The Supreme Court heard arguments earlier this week over a New York gun law, its biggest gun case in more than a decade.  We talked about it a bit on the KIT Morning News cuz we are gun people, our audience is gun people and that's how we roll.

Supreme Court Takes On Gun Case

The law, which is similar to others in half a dozen states, restricts carrying a gun in public to those who can demonstrate a particular need for doing so.  Ten years ago the high court interpreted the 2nd amendment to mean people should be able to keep guns at home for self-defense. { Big stretch, that one, but thanks.}  Now the question I and others have is -- aren't we even more at risk out in the public than we are at home? (YES)  So if guns are ok for protection at home and I don't need to prove "special circumstances" ,  why would I need to demonstrate "special circumstances" to carry my gun in public where the most dangerous circumstances exist?

Chief Justice John Roberts asked why that should be necessary, saying, "The idea that you need a license to exercise the right, I think, is unusual in the context of the Bill of Rights."  About time you get one right John, we'll watch the court for its important decision likely next spring.

RUST Gun Mistake

Meanwhile, a high-profile accidental shooting is making headlines.  Some Hollywood liberals have a bad habit of supporting anti-gun initiatives and then making millions of dollars by making movies featuring guns of all kinds!  Nice to see that Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson didn't go down that path after the tragic fatal shooting that took place on the set of Alec Baldwin's movie "RUST,"

On October 21st,  Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot and killed when actor Alex Baldwin fired a gun believed to be loaded with blanks. It wasn't and the investigation into her death continues.

Good Call Rock

In the meantime, the Rock has vowed to stop using real firearms on any of his future movie sets  The action star and Seven Bucks Productions co-founder told Variety Wednesday (Nov. 3rd), “I can’t speak for anyone else, but I can tell you, without an absence of clarity here, that any movie that we have moving forward with Seven Bucks Productions — any movie, any television show, or anything we do or produce — we won’t use real guns at all.

Johnson says he is going to switch over to rubber guns and will take care of mimicking reality in post-production and he says he won’t worry about any increased costs.

A quote from Johnson is something everyone involved in America's gun debate should consider is this.-"in the wake of a tragedy, the most prudent thing and the smartest thing to do is just pause for a second and really re-examine how you’re going to move forward.”

Let's hope the Supreme Court exercises that kind of measured thought when it rules on the 2nd amendment, New York law, and public carry.
