Next on guns

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 6:57 AM

Unless I miss my guess, I doubt there are any gun restrictions on the books in Arkansas subject to challenge under yesterday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling. The legislature took away city and county home rule on gun legislation years ago.

But for gun nuts and their opposite number, there's good analysis in the NY Times of what will come next. The court's care to say many kinds of restrictions, including on specific weapons, would not be disturbed doesn't mean the NRA won't be out trying to blow holes in any impediment to quick arming of the populace with as many and as powerful guns as possible. Linda Greenhouse did her usual good reporting of the decision itself.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
