_Gixxer .... here's an interesting take on the decision ....

http://constitutionalrightspac.com/artic...eciprocity

Quote:If you’re following any of the various media outlets this morning, you’re probably aware that the U.S. Supreme Court has just extended gay marriage to all 50 states.

The Supreme Court ruled Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry nationwide, in a historic decision that invalidates gay marriage bans in more than a dozen states.

Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia.

The court’s ruling on Friday means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage. The outcome is the culmination of two decades of Supreme Court litigation over marriage, and gay rights generally. You can peruse the full ruling here, but the meat of the activist Court’s over-long decision hinges on a single paragraph.

The Court used Section 1 of the Fourteen Amendment to justify their argument, which reads:

Amendment XIV Section 1. "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

By using the Constitution in such a manner, the Court argues that the Due Process Clause extends “certain personal choices central to individual dignity and autonomy” accepted in a majority of states across the state lines of a handful of states that still banned the practice.

The vast majority of states are “shall issue” on the matter of issuing concealed carry permits, and enjoy reciprocity with a large number of other states. My North Carolina concealed carry permit, for example, was recognized yesterday as being valid in 36 states, which just so happened to be the number of states in which gay marriage was legal yesterday.

But 14 states did not recognize my concealed carry permit yesterday. Today they must. Using the same “due process clause” argument as the Supreme Court just applied to gay marriage, my concealed carry permit must now be recognized as valid in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Well its a start. Hopefully we can scream this loud enough to make some changes. Maybe some of our gay gun owners could take up the cause. Nobody has a better chance of making this argument right now than them.

Carrying guns will be relegated as a "state matter" in the interest of public safety. The courts are not interested in using logic, reason or the law when it comes to making its rulings. I think the two Obamacare decisions should have made that clear already.

Agree. There's no way in hell they'll let this go through regarding guns without fighting it tooth and nail. Liberty and equality apply only to popular social justice causes.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.
