A civil rights victory

District court rules that the ban on interstate transfers through a dealer is unconstitutional. At issue is whether a Texas firearms dealer can transfer a handgun to a DC resident. Someone familiar with the case has a round up of links.

Can you purchase from out of state FFLs now? I wouldn’t bet on it.

    Thanks for the pointers!

    It depends.

    Currently, you can purchase a long arm from an out of state dealer if the sale is legal in both states, and you are in the out of state dealer’s shop. Many states restrict such purchases.

    Wyoming, for example, is silent on such sales, and people from states with similar lack of regulations can walk into a Cheyenne gun store, and just buy a rifle or shotgun.

    A liberal court victory – gay marriage, for example, people can rely on immediately. A conservative court victory is fraught with danger.

    The reason being that conservative court victories are always the court ordering the government to leave us alone, whereas liberal court victories are the court ordering the government to give taxpayer money and preferential treatment.

    – This is what happens when you allow government to exist.
